Like yesterday, the Maple Leafs are playing again, and as much as I want to forsake i and get on with the story, The fact that we are down by a large margin at the end of the first period given me the opportunity to turn it off, or watch the stage a come back.
I stick with it.
Then, we make a decision to go and see a movie, Last Christmas, because it looked interesting when we saw the preview some weeks ago.
That means mossing half of the third period of the ice hockey if we’re going there. Well, there’s always the live broadcast via the phone.
It is not easy driving a car and listening to a brilliant comeback by the Leafs, and the excitement in the car is almost at the same fever pitch as the commentators.
Alas, we lose.
As for the movie, it was everything we hoped for. Two delightful leads who didn’t overact, Emma Thompson as a Yugoslav, and Michelle Yeoh in a restrained performance that I’m unused to seeing her in. Perhaps Star Trek Discovery kick-arse was not needed here.
Christmas, no swearing, no killing sprees, a few songs, and a lesson hidden between the lines. What more could one ask for?
As for the story, I’m having a coffee and then it’ll be time to get back into the groove.
Or watch Jack Ryan series 2…
