Anyway, as an adult, and more specifically - a father, I have fallen into the nasty habit of not finishing movies. My wife is frequently a co-conspirator in this dilemma.
It goes like this:
She wants to watch a movie, but not a "boy-movie" (which should read as all genres other than rom-coms and dramas with lead female characters). Basic requirements:
- Something funny.
- Can't..absolutely can't have subtitles.
- Can't have robots.
- Or be in space.
- Scary? No. Don't even ask.
- Can't be part of a trilogy.
What do you do? Finish the movie and then have to watch the second half again? Or stop and play Xbox or watch Sportscenter? I usually just call it.
Now, don't get me wrong - it's not all her. Lately, I fall asleep. My son wakes up. Something happens and the whole train is derailed. Here are some one or both of us are working on for various reasons...
|I keep falling asleep.|
|100% solo mission.|
|She went out quickly.|
|We both fell asleep.|
