Boys….both Broad “A” and I are surrounded by boys. I have a husband, a son and a male dog, while she has 2 sons, a male dog and a boyfriend. For me this means that the quorum almost always votes for seeing action movies and I love my chick flicks. These past 32 years have taught me one thing – I CAN’T WIN when it comes to the movies, so rather than try to beat ’em…I’ll join ’em. As a result, I’ve come to really enjoy certain genres that I’d never have paid the price of admission for and The Avengers is one that I’m actually looking forward to seeing.
It’s all in the perspective I suppose…especially when I get to see Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans and Mark Ruffalo showing some muscle. I can assure you that the conversation when we all walk out of the theater will be truly divided. My guys will be talking action, and effects and I’ll be talking handsome and hunky.
I just wish I had a friend to take along with me, because we’d head to Starbucks and enjoy a latte after a movie like this for some serious girl-talk.
