(An A to Z 2014 Challenge Entry)
For the first time, in a long time, I actually went to see a movie at the theater in 3D. That movie was The LEGO Movie. The song above is basically it’s theme song. It’s awesome. Be careful, it’s pretty contagious. If you haven’t yet seen the movie, I highly recommend it. It’s a great film for kids and adults alike. Though, I do feel it leaned more heavily on the kids side, and avoided throwing in too much adult humor; at least in comparison to other animated films. But if you played with LEGOs when growing up (or still do…), or ever played and enjoyed any of the multitude of LEGO games available, then I feel this is definitely a movie for you.
It was more than just a nostalgic trip down memory lane, though, as there were some important messages bleeding through an otherwise simplistic storyline. I’m glad I was unaware of these aspects of the movie before going in, so I could experience them — especially one very pivotal moment — without it having been previously tarnished by spoilers. Seeing it during the opening weekend probably helped.
After leaving the theater, this song was repeatedly sung over and over by the Ladyfolk and I. Well, at least the “everything is awesome” part. Eventually, with some minor research we were able to find the lyrics and could sing the first verse. For at least two weeks, when people would text me asking how I was, “EVERYTHING IS AWESOME” was my response. Some were baffled, but most eventually caught on to it’s origin.
Even now, the Ladyfolk and I will randomly blurt out those first song lyrics, but somewhere down the line, the meaning behind the words became twisted… dirty.
You see, after a passionate night of intimacy, the Ladyfolk sang that specific line of lyrics. As ingenious as my mind is, I instantly was able to see clear what was hidden from plain sight, in plain sight. Much like the Davinci Code, the secret meaning behind those three words was unlocked to me. The Code was: “I want sex”.
To be fair, though, I possess the incredible ability of turning everything into code for sex. It’s like my superhuman power! Or maybe I’m a mutant and the power has been directly imprinted in my DNA from conception. The next step in human evolution! The future of mankind!
“Good night.” = “I want sex.”
“Good morning.” = “I want sex.”
“How was your day?” = “How have we survived so long without sex? Let’s do it now!”
“When do you want to have dinner?” = “When do you want to have sex?”
“Would you like any hot sauce with that?” = “I think you’re hot, let’s have sex!”
“Fuck me, I think I just twisted my ankle!” = “Fuck me!”*
Anyhow, you get the idea. So now whenever my girlfriend says “everything is awesome” I tell her I know exactly what that means!
So, what’s the moral of this story?
I’m not sure, but the Ladyfolk is asking me if I’m done with my “E” post yet, and I’m almost positive I know exactly what she’s asking...
*It happens that I was wrong about this one… thankfully it was nothing serious…**
**The rest I’m sure I’m sure I’m spot on about…
Have you seen The LEGO Movie? If so, (no spoilers - you know what I mean…) what did you think of it? If not, get on it! Do you and your significant other (spouse, lover, etc) ever use any Code for when wanting to get… busy…?
