I went to the movies last night to see "Julie and Julia" - totally relatable (the love of cooking part) and such a feel-good film. (Thank goodness it was the "Original Version" - as you know I'm studying in France, and feared watching a dubbed Meryl!)
I was supposed to go and see the film with a friend, but at the last minute she cancelled and couldn't come. I didn't mind, and didn't consider changing my plans as I've wanted to see the film for a long time.
"Alone," I smiled back happily.
She truly looked shocked - as if I had just grown a horn in the middle of my forehead. What a reaction! Had she never experienced the joy of going to the movies alone?
Has anyone else recieved this aghast reaction when going to see a movie tout seul?
