Suffering From Temporary Stupidity

Pay attention, People, because this may be the only time I will publicly admit that I MAY have fucked up. I MAY have done something unsavory. In the words of Inigo Montoya- “Let me sum up.”

You all may have heard of a little movie that came out this weekend entitle  The Hunger Games. I was ecstatic about this fact, because I have read all the books and found them to be quite amazing. So when I found out that the movie version was coming out at the end of March, I told my Rockstar that I was going to see it.

I would like to point out here that when I told him this, I implied that he should go with me.

Anyhoo, as I was driving to church yesterday, the sudden urge came over me that I simply MUST go see The Hunger Games this week. Since I actually have multiple nights home with my Rockstar this week, I text him to make sure that he was still unwilling to expose himself to this young adult epic. I let him know that if he refused to go with me, I was planning on going after church, to the theatre of my past, where it was less likely that I was to be trampled by insane teens. He told me to go alone.

Here is the Thing. I do not mind going to movies alone. In some ways, I prefer it. I can sit where I want, I can eat as much candy as I want without sharing, and I can switch spots when the other movie goers are obnoxiously chomping their popcorns too loudly near me. However, if I am offering to pay, and I am in a relationship, and he has nothing better to do than sit in a dark theatre with me- he better fucking go.

I would also like to point out that this was one of the same flaws my ex husband had. I went to ALL the midnight showings of the Harry Potter films BY MYSELF, and numerous other movies ALONE because my ex “wasn’t interested” in them.

I’m sorry, maybe it is my histrionic personality  clouding my judgement, but I translate that as “I do not want to spend time with you bad enough to go sit through a movie I don’t want to see just to be with you.”

This is the part where I MAY have fucked up.

I sent him a text stating that my ex used to make me go to movies alone, and that I thought I had upgraded from him.

I didn’t hear from him for the rest of the day. In fact, when I got home, I didn’t hear from him either. But honestly, I had nothing to say to him at that point.

The plan for this morning was that I was to take my Rockstar’s Daughter to school. I woke up intending to do just that, and found that my Rockstar was NOT at work. I asked what he was doing home and he said he was going to take his daughter to school because he couldn’t just sit at work and wonder if I had woken up to do so.

I have never EVER not woken up on the morning I am to take her to school. And I have never EVER gotten her there late.

I have consulted with unnamed sources, and it seems the reference to my ex in comparison with my Rockstar MAY have caused a riff.

When this was pointed out to me, my honest thoughts were, “Oh jesus fuck. Is he really going to be a fucking crotch dog over that shit? Maybe he should have just gone to the fucking movie with me then. I’m not apologizing.”

And so now I have to sit here for the next ten hours wondering if my night is going to be shit because of my stupid big mouth. Fuck.

  1. Bwuahahahahahahaha a glitter fart! I’m still giggling. You did not fuck up love. He’s an overexaggerated two year old. This is the behavior I deal with every day at work….cept my kids are more well behaved. Jesus. Also, I would have gone to the movie with you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love the Trilogy and would have loved to have sit next to you and judged the too loud popcorn butt munchers.

  2. If I’m REALLY not interested in a movie, I’d rather not go. I don’t see the point in going to a movie “to be with” someone. All you do is sit quietly and stare at the screen. And maybe eat. Or whisper once or twice. But it’s not quality time. And I definitely wouldn’t want GF to come with me to a movie she is against seeing. Now, movies that I’m lukewarm about, I’ll sit through. But not one I REALLY don’t wanna see when I could be cooking dinner for when she gets home.

    Thing is, that doesn’t mean you’re irrational, or that I am. People are just different. Rockstar probably just doesn’t get the importance of it to you. For him, something’s that’s just not that big of a deal leading to him being compared to the ex is probably killer.

    That said, he’ll probably cool off. But you shd def explain how you feel about spending time together. He doesn’t get it.

  3. Sparklebumps, you are perfect in my eyes. You didn’t fuck up, it was just a…um…glitter fart? Ok, well…you might have fucked up…but only a little…and the point is…you’re still awesome. We are all entitled to perusing our past when our present starts to remind us of it.

    • “You are perfect in my eyes.” If only I could get my Rockstar to say that. But you’re the next best thing! 😉 Can perfect people really fuck up? I don’t think so….

  4. Two wrongs won’t make it right.
    Install a censor. There’s a difference between TRUTH and TACT.
    After the ex-text, he just threw the tantrum back.
    Other than that, I don’t know what to suggest. But, unless somebody cools down, there might be a lonely bed and a lumpy couch.

  5. Ok so I’m a guy, (checking) yep I’m a guy.
    I understand that you wanted to go to the movie and would have preferred for him to accompany you. I can also believe he may not have wanted to go for what ever reason he had. But it did become more then just an adventure to the movie theater once the ex was mentioned. THIS IS ONLY MY PERSONAL OPINION. It sounds almost like this morning not that he Didnt have faith in you waking up, but more as a ( don’t take this wrong) temper tantrum. There may be more there under the surface then you might think. And that goes both ways. Hang in there. I’m sure youll get a sign for the next step.

  6. He should have gone to the movie with you. In fact, it should have been his idea and he should have bought you dinner, too. You didn’t fuck up … you made a point.
