A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to tear down, and a time to build. A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance ... a time to be silent, and a time to speak. A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: I love the movie "Legally Blonde" starring Reese Witherspoon. It's one of those comedies I will watch EVERY SINGLE TIME it airs.
WItherspoon is adorable as Elle Woods, the beautiful, perfectly-pink California babe jilted by her college boyfriend, the moronic heir to some stuffy New England fortune, Warner Huntington III. He dumps her right after their college graduation because he needs "a more serious girlfriend" when he attends Harvard Law School to become an attorney and, ostensibly, a U.S. Senator.
The thing about Elle is, she just wants to be taken seriously. Yet, because she's a rich, gorgeous sorority president with a 4.0 in Fashion Merchandising, everyone just thinks of her as a dumb blonde -- smoking hot and super sweet, of course, but dumb nonetheless. So, she does what any wise Cosmo girl would do, she chases Warner to Harvard to show him she IS smart by donning glasses, pantyhose, and earning her own Juris Doctorate degree from the prestigious university.
The film's chock full of cute moments but there are a few serious ones, especially the scene when Elle realizes Warner will never leave his proper, boring, frigid, and unkind fiance to return to her. She looks at him, her eyes welling with sadness when the realization finally hits her, and says, "I'm never going to be good enough for you, am I?" We've all been there, Elle. Sniff.
Guess what? The Big Guy saw to it that you were born a human on the only planet we know of where homo sapiens can, you know, breathe and stuff. Wink.
BOTTOM LINE: Somebody way more important than your loser of a college boyfriend thinks you're not only good enough, but flipping fabulous, Capisce? Oh, and count your pal pk on that list of those who think you are the Cat's Pajamas, too, yo. #BelieveInYourself
P.S. Dump the Warners in your life, ALL OF 'EM. Who knows? You just might end up tops in your class --and engaged to dreamy Luke Wilson, too!
