Do you ever have those days where you say to yourself, “I think it’s time we show ah face at the local theatah.” Obviously you’d have a British accent, right? Sunday was one of those days because my fantasy team was tanking. Plus, Sunday Night Football was the Cowboys versus the Saints #whodatwhocares.
But the more I thought about it, the idea of sitting in a theater for 2 hours had the appeal of throwing a Mary Kay party so I came up with a plan.
Instead of going to the theater, I made a list of all the things I could do in the time I would’ve been away from home. Without further explanation, here is what I accomplished in exactly 3 hours:
♦ Fed my dogs
♦ did 105 push ups
♦ 1 load of laundry
♦ Wrote and posted this blog
♦ 1 phone call to my friend Travis in Florida
♦ Fed 2 other dogs staying with me, thanks to Rover.com
♦ Worked on editing a documentary trailer
♦ Read more of Scary Close by Donald Miller
♦ Made 2 delicious vegetarian grilled cheese sandwiches for dinner
All in all, I’m very happy with my decision to not go to the movies. And I have nothing against Mary Kay… its just, no.
