Okay so I am the only person in my family who enjoys Friday the 13ths and Halloween. I have no idea where I get it from. I enjoy watching scary movies and going to haunted houses. Yes I’m very aware of how weird I am. Sometimes it is just fun to be scared. Well when it’s not warranted at least.
Anyway, today my new roommate and I went to the video store to rent some scary movies for tomorrow. I was already on a high from my coffee I had and was pretty freakin excited! So we are browsing through all the movies and not a whole lot is catching our eye. There’s a lot of scary movies that were released recently, but nothing that we really wanted to see. All of them were all exorcist and evil spirit films. Most people who know me know I don’t do well with ghosts. That’s something that doesn’t scare me in the fun way. What I wanted was a gory, crazy, psycho, ax murderer on the loose kind of a scare. We just were having no luck. And then… I spotted it. A movie that looked like it was what we needed. I read the back and there it was… Another exorcist movie. Ahhh the horror!!!!! Irritated, I slam the cover down and say “What is with all of these stupid ghost and exorcism movies?! Is it too much to ask for people to just kill each other!!!”
Let that just sink in for a moment….
Yeah, that definitely came out wrong. But I didn’t realize it until I saw some old man looking at me in horror. Then I finally thought about it, realized what I had just said, and then I could not stop laughing. I mean here I am looking for horror movies and yelling about people killing each other like some crazy person. Which I’m not. Obviously.
Needless to say that man got out of there as quick as he could and we got a pretty good laugh. I’m excited to order Chinese food while watching the three films we were able to finally pick out. Without any lives lost of course.
The lesson here is don’t go on a mass hunt for horror films while on a caffeine high. You might end up yelling things that could possibly peg you for a psycho killer.
Have a wonderful Friday the 13th everyone! I know I will!!
