Current situation: Disinfecting my entire body with 2 1/2 litres of hand sanitizer, because this gross couple on the bus decides to grope each other LITERALLY 2 inches away from my face and then proceeds to fall on me every time we turn a corner. I was d i s g u s t e d.
Do you ever get in one of those moods? The one where you’re borderline depressed? Not quite at the “eat all the foods and use all the tissues and watch all the sad movies” stage, but you’re edging dangerously close to that cliff and want to back the f up. That was me the other day. But I really wanted to watch a movie! Trouble is, basically every movie, whether its a comedy or action or cartoon, has some sort of ‘love/relationship’ aspect. And a borderline sad girl with a pantry full of cookies watching anything to do with love is NOT a good combination.
So I settled on a Saw marathon. A torture/horror movie would be the perfect pick!! I mean, you could be stuck in one of those traps…so really, life could be a lot worse. So I grab a cup of tea and get super pumped for my night of evil maniacs and a whole lot of blood.
5 minutes into the movie…
AHHH WTF THIS IS A METAPHOR FOR MY LIFE!!! OH MY GOD!!! THE TRAP IS MY RELATIONSHIP AND I CAN ONLY ESCAPE IF I TORTURE MYSELF!!! BUT IF I DON’T LEAVE I’LL DIE!!! OH MY GOD!! THE PHYSICAL PAIN/TORTURE REPRESENTS MY EMOTIONAL PAIN/TORTURE!!! *starts bawling uncontrollably*
I knew Saw was a horror film, little did I know my psychopathic female mind would turn it into an emotional horror film. Saw had jumped out from behind a tree, picked me up and tossed me right over that emotional cliff into the pits of despair!! The thing I was most mad about? WHAT MOVIE AM I GOING TO WATCH NOW?! If Saw can’t do the trick, what will?!!??!
And now here I am, frustrated to my very core, because all I want to do is watch a movie and walk away happier than before. Is that so much to ask?!
Some one help a girl out here, what are your go-to movie choices for when you need a little rescuing?
ps: To my international viewers/followers! I see you!! Sending so much love to y’all! xxx
