My random thought of the day.

Wouldn’t it be lovely, if sometimes (OK, just sometimes) my life would be like a 1960’s movie?

I was thinking of a skit (either Saturday Night Live or Mad TV, I can’t remember) called, “It’s the 60’s movie!” It consisted of men running after women in bikinis, someone in a gorilla suit, a chase scene involving small sport cars, everyone would stop suddenly and dance and then there was more chasing, more bikinis, more careening little cars and another shot of a person in a gorilla suit. Everything was set to the wild 60’s go-go dancing music.

It’s exactly the kind of fluff that can take a difficult day and make it not just better, but exhilarating. Imagine dancing, running, racing sporty little cars and seeing someone in a gorilla suit — that sounds like amazing fun!

It’s nothing I want to do on a daily basis — that would be exhausting. But once every couple of years, I’d like to live like I am living in a 60’s movie.
