I try to make life better for people who haven’t been as blessed as I have. Sometimes, opportunities simply arise that allow me to provide other with joy. Tonight is one of those occasions.
Can you believe The Electrician has never seen Dirty Dancing? Out of the goodness of my heart, I’m rectifying that issue tonight. No one should be deprived of one of the staples of a rich and fulfilling life.
It’s the Family Day Long Weekend (hallelujah) and the thought of three days off is beautiful to the verge of pain. The Electrician and I have collapsed on the couch to watch a movie, and it’s my pick. We’ve watched way too many “boy” movies lately. We agreed that tonight was my pick, and I’ve chosen well. I figure a little Patrick Swayze makes every Saturday better, and now The Electrician will actually get the little quips I make during our Monday night beginners’ ballroom class.
Ah, we’re at the scene with the watermelons and the pelvic swinging. The Electrician just said, “How would it feel to walk into a room, and have everyone applaud and cheer for you?” How funny to watch someone see Dirty Dancing for the first time.
“Oh honey,” I replied, “that’s Patrick Swayze. It’s illegal not to clap when he enters a room.” My sweetie has a lot to learn.
In the end, it’s all about improving the lives of people around me, and I’m always happy to give back.
And I’d like some watermelon.
