Texas Poll

Romantic Movies

   Last night my wife and I watched a romantic movie entitled Serendipity. That video has been enticing me to pick it up even back in the days of VHS tapes but I never borrowed it. I mean, a macho man like me watching a chick flick like that? No way! Right? But my wife chose that movie from Netflix so I watched the cutesy cutesy stuff and of course I sorta knew where this was going. But I have to tell you, I was sucked into the story by the time the guy and gal were separated by fate.

   Don't worry, if you haven't seen it yet, I'm not going to spoil the movie for you.

   I can understand why chicks like this but men --- what good are romantic movies to us? What makes them so endearing? I think of Sleepless in Seattle, Pretty Woman, My Best Friend's Wedding, You've Got Mail, etc. Every single one of them I didn't think I would enjoy ... but somehow I did. How dumb do those film makers think we are? Are we really that gullible?

   After the movie, I secretly glanced at my wife and I wondered why I deserved this woman. Though she had no makeup on and she was tired from the workday, she was still incredibly beautiful.

   So what good are romantic movies? Speaking for myself, romantic films are a flashback to my youth --- when hormones sparked the air and pimples adorned the landscape of my face --- a wishful era when I searched for my soulmate. Out of all the women in the world I chose this one and after all these seasons, after all the ups and downs, I still love her. No my wife isn't perfect. But (corny as it sounds) she's perfect for me. Men, you have been warned! Those romantic movies make your wives even more beautiful.

Judge Judy: The Case of the Stolen Wallet
Contributor: Art of Pasadena, CA

Judge Judy

Judge Judy couldn't believe how stupid the accused thief was and started laughing. It's really brief and it's a bit hard to understand what the guy said so you may have to replay it a couple of times.
Hint: He knew what was in the wallet.
