I loved it so much for these reasons:
- It's awesome.
- When I think of ukeleles, I usually think of Hawaiian guys in floral shirts and Mai Tais.
- It takes an idea and totally turns it on its head.
These days, I feel like so many people think they've seen it all, and they have all these pre-conceived ideas of things. "I know what that's going to be like, and I know it's going to be terrible." Where have all the open minds gone? Why all the assumptions, folks?
When you see me sitting on a park bench with my knitting needles, what do you assume? That I'm a dull, unmarried spinster with no life and nothing interesting to say?
If I'd let my assumptions about ukeleles and the people who play them get in the way tonight, then I would have never seen this.
What a shame that would have been.
