Fact: I hate scary movies. I don’t like when things jump out of places. I don’t like the creepy music. And I always wonder why girls walk into dark rooms with scary music playing. I mean, duh? Either turn on the light or turn your hiney around and
walk run the other way! All of this is also coming from the girl who both hides behind a blanket and plugs her ears when she knows something scary is about to happen. Yeah, I’m pathetic. This memory is a flashback to one of the numerous scary movie watching events in my life.
Remember that one time when…I went on a double date to a movie. I know I’ve already talked about my experiences with double dates and this was another one of those times. The Farmer and I were again coerced into going to a movie with another couple. My friend had already picked out a movie for us to see and each time I casually asked what movie we were going to see, I was ignored. At first, I didn’t think anything of it and thought no one had heard me, but after awhile I started to see the light. They were purposely ignoring my questions.
From all this “ignore Alyssa’s questions” I deduced that we were going to a scary movie. But by that time we were already in the car on the way to the movie theatre. So there was no backing out then. I was stuck.
Turns out we were going to see The Exorcism of Emily Rose. Okay I watched the original Exorcism and it scared the living crap out of me. And it freaked me out to the extreme. I was scared to sleep and scared of the dark. But amazingly I was mostly okay with The Exorcism of Emily Rose. Sure it freaked me out a bit, but I could still sleep fine and I didn't have to hide by my coat or plug my ears the entire movie. Quite impressive for me I assure you.
Fact: I still hate scary movies. Especially now that I live alone. Freaking me out.
