Quickly – Comfort #4000HE

Posted on February 6, 2011


There is this first date getting in the way of his theater trip. It is not even his first date but that of two strangers.  They are taking things slow.  First they diplomatically choose a film about two star struck lovers that fight off lake monsters, then he is stuck behind them as they barter over snacks, whether they should eat healthy or get dangerous with the Twizzlers and the nachos. What is wrong with people, he wonders, that they take everything so slowly. He wants to see the couple set on fire, make them move more quickly.  He wants Whoppers and a cherry Coke.  He wants to see this film about villains and to fall asleep during the slow parts.
