Hello, Thursday Morning!

I’ve been thinking about a schedule change for a while. Work and other obligations keep me away from my computer most of the day on Tuesday, making it difficult to keep up with my regular Tuesday blog post, and all the work that goes along with it.

From today forward, you’ll find me here on Thursday mornings. I’m calling it, Hello, Thursday Mornings.

I’ll still write about a variety of topics, as I have in the past, including the occasional devotional and…coffee. I know that caught your attention. Include coffee, a cute kitty, or puppy, maybe a horse or two, and you’re bound to get attention.

That’s not why I do it, of course. I’m a fan of all those things.

So, without further ado (or something like that), I offer the first installment of Hello, Thursday Mornings.

I was watching a cute romantic movie the other night (I’ll mention the name later), and I had to laugh out loud. I was home alone at the time, so I could do that. The main character, a single, attractive twenty-something, was on a first date. The couple was shown to a table in the restaurant. She chose her seat. Her date hesitated, because it was obvious he preferred the chair she had taken, and a moment later, the reason why became obvious. There was a football game on. Her chair faced the television. His…didn’t.

I laughed, because this often happens when my husband and I go out for dinner. These days, I usually just ask which side of the table he prefers. But we’ve been married a while. I can’t imagine putting up with something like that on a very first date. A first date is when you’re becoming better acquainted. Getting to know each other usually includes eye contact and conversation. A game on the television can disrupt that.

In fact, I think that sort of behavior would be a definite deal-breaker. Clearly, the guy is far more interested in sports than in his date. She tried to get his attention, but when she asked what interests he had outside of sports and coaching (his profession), he hesitated. Eventually, he admitted to a love for karaoke. A very uncomfortable scene followed, while he demonstrated his lack of musical talent.

It wasn’t a great movie, but it was mostly fun to watch, with the exception of the karaoke scene. It was a good idea for a story, and most of the actors were cute enough to make it pleasant. The story featured coffee, the sea, a woman who could eat numerous pastries without gaining an ounce, and romance. If they’d included a dog or cat, it would’ve been perfect.

Coffee Shop is worth a watch, if you like cute romances. It’s not rated, but there’s really nothing to offend, and it’s suitable for family viewing. I gave it four out of five stars on Netflix.

If you’re a fan of romantic comedy, what’s your all-time favorite?

    Until I met my hubby, I always thought it was the woman’s choice of where to sit. πŸ™‚ But I soon learned that he has a preference in every restaurant, and it’s not always the same spot. He’s a people watcher and tends to be an extrovert, so he wants to be where he can see what’s happening in the kitchen or what’s happening with the other diners – whichever happens to be busier. But he also tends to want his back to the wall (it’s an old cowboy thing and he thinks he is one), so I’ve just learned to ask him before I try to figure it out. Ha!

    I love rom-coms, and it’s too hard to name just one. Notting Hill and My Big Fat Greek Wedding are two of my top favorites.

      I love that cowboy thing. My husband also likes to face the door so he can keep an eye on the situation and protect me. Lol Love your movie choices–two of my favorites.

      That makes perfect sense, Gail, that a former cop would think to do that. That’s actually kind of romantic, don’t you think? Two votes for MBFGW! I liked that one, too.
