The other night Hot Stuff and I were watching Phoebe in Wonderland. It was an interesting movie, made more so by their very honest portrayal of the emotional balancing act motherhood is. At one point Felicity Huffman, the mom, was crying, saying, "I don't want to get to the end of my life and have nothing to show for it, nothing important."
Hot Stuff shook his head. "See, people don't get it. It's not about being important!" He paused slightly, and I smiled at my husband's wisdom, assuming he was going to say something along the lines of it's about living a good life regardless of how many people care. However, he continued: "It's about destruction and conquest! Just look at history! Those are the only people who matter."
Yes, folks, he's fun to watch movies with.
Now if you'll excuse me, I've got some destruction and conquest to plan.
