It was like straight out of a fairytale.
The fair maiden sleeps away off in a far away land.
Except this is not a fairytale and I am not the fair maiden. This is reality and this is me.
Let me explain.
Last night I went to go see Avatar in 3D.
I was so stoked because I had heard from so many people that I would love it and how fun that it's in 3D.
Jill and I went to the 9:55pm movie. BIG mistake.
We're stoked for the movie.
But this is where it starts getting fuzzy!
The lights dim, the crowd hushes with anticipation. The movie begins and I think okay, this is going to be great...
And somewhere in between all that, I was transported into a classic case of Sleeping Beauty.
Yes, I totally fell asleep through Avatar people. Slept through the intense parts and through most of the 3D goodness.
I did wake up for some parts, and the 3D effects were amazing (from what I saw, ha). I remember the popcorn being great, I possibly remember how the coke went down so smoothly like a calm river. I remember thinking to myself multiple times how long have I been asleep? What did I miss?
I was hoping and praying that I was hidden behind my 3D glasses and that Jill couldn't tell I was sleeping.
We got a good laugh out of it though because it's not unusual for me to fall asleep at movies at home with her that we watch. But I totally thought I could do this.
So I'm out $13.50 and was left with a hurt tummy from the popcorn and we didn't even get to keep the 3D glasses.
And need another date with Avatar, because apparently I heard it was really good.
So I say all this to say you do not want to see a movie with me. I totally suck at this.
But put in Sleeping Beauty, and I am totally game!!
