Sorry I’m a little late to the party. Hubs really wanted me to go with him to see The Dark Knight. You know, the new Batman movie? We left the kids with our awesome babysitter and rushed to the theater. We didn’t have time to get snacks or anything. I was hoping it would be like more of a date where we’d share a straw and some Reece’s Pieces. Not tonight. We were seeing a Batman movie, so Hubs was all business. Drive fast. Grab ticket. Climb two steps at-a-time to get to center seats. Step on toes. Grunt for woman (ME) to sit.
Oh, I kid.
The excitement and anticipation almost killed him.
Did you know that The Dark Knight is about 2.5 hours long? I’m not accustomed to sitting that long for a movie — most of the movies we take our four kids to see are less than two hours long. Waaaay less than two hours long. TDK just seemed really long to me. How many monologues can there be? And how does Christian Bale make his voice so scratchy and deep? These are the things I was wondering as we left the theater while my husband was musing about all the reasons that this movie is so true to the old Batman comics. As he spoke, I caught myself just looking at his face and wondering, Who are you and what have you done with my husband? Seriously, how did he keep this geeky side such a secret while we were dating? How can I know a person for five years and miss the fact that he loves Batman and Luke Skywalker with such passion?
Oh, I kid.
He really is 33 different kinds of awesome.
So, thanks for hopping over here. My name is Leslie, and this is my little corner of the tubular interwebs. I love to read good books and write about them. You can find most of my reviews at Discerning Reader, too. I’m a SAHM of FOUR FABULOUS KIDS. Allow me to introduce them with my archives:
