I became an avid fan of Sex and the City after the WB...oh, sorry, CW...started airing the edited versions regularly. There was something about these four characters that struck a cord--maybe it was their vulnerability, maybe it was their shoe addictions or maybe just the way they related to each other--but whatever the reason, I quickly got hooked on the show. Although I didn't see the series finale until well after it originally aired, I still had Sex and the City withdrawals after I had seen all of the episodes. But then the producers of Sex and the City did something that took some of the sting out of having to say goodbye to a favorite TV series.
They made a movie.
I have had May 30 circled on my calendar for quite some time. I couldn't wait for the movie to come out. I had been debating whether or not to beg Hubby to take me to see it, or to just go with a friend at some point when he was otherwise occupied. My plan on Friday was to come home and feel him out, and then based on his response to the "What do you want to do tonight" query make my decision.
But before I even had a chance to ask him, he gave me this:
He had ordered the tickets online the day before, and picked them up before I got home from work. Then he put them in the glass with the shreddy poofy stuff and surprised me with it.
Is he great or what? He took me to go see the movie, even though he knew he'd be one of, like, 10 other guys in the theater (and for the record, there were only 5 other guys in the theater), and even though it would never have been something he would otherwise have watched.
I'll pause here while everyone oohs and aahs over my husband's act of generosity.
Done? Then we can proceed to talking about the movie. I won't go into too much detail in case some of you have yet to see it, but I will say that it stayed fairly true to the series. The character interaction was the same, and it was just as funny as ever. The only surprise that I found was that I had never bothered to wonder just how edited the CW version was...let's just say it is now apparent that the CW version eliminated the "sex" from Sex and the City, and the movie definitely did not. So that would be one thing to keep in mind if you've only ever seen the edited versions like me.
Honey, if you're reading this, I had a great time Friday. :) Thank you.
