Friday Afternoon Confessional: Father, is it okay if I don’t kneel?
I confess this morning my knees did not seem to be all that crazy about my four mile run yesterday. I confess this has me pretty nervous about the next two months since I’m going to be doing a lot of runs a lot longer than four miles. I confess concern for my aching knees makes the title of this post sound much more scandalous than intended.
I confess I had lunch with my brother yesterday and it was idyllic. We grabbed lunch, sat on the restaurant’s sidewalk cafe and just talked for about an hour. I certainly don’t begrudge my brother his beautiful family and the responsibilities that come with him being a father. Having said that, it was immensely enjoyable being able to sit and talk without the distractions those responsibilities can bring. It can sometimes feel like family is pulling you from things you’d prefer to be doing. It’s nice when you can sit down with family and be reminded why you allow those connections to dictate your calendar from time to time.
I confess I’m really pulling for Louis CK to pull his show back on the tracks. I haven’t been crazy about the last three episodes (I haven’t watched this Thursday’s episode yet) and if it doesn’t recover, my essay about his popularity won’t have the benefit of ideal timing. That said, he did kind of warn us what we were in for with his show.
There was a scene – I think from season two – where he earns a meeting with a Hollywood producer where she wants to pick his brain for movie ideas. When they meet Louie describes a movie that doesn’t exactly sound watchable, much less enjoyable, and the producer just excuses herself and leaves to go talk to somebody else. I confess I fear season three is starting to become the “real” version of that dreadful movie plot.
I confess having two consecutive posts, both of which are part of a weekly feature, leaves me to wonder if what’s being said here is echoing off the empty walls.
What about you, hypothetical readers? Did you do anything that would cause the nuns to shake their heads in disapproval?
