On Halloween, my BFF Doc & I headed off to dinner and a movie. We decided to be daring, and play like we were the age we felt, and not the 30-somethings we really are and go see Paranormal Activity. You've heard of that movie right? About a young couple, living in a home where they set up cameras to document the "paranormal" happenings in their home that are frightening them? Well, why I thought it would be a good idea, I don't know. We both kind of psyched ourselves out to begin with, and then once we were all settled in, Doc turned to me and said, "I really don't feel real great." I kind of laughed it off, trying to also put on a brave face. It only got worse from there.
The theater was relatively full, and we were blocked in. I was at first thankful for that, as it eliminated the scary monsters that might tap me on the shoulder during the film. :) As the film began, we noticed that the camera was supposedly being run by the couple, which meant they bounced around...a lot. First, we both got dizzy, then we both started to get absolutely GREEN around the gills (so to speak) from MOTION SICKNESS. Yes, you heard it. We ended up getting up, 35 minutes into the film, totally not scared, but nauseous.
So there you have it. I guess it's not that we get to be chickens as we get older, but that our bodies either betray us with a little motion sickness or maybe an inability to run from spooky things like we once did? LOL.
That was my Halloween night. How was did your's turn out? :)
