The other day I air-popped some popcorn and sat down on my couch to watch a movie on my big ‘ol television, and I started to wonder… are people still going to movie theaters?
Is that still something people do, or do we instead sit at home with our surround sound, hd television, fancy tv stand that keeps all our nasty dvd players, video game consoles, etc. out of sight, and of COURSE our super sweet pause button.
You see, I think the pause button is what makes my couch beat the movie theater. Movies are long, I like to drink lemonade… and if I’m going to pay $11.00 a ticket, then the last thing I want to do is miss part of it while I run to the bathroom. You know the run, right? The backward pedal out of the movie theater, the quick sprint down the hall to find the ladies room, (Why is my theater always at the other end of the building?) and the lightning quick pee followed up by a hand washing so fast that you probably shouldn’t be sticking your hands back in that jumbo tub o popcorn you’re sharing with your man.
Well, that’s the thing… with the pause button you have none of that! AND– if you miss what some super important character said, and it’s more than obvious those two seconds are what the entire story’s pivoting on–then all you have to do is rewind it and watch it again!~
Oh, plus… if it’s really boring, you can always watch the latest episode of vampire diaries.
