It is generally my policy to abstain from the consumption of musicals. I've even gone so far as to ban the playing of The Sound of Music in my home but, last night my fair lady made me watch "My Fair Lady" and I have to say...not that bad.
I could have lived without a few of the songs and certainly 3 hours was a bit excessive but, while I was bored with some songs I was highly entertained by others. I particularly enjoyed the songs featuring Professor Higgins. There is indeed some merit to pondering the question "Why can't women be more like men?"
And then there's dear Audrey Hepburn...someone put a halo over that woman's head. She's so beautiful and so charismatic. You can't help but love her, even when she's playing a simple flower girl.
The basic gist of the story (if you haven't seen it before) is that a well to do professor of phonetics makes a bet with another well to do colonel that he can turn a simple flower girl into a lady simply by altering her way of speaking. Of course, in the process he empowers the flower girl's confidence and unconscientiously teaches the woman to respect herself.
I won't ruin the end for you though I'm sure you can guess what happens. Like I said before, all in all a very good movie. I really enjoyed Sabrina and Breakfast at Tiffany's a lot more, so far as Audrey Hepburn movies go, but this movie is one of the better musicals I've seen in my time.
Anyway...I appreciate the prayer and support in my weight loss endeavors. I couldn't do it without the Translator, even though she thinks she's a bad influence, she really helps me to remember that I can be strong. That I can say no to cake...hard as that may be.
This is also, my first time doing 3 Word Wednesday. I actually really enjoy the idea and it certainly made me pick my words more carefully.
