A few weeks ago, the guy I am dating (I use that term so loosely...in fact...let's call it friending...and I even use that term loosely...so let's just say this guy I know...that's better) asked me to go see the Anchorman II movie. This is by far his favorite movie. He references it all the time and has been talking about the sequel for all of the months I've known him.
But he asked me last minute and I couldn't go (I've never seen the first one though so I wasn't bent out of shape not to see the sequel).
Last weekend I asked him how the Anchorman II movie was?
His response, "I didn't go. I'll just watch it on blue ray when it comes out."
I was all, what-huh-why? It's your favorite movie! Why didn't you go?
He said he didn't have anyone to go with.
To which I replied, "Why didn't you just go by yourself, though?"
And then he made the face. The most disgusted and horrified face I've ever seen. He was all, OMG I would NEVER EVER go to a movie by myself!!! NEVER! And then more of the face.
I started giggling a little. I just thought it was the oddest reaction ever given that at the time we were walking out of a movie where we didn't talk, touch, hold hands or anything else that required a buddy. I was like, well I would have just gone by myself.
More of his horrified face and comments.
I then said I think it's normal to go to a movie alone. I mean, what's wrong with it? You don't talk to anyone anyway.
He then went into how it was soooo weird and I was so weird and he would never ever ever do that and on and on and on. Plus...you know...more of the face.
In the car he then went on and on about how he's going home to see mommy (my words...not his) yet again this coming weekend and the one after that (despite the fact that he was just home for three straight weeks). He has no issues about driving across the state at least two weekends a month to cuddle his mommy but sitting in a dark movie theater to watch your favorite movie is weird. Um...OK.
So...you can see why this isn't going anywhere.
But do answer me this. Do you ever go to the movies alone? And if not, do you agree that it's weird? I really want the truth here because I think it's perfectly normal to go by yourself if you really want to see something. But perhaps I'm uninformed...
