Warning – Be Ready To Talk Guys
If you're not familiar with the movie "Hope Springs", it stars Meryl Streep, Tommy Lee Jones and Steve Carell.
It's about a woman who convinces her husband of 30 years to attend a week-long series of counseling sessions to regain their intimacy.
Suzette and I don't go to a lot of movies, but this is one she really wanted to see when it first came out - so off to the movies we went.
Wow, was I in for a surprise. Guys, I'm gonna warn you - there's no way you can properly prepare for "the can of worms" you're about to open.
You will laugh, that I can promise you - but you'll also find it real uncomfortable at times.
The funniest part - to me at least - was when the movie ended and everyone got up to walk out.
Every guy in the place - myself included - had that look of fear on their face, like we were a bunch of steers about to be led off to slaughter.
No one actually said it out loud, but I could tell we were all silently screaming to one other, "Help me...please!"
Meanwhile, every gal in the place had that, "I can't wait to get home so we can talk" look. Oh, no!
And to top it all off, most every woman wanted to hold hands while walking out of the theater
I'm not much for "displays of public affection," but guys, in this case, you have no choice. If you know what's good for you, you'll play along.
I know what you're thinking, "Chad, if the shoe fits, wear it." But I gotta tell you, this movie caught me completely off guard - in a good way though.
I really did enjoy the movie. I think it even helped me out at home...if you know what I mean.
But guys, if you do decide to watch the movie with your wife, be prepared - because you're gonna squirm like you've never squirmed before!
