I caught a cold.
I’ll let that soak in for a second so you can get all sympathetic and shit. Yea, it sucks to be me. I am leaking from my face a lot. Sometimes I cough.
Deathly syndromes aside, I have a profound aversion to sitting at home and doing nothing on a Friday night. I wasn’t looking to go to a club, I just didn’t want to sit at home on my sorry ass, surrounded by Mount Snot-Tissues, crying at an infomercial, trying to taste the half-melted popsicle I found at the back of my freezer. So I decided to do what lots of regular folk do on a Friday night: go to the movies. (I hear your gasps. Oh the tameness! What a yawnfest! Is she *that* girl?) I beg your pardon, but if you recall, I’m sick. See above for details of my suffering.
So, to the movies I went. But, if you’re anything like me, a movie isn’t a movie without a little booze. Why would I want to sit still for 2 hours on a Friday night if it doesn’t involve a drink in my hand? Exactly. You can’t think of a reason either. So, for those of you who do this often, or pretend you don’t but we all know where you go on Tuesday afternoons, this is a list you can show your friends who judge you or think you have “a problem.” And, to the rest of you drunk-at-the-movies virgins, please find below the reasons you should start adding flask’o’ hooch to your purse/fanny pack before heading over to the ol’ cinema.
Reasons to drink in a movie theater
- It makes the softdrinks taste a lot better.
- If you bring your own flask, paying $6 for a coke doesn’t seem like such a rip off when you drink its boozy glory.
- No one around you knows you’re drinking. So it’s like having your very own secret members-only club. In your mouth.
- It makes even semi-unattractive actors attractive. Rawr.
- Booze is great with popcorn.
- If there’s a
bearablegood soundtrack, you’ll really appreciate it. (Sing a little? Dance maybe?)
- When the movie is over and
mostall of the people have left, you have your very own stage to stripdance on.
In conclusion, drink in movie theaters, folks. Just maybe not if you’re with your kids. Actually, scratch that. Have you seen some of these new children’s movies they’re coming out with? Fuck if I wouldn’t need to be wasted to sit through that shit. Drink up.
