here I am



I was a witness to a high school student’s sociology experiment.  I’m sure I was.  Because, even nowadays (listen to me, sounding like an old-timer!) kids know better than to answer six – yes, SIX – calls during a movie in a theater.  And because no matter WHAT kind of a freaky relationship she was in, no high school girlfriend would sit idly by while her date/boyfriend answered SIX cell calls during a movie without at least poking him or giving him a look.  I know it was a soc project.  When I was in soc class, we had to break a social norm and write about peoples’ reactions.  That’s what this kid was doing, right?

    I dunno… I went to a movie once and this guy (OLDER guy) kept getting a phone call. He would just sit there and let it ring and ring and ring and then sometimes he would pick it up and talk. Then hang up and a few minutes later he would get another call. it was insane.

    and by older i don’t mean old old. i mean old enough to know better and young enough to not be senile.

    Boy, I hope you’re right. I completely gave up going to the movies about 2 years ago. Just couldn’t take it. With the technology no-a-days, you can get as good sound and picture with the same money some people spend on movies in a year (or less). I’ve been to about 2 movies in the last two years and regretted it both times.
