So Friday night, Kyle and I ate dinner at his parents’ house. They made a delicious meal (as per usual)!
After dinner, Kyle and I wanted to go to a movie: Captain Phillips
It got really good reviews, and let’s be honest- it’s pretty hard to go wrong with a Tom Hanks movie.
Captain Phillips is a multi-layered examination of the 2009 hijacking of the U.S. container ship Maersk Alabama by a crew of Somali pirates.
We drove to the theatre and got settled in. I brought movie candy from home (shhhhh) because I refuse to spend $5+ on a half a box of candy. you know how inside the box has candy in a plastic wrapper that only fills the box half way??? who does that?? dentists, that’s who.
We got about 15 minutes in to the film and I started to feel nauseous. I couldn’t tell if it was food related or what, but I decided to tough it out and maybe it would go away. <–cause that happens all the time…
About 30 minutes in to the movie, I must have looked like I wasn’t feeling so hot because Kyle asked if I was okay. I said I felt nauseous but I was fine. Kyle whispered “Let’s go” and I said “No, I’m fine.” He ignored me and got up to leave, so we left. Thank goodness we were sitting in the aisle seats.
It helps to have a boyfriend who is as stubborn as you, but looks out for you.
We got out of the theatre and I had to sit down cause I thought I was going to blow chunks. After resting for a few minutes, we went to customer service and got our movie vouchers (to come back at a later time).
Kyle took care of me when we got to my house and I felt better by the time I was going to go to bed.
Moral of the story: I get seasick when watching other people at sea.
I knew that I have bad motion sickness, but I didn’t think I was that much of a pansy. I guess we need to sit further back next time…or take Dramamine.
Oh and one last random fact: My arms are so sore from Saturday’s workout that it hurts to put on deodorant. don’t worry, i did.
Have any embarrassing movie stories?
