Evan and I went to see “Music and Lyrics” last weekend. By the time we got a parking spot in downtown San Mateo, the theater was pretty crowded. A nice teenage couple shifted seats so that we could sit with them in the back row of the movie theater.
What I found most amusing from our movie going experience, however, was not the movie itself, it was watching Evan squirm as the teenage couple next to him “made out” in quite a slurping manner for the majority of the movie. Now this was not entirely surprising to me, because they were a teenage couple and they were sitting in the very back of the movie theater, but Evan was more than horrified.
“I can’t believe that they would waste $20 on movie tickets if all they were going to do was make out the entire time,” Evan says on the drive home, as I continue to chuckle about Evan’s unfortunate seat in the theater.
I’m beginning to think that my husband is either 1) cheap or 2) never was a teenage boy as I believe that most teenagers that go to a movie with a date and didn’t end up kissing would be more likely to think that the $20 was a waste of money than those that do.
