Dinner and a Movie

I went out on a date tonight. With my Mom and Dad. My Mom used me as leverage to go see I Am Legend, since my Dad didn’t want to see it. My Dad doesn’t care to to see movies where things jump out at you. Mom likes Will Smith. I didn’t care one way or the other, since I was not paying for this outing, and furthermore, in the very least, it was not the sequel to National Treasure.

The reason why my Mom needs backup to pull my Dad into a movie such as I Am Legend, where Things Jump Out At You, is that, to this day, we have not let him live down the three feet he jumped out of his seat when the ice creature got Luke on Planet Hoth.


  1. NO, NO, NO!!! It was when Harry jumped out in the movie, Harry and the Henderson’s. I think he was on the roof of the family car and he popped his head down on the windshield. Tell dad to suck it up.

  2. Yes, that was an ADDITIONAL jumping incident. Empire Strikes Back was in theaters in 1980. You were one year old.

  3. You have to admit that ice creature was pretty scary!!
