What's it about?
Groundhog Day the Musical is a Broadway rendition of the classic Bill Murray film, Groundhog Day.
What I experienced?
Like the movie, this musical played with the idea of our news reporter being an all-around grouch and having to live the same groundhog day over and over again. This happens in the hopes that one day our news reporter will essentially stop being an asshole.
Thinking about the premise of the movie/musical only one question continuously comes to mind…
What would I do if I was stuck in that particular situation??
It’s a fun and nonsensical idea to think about, don’t you think? How would you deal with that situation?
Funny enough, I’m a slightly superstitious person and I was kind of iffy on talking about this subject. But in all honesty, it’s virtually impossible for this to ever happen to me so I feel free enough to be able to talk about this and not jinx myself.
I’m always kind of salty on my birthday. Every year I have high hopes for the day and every year I get let down in some way or another. So let’s use this day as an example for my own Groundhog Day experience.
So let me run you down on my specific thought process.
Without a doubt my first run through of this day would be total ass but if I were to fall asleep and wake up to the same exact day happening all over again, my first reaction would be “I’m abducted by aliens.”
After slowly figuring out that isn’t the case I would try to then try to ask for help from family, friends, law enforcement, the FBI. All of whom will laugh in my face.
Then I would live the equivalent of a year in an endless loop, not totally understanding how to fix my situation. I would try to change the way my day would go, I would change the person I spend it with, I would change every variable I can to fix things, every variable EXCEPT MY ATTITUDE.
I would then live an equivalent of 3 years in a deep deep DEEP rooted depression.
And after all of that, I would finally somehow magically realize what my issue is all along and how exactly to fix it.
The idea of having to keep reliving a single day of your life for an attitude adjustment seems a little harsh to me. I think living life and dealing with everything that life throws at you gives you an attitude adjustment in itself.
That being said, after I escape my never ending hell, I would fall back to my original idea that it was in fact, aliens.
