went to see this movie. waited outside for my friend to arrive.

just then, a loud group of people came out, and one said to the others,

‘i cannot believe that ____________ happened! he ____________! and _______!’

i could not believe they didn’t think about the other people sharing their space, waiting to go in and see the film and wanting all of the roller coaster ups and downs and surprises that came with it. they had revealed the ending of the movie to us. all i wanted was to take back that moment and block my ears and just say, ‘la,la,la,la,la,la,la………..’

  1. Once again, outside the box … equipped with joy and creativity … Good post for me to read, right in the midst of Christmas: a reminder to lighten up, don’t analyze so much, and when the curb balls come, make … limeade? Peace and wonderous Yuletide to you and the fam. T

  4. Ha.This has happened a few times to me, but that last incident was the most annoying because it was some gal bopping down the street talking loudly on her phone about the preview screening of Gravity she saw and yes, she game away the spoiler before the film had even officially opened.

    My reaction was something like this (inside my head, of course):

    Of course, she happened to stop right in front of me at a traffic light, babble away… THEN look around to check and see if someone was around. I was glaring at her and she ended up quickly ending her call and dashing (well, as fast as one can dash in expensive spike heels) across the street. Now, I’d not have laid a finger on her at all, but I hope she remembers that look the next time she’s lucky enough to score a preview seat, grrrrr…
