Today, I paid my mom a surprise visit and took her to see The Family that Preys. I got to say, Tyler Perry did it again. I must admit that I didn’t think that the movie was going to be any good, but one of my female co-workers said it was the bomb. It was funny and sad all at once. I thought it was going to be contrived, but nope; Mr. Tyler did his thing, although I do believe that it could have did without his presence. No offense to him.
I gotta tell you, the funny thing about surprising my mom as apposed to letting her know in advanced, is the fact that we got to the movies on time. How funny is it that I can let her know a day, even a week, a head of time and she will never be ready on time. Surprise her and we are right on schedule. Even she noticed and commented on it while we were en route to the movies. We got there in time to see all of the previews, and that never happens. She saw lots of movies that she wanted to see next, included Bernie Mac’s last movie; Soul Men. I didn’t think it looked any good and I can’t just go to see a movie in memory of a late actor.
After the movies my mom wanted me to take her to El Chico’s to get her something for dinner. Being the loving big brother that I am, I called both my brother and sister to see if they wanted anything to eat. Of course they did. So, I ended up buying food for all for of us and Manny, of course. Then I ended up spending the entire day with them. I love my little Manny to death, but I tell you, he will wear a brother out. I mean, he went hour upon hour without shutting up. I swear the boy has Energizer batteries shoved up his rear end. I told him on five different occasions that I was going to start beating him with a stick. I have no idea why he never takes me seriously.
He is such a happy baby boy. So happy in fact that I accused his mommy of getting him drunk. The boy is a nut bag, but he cracks me up. If laughter adds years to your life, he will live to be like a thousand and I will live to be a hundred and ten. I gave him his bath, put him on his pj’s, and read him two books before receiving a big hug around the neck and a kiss on the cheek. I told him I love him and to learn a lot at school. He told me no and said he loved me too. He is such a little bastard. I wish he did ever have to grow up.
Anyway, go see the Family that Prey’s. It will be well worth the money. Over here, it just cost five dollars of two adult tickets. HA! Don’t hate.
-One Man's Opinion. Peace.
