NOTHING IN MAN IS MORE SERIOUS THAN HIS SENSE OF HUMOR; IT IS A SIGN THAT HE WANTS ALL THE TRUTH --Mark Van Doren
This weekend, I was once again presented with startling evidence that nobody thinks I'm as funny as I do.
On Friday, three friends and I met for drinks and then went to see the Shopaholic movie. (BTW: Isla Fisher may be the funniest and most adorable person on earth. LOVE HER! WANT TO BE HER!) But, I digest.
Just before the coming attractions started, four young girls, around age 12 or 13, came in and sat 3 rows in front of us. They were giggling and rustling around and finding places to stash their bags. Just before they all settled in, one of them turned around, hand on hip in that asymmetric defiant stance that teenagers do so well. "This row is only for cool girls" she announced to the rest of the theater. Then she turned around and sat down while the rest of her friends shrieked and laughed.
J and I looked at each other, and without a word, we scampered down the aisle three rows. Taking the seats next to the four girls, I looked over and said: "Hey! I heard that this is where the cool girls sit." And J added: "We got carded tonight. How cool is that?"
Needless to say, we were met with four pairs of eyes giving us the look usually reserved for their moms that clearly said: LAME! And we slunk back to our seats.
Well, at least J and I laugh about it.
