One of the cool things about my job is that I get a day off in the middle of the week. My pastor takes Fridays off so I take Thursdays as my day to rest. That works great for me because my whole week sort of revolves around our Wednesday night event and on Thursday I am normally tired and ready for a break. On those rare days that I end up working on Thursdays I don’t normally get as much done.
Today my wife and I went to watch a movie (one of the perks of having kids in school) which started at 10:40. We are officially old people. We watched “The Greatest Showman” and even thought it has very little in the way of actual history in it (it would be hard to even call it a biopic for all of the liberties that it takes) it is a fun family musical that is clean and doesn’t have bumbling parents or yelling kids rebelling against authority, so it is a rare bread.
It isn’t going to blow you away with its social commentary. The lessons that it teaches are presented with all of the deftness of your typical Hallmark movie, and the story is cheesy enough that you could bring chips and have some nachos, but that doesn’t mean that the movie isn’t great for what it is. It is a fun way to spend a couple of hours for families, especially those who like musicals.
Anyway, didn’t mean to get into a big review. Just bragging that I had a day off.
