Dear Avengers...

the avengers family movie

Tonight was movie night.  The Avengers.  3D.  Packed theater.  It was fantastic-- my favorite superhero movie to date.  It was awesome in every way.  From the elbow to elbow crowd, to the uproars of laughter...to the cheering at the end.  Literally, an ovation from the theater full of people. (Myself included.  I admit it.)  For these superheroes that saved our world.  The four of us loved it.  Loved.  It.  

Thank you Avengers for a great family movie night.  You did not disappoint...

To Captain America, 
You are vintage, man.  And kinda Ken-doll-ish.  But you rock that shield. And that blue suit.  As cheesy as it could be, you pull it off--even blow it up.  Boots and all.  Thanks for your red-white-and-blue awesomeness.  

Hey Thor,
My sisters are in love with you.  I wasn't sure if I was Team Thor after your movie last year...but you grew on me tonight.  I like your poetic nature.  Your other-worldliness.  Your big muscles.  Even that straggly blonde hair is kind of hot.  And that hammer.  Dude.  You are a beast.

I'm not sure if you realize, but you were in this movie called Hurt Locker a while back.  You are super cute, whether you are in fatigues or shooting arrows.  I am officially a fan.  And up against the Hunger Games chick-- you win the archery award.  Hands down.

Dearest Black Widow, 
I will forever dream about looking like you in a body suit.  And Niamh wonders what kind of lip gloss you are using to get those puffy lips.  Your hair is the perfect red.  I think every mom should have a smidge, just a smidge, of your totally awesome interrogation skills.  And you hold your own in a group of super men. That is sexy.

I love you.  I love your green-ness.  Your mean-ness.  Your ability to make a high intensity moment extremely funny.  I love how you rip through your clothes.  And how your anger fuels your passion.  I run best when I'm angry...so I guess on a tiny scale, I get you.  You will forever be one of my very favorite superheroes.  I wanted to high five you at the end of the movie.  And hug you, too.  And the human side of you-- finally the perfect guy to play it.  Green perfection tonight.  Perfection.

Iron Man.
I know you are a bit of a playa;). A teensie bit big-headed.  Maybe even full on cocky.  You are sarcastic and sometimes selfish.  And you know how to instigate a fight.  But you are by far my favorite.  I'm smitten.  And very jealous of the whole Pepper Pots thing you have going on.  I love that you have a witty, snide remark for almost everything...but at your core, you are good.  Even heroic.  You are a fly boy-- thrusters, Jarvis, glowey heart, and all.
