It takes Kyle a ridiculous amount of time to pick out a movie to watch. If you know Kyle, you'll know he loves movies and loves to collect DVDs. We have a few too many, if you ask me, but it is nice to have a seemingly endless supply of movies to fill our weekends when we are too cheap to go out and do something else.
I think its really quite silly that it takes him so long to pick out a movie. "Can't you just pick one?" I think to myself... or sometimes say aloud. If I plan to be present during the movie watching he will often question my level of alertness, claiming that he doesn't want to put on a "really good" one that I've never seen if I'm just going to fall asleep. Sometimes I fall asleep anyway.
After approximately 17 minutes of deliberating, he first settled on "Appaloosa" and then made a last minute change to "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels."
I approve. And yet, another Michael Caine?
Ok so as I am writing this he puts on "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" and just as we get through the opening credits he changes his mind. Now he wants to watch "Ransom."
"Picking out a movie is very key." Kyle says, in response to me laughing at him.
"Because it sets the mood."
He wants to "set the mood" for the night by watching a movie about a kidnapping? Hm.
In my effort to better understand my husband, I tried to put myself "in his shoes," so they say. And you know what? That's exactly what I thought about: shoes. Watching Kyle pick out a movie is very much like my daily challenge of assembling just the right outfit for the day. Not forgetting just the right shoes, of course. Afterall, what a woman wears definitely "sets the mood" for the day, don't you think?
