Remember that one time when…Going to what movie?

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.
