Alright, I thought that I should tell you guys about something that has been a part of my life for the last several years that I have been doing with my siblings for the last several years. And nope, it has nothing to do with Monday. I just found that picture and thought it was hysterical.
So, in my house growing up, before you could watch the Lord of the Rings movies (since they came first), you had to read the books. But, before you could read the Lord of the Rings, you had to read The Hobbit ahead of that. It was such a process to watch a couple of movies. The first time I watched the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, it was with my parents and older siblings. No talking, just watching. As the years went on, and my younger siblings read the books and joined in the fun. And when I say fun, I mean fun!
My younger sister has a very similar type of sense of humor to me: dry, witty, and sarcastic. We watch the Hobbit movies and the Lord of the Rings, the witticisms fly like nobody’s business! I keep saying we need to film ourselves watching them, because nobody would believe us otherwise. We make each other laugh and/or what we say, fits with the moment in the movie. We nail it every time. And it’s not like we watch the movies all the time. We space them out, and only try to watch them once or twice a year because they take up so much time. But, I will say this: if I didn’t watch these movies with my younger sister and younger brother, I wouldn’t enjoy half as much.
And on that note, it’s been real!
