This weekend some friends and I are going to Atlanta to see Tyler Perry’s stage production of “Madea’s Big Happy Family”. I was introduced to the Madea movies a few months ago, and I love the mix of hilarity with a good message.

I came across this clip from the stage version of “Madea Goes to Jail”. While I’m not usually one to take advice from fictional characters, Madea does make some pretty profound (and funny) points regarding relationships. If you don’t want to watch the entire clip, skip ahead to around the five minute mark, when she turns a bit serious and begins discussing the differences between seasonal people and lifetime people.
