I've been so busy doing summer activities/boycotting real life that I forgot I even owned a computer. Among other things, I saw the new movie, Bridesmaids, and it was absolutely hysterical. The crowd was perfect for people watching. It was so crowded they actually made an announcement to encourage the edge-hogs to shift seats and make more room.
We arrived at the theater, parked, and began making our way in while anxiously chit-chating over the upcoming comedy. All of a sudden, I could feel and hear somebody right behind us. Out of nowhere, this ghost of a guy was right on our tail. I could feel him towering over me, looking down on my sparky headband. One too many CSI episodes implied this completely wrong. He was so close to us I instinctively tightened the grip on my purse and tried to find his reflection and/or profile off the nearby cars in the parking lot. The glare from the late evening sun ruined this strategy.
His stride was so in sync with mine I went into a full-fledged panic attack in about 12 seconds flat. At this point I was looking for an escape route. I was playing tetris in my mind using the nearby cars to plan my getaway. As I got less and less talkative I began shooting knowing glances to my clueless friends and the worry quickly spread among us. To say we were speed walking would be an understatement.
Finally we reached the door and as he reached out to hold it open for us, we all basically dived out of the way thinking one of us was sure to be pistol whipped. Finally, got a good shot of the perpetrator: lanky, four-eyed and completely lost. Typical. No wonder he came out of nowhere in the parking lot, his long ass legs were probably twice the length of mine (so jealous).
The guy was totally harmless. I actually ended up feeling bad for him because I think he got stood up and was only walking so fast because he was excited. Anyway, we got our tickets and made ourselves sick off crunchy ass candy, loud popcorn and slurppy diet soda. The movie was very funny - I recommend it! PS - I'm kind of obsessed with this salmon color right now. Matches my background perfectly, no?!
