I am not a fan of people who quote movie lines…to me it’s just not funny. I typically don’t even laugh when I hear the line in the movie so what makes you think I’d laugh when you say it? However, lately I can’t get a movie line out of my head!
In the movie “Old School” Will Ferrell is at a party and they want him to get drunk and he says that he can’t b/c he has a big day planned for the next day. The guy asks him what he has planned and he says, “Well, um, actually a pretty nice little Saturday, we’re going to go to Home Depot. Yeah, buy some wallpaper, maybe get some flooring, stuff like that. Maybe Bed, Bath, and Beyond, I don’t know, I don’t know if we’ll have enough time.”
When I heard that I remember (being a college freshman mind you) thinking who would run errands on Saturday? What a crappy Saturday! Duh, do errands during the week…why waste a Saturday doing errands? I silently vowed to myself to use my Saturdays doing MUCH more fun things. Now typically, I’ve lived up to that promise seeing that we travel all the time. We actually have every weekend of the summer booked solid except 2 of them! But, when we have been home, errand-running HAS been our Saturday!
Two Saturdays in a row we’ve been to LOWES haha. When we went this Saturday I just kept thinking of that movie line in my head over and over and how we are SO LAME now. Our weekends are “nice little Saturdays” going to Lowes and buying flowers! And it was fun! Is that sad or what? We’re such parents!!!
