Dopeness or Wackness

Remember when Blockbuster had those deals - 3 DVDs for $20?

Well little fun fact, my guy built up quite the collection in his day.


And lucky for me, we spent the early seasons of our relationship kissing on the couch + watching all the flicks.


Although this one in particular always makes me smile. It was one of the first movies we watched + it was playing the very first time he gave me a smooch.


But even more fitting is there is this one part in the movie where the the character Stephanie calls out Shapiro for his shitty perspective + it always sorta hit home for me. It went like this....


Stephanie : Know what your problem is, Shapiro? It's that you just have this really shitty way of looking at things, ya know? I don't have that problem. I just look at the dopeness. But you, it's like you just look at the wackness, ya know?


Luke Shapiro : I do?


Stephanie : All you have to do is look at me. And kiss me.

... It’s that simple. Either you see the Wackness or the Dopeness. You choose + I’ve always looked for the dopeness even if things were wack. That’s just me, Ms. Rose-colored Glasses.


Which one are you?


Here’s to traveling into a new decade — my glasses shined up + all dopeness in my view.
