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!
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.
The other – not so much.
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.
