Life. Laughs. Ideas. Insights. From A Newly Liberated Mom
April 28, 2013
There’s been a muted excitement seething in our household since we received those free tickets from Robert Downey Jr. to Iron Man 3 that comes with free popcorn and soda. So that makes this a much anticipated Saturday, kinda. We arrived early, were second in line for the popcorn and second in line when the cinema opened for seating.
Is it obvious that we’re huge fans of superhero action flicks? Well, there’s a certain thrill to losing yourself in the imaginary world of a superhero and his cool tech gadgets. So it is, with Iron Man 3, I mean, who am I kiddin’? It’s a darned good movie with lots of clankermankering metal, collapsing concrete and fiery fellows, that’s all I’m going to say. I’m not going to spoil it for you.
But I will say this. Tony Stark has been upgrading and building more Iron Man suits. At the rate he’s going, these suits might soon be available at Walmart. Which isn’t a bad idea, if you ask me. Frankly, I wouldn’t mind Jarvis flying me around in an Iron Man suit. Sure beats driving! And what could be more romantic than being the woman a superhero swoops down to rescue? Except that it’s not the case here (hint hint!) 😉 .
Anyhoo, excuse the rambling. After the movie, a late lunch for us. Funny how we never get tired of Japanese food but wouldn’t touch Korean food with a 10-foot pole.
Then my bookworms popped upstairs to the bookstore while I ran a quick round of groceries. Their small haul of only 3 books, one of which is The Count of Monte Cristo, a classic that’s somehow not in our home library but we watched the movie recently and my girls loved it and say it’s now time to read the book.
Sunday is our day to be lazy. A day of simple-to-the-point-of-boring meals, lounge around at home and just do nothing much in general. I would’ve used the word hibernate but it’s in danger of over-exposure.
