I played hooky today. Although I am 34 and have been grown for more years than I care to re-count, there is still a part of me that feels guilty taking off in the middle of the day and going to see a movie. Not only did I go see a 4:45 pm movie with a girlfriend, but we decided to go all the way with the high school re-enactment and stayed over to see another movie without paying for a second admission.
After a couple of weeks of non-stop work and travel including a 48-hour trip to NY for the the Hip Hop Honors awards, and a client flying town this weekend to shoot a commercial, I was behind in work and really had no business skipping out to see Sex in the City 2, let alone Queen Latifah and Common in Just Wright. Still I'm working on creating balance in my life so I accepted my girlfriends offer.
