Sometimes the universe (by which I mean Linda) sends a curveball, sometimes it lobs something right over the plate. A nice fat softball just waiting to get whacked out of the park.

Gee, look at me using all the sports metaphors like a…sporty person.

How on earth did Linda know I had the movie Butter on my blog planner for half of February? I missed my chance right after we watched it then the next week flew by. Before I knew it I was measuring out whether to transfer those notes to my March sheet and here we are, one week later, looking at “butter” for the first March prompt. The fates (and Linda) have spoken.

Let me just drop this here.

This was a movie recommendation. I was kind of cranky the night we loaded it up and remember telling BrightSide I’d know in fifteen minutes if I was on board. Six minutes into the movie I was gasping through my tears omg, I’m gonna tinkle, I’m in! I’m in!! We watched it on HBO Max and I laughed myself silly.

What’s it about, you ask? There’s the rub. This movie defies explanation. It’s about love and America and family and values and strippers and sex and dirty tricks in an Iowa butter carving competition which, hand to God, is apparently an actual thing. I can’t tell you what it’s about, I can only tell you if you enjoy highly irreverent humor then it’s must see tv.

Linda hosts Stream of Consciousness Saturday. This week’s prompt is “butter.” Use it as a noun, use it as a verb, use it any way you’d like. Have fun!
