Valentine's Day

So this was our first Valentine's as a married couple! And, since we got married on the fourteenth (which is the best number ever), Valentine's was also our seven month anniversary. Yeah, we're cool like that.

We actually celebrated two Valentine's Days though. Initially we thought that I wouldn't be able to do anything on the actual holiday because it was on a Tuesday (Valentine's on a Tuesday is lame sauce), and I work 8:00 to 3:30 in Provo and have class from 5:00 to 9:20 all the way down in Salt Lake. So yeah, with class AND work... there was no wiggle room for even a mid-day celebration. So, we celebrated the Friday before!

After work and school on Friday, we headed to Cafe Rio. If you've never had Cafe Rio, you've never had amazing, amazing, AMAZING awesome in your mouth. (You should amend that quickly, I suggest.) After that we bought movie tickets for In Time at the dollar theatre next door. And, since the movie didn't start for over an hour, we ran to the nearby Shopko, grabbed some change (the shady dollar theatre apparently won't give you change), and played shooting games until the movie started.

Okay, those hunting games? Really fun. Super fun. Until you lose your mojo, that is. I've always been awful at them, but we had already played the Terminator shooter game, and nothing else was super appealing, so I thought, "Why not?" and agreed to play the hunting game. Again, expecting to repeat my past and suck, as usual. Only I had finally, sort of figured it out. That is, until our second round. Oh man, I choked! It was terrible! It's difficult to aim because I shoot with my right, which means my sight should be in my right eye as well... only... I'm legally blind in that eye. So it's very blurry. Basically, I'd be useless at shooting anything in a zombie apocalypse. So depressing to think about!

In Time was really good, though. We loved it. But it's geeky, it's sci-fi, and it at least has some sort of premise, so of course we like it. Can't complain there!

I did something lame as we were exiting the theatre, though. Within the movie, each person is given twenty-five years to live. Time acts as currency as well as determines your life expectancy. So, you can pay for a cup of coffee, but it'll cost five minutes of your life. You get the gist. So, basically the whole movie is people running around as their about to run out of time and die.

We're waiting in the line to exit the theatre, and there were some old people in the back slowly down the process. No big deal, old people move slow, it's how they do. However, the guy behind us remarked, "Hurry, we don't have a lot of time!" Immediately, I responded saying an annoyed, "Really?"

Um. Yeah. That's when I realized what movie we had just watched. And that he was joking. "I was just joking..." was all the guy said after I snubbed him. Brad and I think that I just squashed his dream of being a comedian because I'm a jerk. So, I'm going to write an apology letter:


Dear Guy-Behind-Me-at-Movie-Theatre,

I'm sorry for being mean to your joke.
It was actually quite funny.
I swear, I'm not lying.

Sincerely,
The Jerk-Girl-in-Front-of-You
