And Now for Something Completely Different...

Everyone deals with stress in their own peculiar way. I clench my teeth in the night and get knots in my shoulders.

I wish I didn't.

Byron sighs heavy sighs and carries a panicky look about him. (He can also get kind of grumpy.)

I wish he didn't.

But lately we're turning over a new leaf in stress management.

The closer we get to departure, the more the crunch comes down on us, the more frequently we watch Nacho Libre.

Yep, it's Jack Black to the rescue. (Three times in the last five evenings!)

I think it's the missionary theme and the work with orphans that must be drawing us in.


"It sucks to be me right now!"

I am not sure how I still have not seen this movie. Netflix to the rescue. I'm very happy to find you Borden's de-stressing through laughter.

Rachel said...

That's hilarious. I haven't seen it all the way through, but I have friends who own a DVD version that came with a little superhero outfit that slides onto the cover. Weird. and funny. and stress-relieving. : )

(lisa, I'm a fellow teeth-clencher, much to my dentist's dismay. : )

Sue said...

Heather wasn't joking! She told us on the way home today that her Dad asks her every evening if she wants to watch Nacho Libre again.
Hilariously funny how you guys get the stress out! Hats off to you for laughing at a time like this rather than digging in to get the job done and blasting anyone who might get in your way.
Come eat at our house and my kids will bust your gut with their word for word recanting of the funny lines!!
Love you all the more as I get to know your best sides!!

i have to say that you really need to be in a stupidly silly kind of mood to watch Nacho Libre... but that seems to come easily for us :-)

I love that film it really works for us as a family, my boys love wrestling! and we would all like to live in Mexico sometime, the monastic way of life is cool, and also I would quite like Tracy to dress as a nun.

we also used a little "school of rock" to de-stress

cause you're not hard core...unless you live hard core


lisa said...

Yea, School of Rock is another helpful anti-stress agent. "I pledge allegiance... to the band... of Mr. Schneebly... and will not fight him... for creative control... and will defer to him on all issues related to the musical direction of the band."

Brian, I think our families could get along very well :-)
