I’m in Reno and it’s FUCKING hot.
It reminds me that in just a few days, I’ll be sitting in the heat in the Black Rock Desert while I enjoy myself at Burning Man.
At least right now I can go into an air conditioned movie theater and watch a film.
Which is EXACTLY what I did. . .
I saw Mamma Mia 2 with my sister Lisa and I BAWLED MY BLOODY EYES OUT!
I must’ve cried at least a half dozen times.
We’re not talking about the kind of crying where your eyes fill up with tears and you have to dab at them to keep from crying.
No, we’re talking FULL ON UGLY KARDASHIAN CRYING where you sob audibly in the theater and wipe your nose and your eyes with the same tissue, oblivious to the fact you’re getting snot ALL OVER YOUR FACE.
That’s the kind of crying I did.
And when Donna finally appeared in the film. . . well, all I can say is that I get emotional even now (three hours later) thinking how lucky we are the Meryl Streep is still alive.
Of course I can’t even look at a Swedish flag without thinking of (and missing) my Swede, so the scenes with Bill only served to make me miss him more.
But here I am, back at my sister’s house, enjoying a gin and tonic with blood oranges, all puffy eyed and runny nose.
It’s been a while since I had a good cry.
