Wintery Expectations

Happy Groundhog Day, everyone!┬áIt’s always a fun day for me because it gives me a great reason to watch one of those cult classic films called “Groundhog Day”. I don’t think I’ve ever missed a Groundhog Day where I haven’t seen that movie. It’s one of those movies that I remember watching over and over again when it came out in 1993 and then some years beyond. I loved it so much and I guess for many different reasons. It’s one of those movies I can sit and recite most of the lines to. I can do the same for most of Mrs. Doubtfire and The Lion King as well.

I ended up watching the movie alone as I usually end up doing, but that doesn’t bother me. I don’t know that many people who either like that movie as much as I do or have even heard of it. I often imagine what it would be like to relive one particular day over and over, and try to imagine what day I’d like for myself. It’s probably what has always fascinated me so much about this movie, even at 11 years old. And since I love Winter and the cold weather so much, I generously welcome six more weeks of it as Punxsutawney Phil predicts for us.

In other news, my front door is yellow today.
