☆ Things One Should Remember When Fucking Around ☆

The Bottom Line

‘Misty’ is good for waterfalls. It’s not good for long-term plans, ideas or goals.

In Detail

If anyone needs a vacation, it’s you. You’ve been working hard nonstop, both physically and emotionally. Now, while you have the chance, it’s time to get away. If you have a travel partner to play hooky with, so much the better. If you don’t, that shouldn’t stop you from going. You can bet that you’ll find one there waiting for you when you arrive.

Maybe that would explain why I keep waking up feeling really, REALLY tired.

I woke up at 3:00 pm again today.  That’s really starting to bother me.  And it really doesn’t put me in a good mood.

Anyway, I had every intention of writing something about this movie that I caught on cable yesterday while I was preparing to go to work.  I have no idea what the title was, only that it starred Richard Gomez, Maricel Laxa, Janice de Belen and whoever thought up the plot should be crucified.

I wasn’t able to watch the entire film, so I don’t know if there was some key scene that I missed that would have made me understand why what happened was acceptable, but what I did manage to catch was horrific.  Gomez was married to Laxa.  Unfortunately, she became too focused on her work and they eventually drifted apart.  Gomez then has an affair with de Belen, a teacher in their child’s school, and doesn’t even bother to hide it from their son.  Laxa, while tucking in their son to bed, finds out that her husband is telling another woman that he loves her.  She confronts him and he doesn’t even deny it.  She then goes to the principal’s office the next day.  De Belen ends up being forced to resign due to all the moral repercussions her extra-curricular activities may cause the reputation of the school.  Gomez then morphs into the Knight in Shining Armor and takes her into his house.  Where he lives.  And his wife lives.

How stupid was that?  If he felt more like a man when he was with his mistress, then yes, maybe he should be with her instead of living a lie with his wife and his child and putting everyone in misery.  I know this country doesn’t believe in divorce, but that doesn’t mean that we get to put the spouses that we’ve gotten sick of to shame by having the third party under the same roof.  You want to fuck around with someone else?  Then go ahead and do it in another place.  Learn to pay your own bills and live your own life and owe up to your own actions.  Yes, she may have turned out to be a bad wife and yes, she might have deserved being left by her husband, but the level of embarrassment that she had to go through was nearly inhumane.

And the other woman!  Good Goddess!  If the man that you’re bedding happens to be married and asks you to move in, make sure that the wife isn’t there.  I agree that there was an attempt to leave at some point during the film, but that just completely flew out the window when she uttered the words “I didn’t have a choice”.  What, you couldn’t say no to living with your boyfriend’s wife?  Yes, I believe that we all become a little detached from reality when we fall head over heels in love, but that doesn’t give people the excuse to morph into complete idiots who fail to retain any ounce of self-respect.

Wow… that was a lot.  I’m glad that’s out of my system.
