So there was this one time on Facebook I entered a random competition for movie premiere tickets to Bridget Jones’ Baby…and won!
Who doesn’t love Bridget??!!!
She’s clumsy, messy, imperfect and I instantly loved her 15 years ago when she first came into my own messy, heartbroken, forever fatalistic and a spinster life.
It was a little cheeky that I didn’t think twice it was happening on Father’s Day. I didn’t even feel guilty bringing my bestie as my plus one (Sorry, Mr Surfer).
Husbands are long suffering but when it comes to losing oneself in reenacting the ‘All By Myself’ lounge room scene, your bestie will steadfastly stand by you. Dying of embarrassment, no less.
Yeah, okay…I probably got carried away but some video editor liked the cray cray…(’Look mum, I’m on camera!’) so, yeah…“GO BRIDGET!”
I laughed, I cried. Full of emotion, B and I even held hands in the dark. (Yes, in the totally creepy way).
Forever #TeamDarcy, the popcorn and champagne may – I said may – have caused me to flip sides to #TeamMcDreamy. Just for a split moment.
Sure, I’m no longer by myself. I found my Mr Darcy but I am fell in love with this movie. I’ll definitely see it again…even if it’s all by myself.
Are you a Bridget Jones fan? On #TeamDarcy? Who will you take to see it?
