I think it’s safe to say that no one loves this movie more than me!! It doesn’t hurt that under that mask, he looks like this either…
… oh, my he’s pretty.
When “The Phantom of the Opera” came out at the theater, a friend and I (not Jodi, because I wanted someone to watch the movie with, not sit next to while they nap) went without a lot of anticipation. Because I don’t get out much, I didn’t know anything about “The Phantom of the Opera”. So, I wasn’t too thrilled when I realized it was a musical (even though I love musicals), but after about 15 minutes I forgot they were even singing. I went back the next day and took two of my sisters and my mom. I went back the next day with another friend. I ended up seeing it in the theater 7 times in, I think, 9 days. I also had a “viewing party” at my house when it came out on DVD. Yep.
I haven’t seen it in a while, but tonight when Courtney was here checking on Tyler, we all watched it. Good times.
At one point when I made a comment about how much I love the Phantom, Tyler says, “Do you remember when Kale came out with that toilet paper mask on?” I got so tickled remembering it! Kale, my serious child, making fun of my obsession of all things Phantom, when he was still living at home, came out from his room one night with toilet paper carefully torn in the shape of the Phantom’s mask and double-sided taped to his face and a towel worn as a cape around his shoulders. It was SO funny. (I only wish I had a picture.) It reminds me of the time he came out and surprised me with his "mock Mom for all the first day of school photos she made me take" outfit.
Have I mentioned how much joy my boys bring me???
So glad you’re about to get a summer break, Kale. And I’m ever so proud of your hard work and STILL bringing home those good “report cards” after all these years! One semester left. God’s got big plans for you.
