“Diary of a Wimpy Kid” Shameless Fun

Yes, I love my classics. I enjoy trying to lift my mind to a higher plane than where much of the world around me resides. I love to learn and gain insight from the great writers of yesteryear. But sometimes, ya just gotta lighten up and have some silly fun. I think everybody has their favorite stupid books and movies. Nothing wrong with that.

Thanks to my kids, I have been introduced to Jeff Kinney’s Diary of a Wimpy Kid books and movies, which follow the hilarious daily life of tween Greg Hefley, his brother Rodrick, his friend Rowley, and several other of his family and friends. The books, written as Greg’s diary, are a super fast read, and the movies, let me tell you, I only watched the first one because my son just wanted me to watch it with him. I was doing a favor, you know. But I honestly haven’t laughed that hard and continuously at a movie since, I can’t remember when. The subsequent two movies were equally entertaining. I can watch them over and over.

Kinney has a way of taking experiences like we all had in junior high school and showing us how insanely funny they are, with maybe a little exaggeration thrown in. So go ahead, read, watch, nod your head, or shake it. It’s okay.
