365 Days Ago

by chinwhat at 3:43 p.m.
TheGF and i have now officially been going out for one year and i'm pretty happy about that especially since it almost didn't happen. TheGF only told me last month that on our date a year ago, she wasn't impressed with something I had done.

Flashback to Jan08: Due to strong word of mouth, we went to go see Juno at the Cineplex theatre down on Winston & Dundas. It was a thursday night and the movie had already been out for a few weeks, so the theatre was pretty empty. Lots of seats to choose from.

We decided to sit up by the second last row since it was in the middle of the theatre. Perfect viewing. Eventually a group of teenagers came in and sat in the row behind us. I'd guess 14 or 15 years old. Eight of them or so. Half boys, half girls.

... and kids being the kids they are, they were a little rowdy and hyper. You know, boys acting a certain way to impress the girls. Girls giggling a certain way to attract the boys. This was all going down during the previews and i knew if i didn't put an end to this shit, it'd be going on throughout the movie - which i really hate! Plus i had to impress this girl i was with!

I look back at one of the louder boys and firmly say in the most passive-aggressive tone i could muster: "Yo, shut the fuck up!" Pretty firm enough to get the kids to be quiet and macho enough to impress my date. I didn't exactly pull an Opposite George Costanza but they were still a little shocked. One of the other guys didn't know how to respond except by nervously repeating "uh, yeah, 'shut the fuck up'" to the other guys.

Flash forward to a month ago when TheGF and I were talking about that night. She mentioned how VERY unimpressed she was with my comment/action. "I thought you were a nice guy, and then you did that! I was sooo unimpressed! Like, 'who is this guy?!'"

Good thing my game was on point for the rest of the night (maybe i'll write about that some time) because if the date ended right after the movie, who knows what would've happened to us, laugh.
