This is just fun. First of all, it is rare. Secondly, undoubtedly one or the other of us has been saving up about 16,000 important tasks (bill paying, diaper-code entering, blog-stalking, etc.) that we need to perform on the computer for when we actually get a chance to sit down. So generally at least one of us is not paying full attention. This leads to a lot of frustrated answering of tedious questions by the person who is actually following the movie plot. Okay, let’s be honest. About 1% of the time it’s my husband who has trouble following (Jane Eyre can throw any red-blooded male for a loop). The rest of the time, it’s Yours Truly popping out deal-breaker inquiries (if he stays with me after these cringe-worthy questions, it’s obvious he’s in it for the long-haul) such as “Why can’t they just be friends?” (in reference to Dr. X and Magneto) and my favorite, “Is this how 007 started?” (when watching Captain America). I know, feel bad for him.
