It's not just about breakfast

Tonight I watched The Breakfast Club on netflix. Do you use the "instant play" feature on netflix? If not, you should. It is probably the best use for an internet connection that I have found! Click. Watch. Love it!

I couldn't believe that the last time I saw this film was probably when it came out in 1985! Wow. I have to admit though that the only scene I vividly remembered was the Ally Sheedy character making "snow" on the winter scene drawing with her dandruff. So gross.

In one synopsis I was looking at tonight, it summed up The Breakfast Club this way: Five high school students, all different stereotypes, meet in detention, where they pour their hearts out to each other, and discover how they have a lot more in common than they thought.

Watching this film quickly took me back in time to my own teen years. Remember the teenager feelings of trying to figure out who you are and who you want to be? And what's crazy is that now I look at my own kids who are in that crazy time of life called adolescence! I can tell you that it's a lot easier watching the teen than it was for me being the teen. Maybe that's just me, but I prefer adulthood!

In some ways, a lot has changed in the world since 1985. In other ways, nothing has changed. People are still people and growing up is still growing up. And spending time together always helps people get along.

PS:  OK girls, weren't we all just a little jealous of Molly when she got to plant one on Judd Nelson at the end of a hard day in detention?
