What’s a motto?

Posted on

Nothing! What’s a motto with you?!

Sorry, just a little Lion King humor.

As one of my favorite movies, I was beyond excited to hear that it was coming back out in 3D. I counted down the days until it premiered this weekend.

My initial plans to see it fell through, but thankfully I was able to find another friend who was willing to go with me and duet on all the songs.

As we were walking in, I heard a little kid say to his dad, “I am so excited! We are going to see YOUR Lion King!”

My friend and I weren’t the oldest people in the theatre, but I think we were the oldest who didn’t bring any kids with us.

In all seriousness, you can learn a lot of great life lessons from The Lion King. Here’s my favorite:

Adult Simba: I know what I have to do. But going back will mean facing my past. I’ve been running from it for so long.
[Rafiki hits Simba on the head with his stick]
Adult Simba: Ow! Jeez, what was that for?
Rafiki: It doesn’t matter. It’s in the past. [laughs]
Adult Simba: Yeah, but it still hurts.
Rafiki: Oh yes, the past can hurt. But the way I see it, you can either run from it, or… learn from it.
[swings his stick at Simba again who ducks out of the way]
Rafiki: Ha. You See? So what are you going to do?

Seeing the movie in the theatre was just as awesome as I remember from 7th grade. I wanted to get a picture with the poster, but some kid wouldn’t get out of the way!
Lion King 3D
Watching all those giants cats left me thinking about my cats back home. I think one of them would love to live her life on camera.
Bes loves attention
The other – not so much.
Rose does not
They both did agree to film a short clip for me tonight. Whether or not they have a full food dish, the cats both come running and meow for all their worth any time I open the pantry.

Still single folks, still single.

  1. I say that Rafiki line all the time in character of course!

    The Lion King came out the year George was born. Before the title was shown Jasmine and I were both crying and wanting to leave the theater to cancel out first date night out as parents.

    Yeah, we have learned to pick more exciting date nights now but at the time, it was good!

  2. I wouldn’t call you a crazy cat lady. I might hazard a slightly strange and unpredictable cat aficionado. ‘Cause that’s how I roll.

  3. I love Rafiki, too! I’m very impressed that you can get your cats to sit!

  4. Holy cat tricks, Batman! (Or is it Catwoman?)
