Harriet came over for dinner and a movie tonight. I told her to bring over something interesting, something to sink our brains into. I specifically instructed her to bring something that Bing would never sit through, a documentary or a chick flick, maybe something similar to Kinsey or Out of Africa.
So she brought over Superbad.
Told me to just shut the fuck up and watch. I was ready to roll my eyes and be just so above it all. I settled in with my diet Dr. Pepper and pretzels.
The movie started.
AT one point I was laughing so hard that I nearly had soda pop come flying out of my nose.
Harriet and I cackled so hard at one scene that I am quite certain that the line "What is that stain on your pants?" is going to send us into hysterics over and over again.
I loved this movie. I laid on the floor laughing like a hyena. I was literally gasping at one point.
I will NEVER watch this with Liv. And I don't even know if I can watch it with Bing. It might ruin my rep for being the serious, sophisticated movie watcher in our house.
But, God...I am learning so very much about myself as I adjust to my summer alone.
I've learned that I like the television off most of the time.
I've learned that I can kill large spiders who slide out of my bathtub drain with my bare hands.
I've learned that I can put gas in my own vehicle.
I've learned that it is okay to listen to music all night long and then start bawling because I will never be able to wear a little black dress into a bar again and get lots of very nice stares. At my age, I am fighting varicose veins, am wobbly in heels and my arm and stomach muscles are no longer firm. If I walk into a bar wearing the clothes I wore when I was 23, I would get long pity filled stares. But, I can still listen to music and remember.
I've learned that I actually like Anderson Cooper and will watch his show at night instead of anything else.
But, what I have learned the most is that I think I have a fifteen year old boy living somewhere inside of me....
Because I swear, I am STILL laughing over this scene. I was laughing just watching him trying to look cool and dance. And then....later...GOOD HELL...I was a goner. Laughing so helplessly and hard that my stomach muscles ached.
So, what's your dirty little secret favorite movie?
