“Pretty Woman” is playing on tv right now. Yes, I’m watching it. And I’m liking it.
Part of it is that the movie is a sentimental reminder of my first date. Yes, for some reason, when my first boyfriend asked what movie I wanted to see, I said “Pretty Woman”. I had heard it was a good movie. I didn’t take into account that it was a movie about a hooker and therefore there would be several…um…shall we say uncomfortable scenes for a couple of 17 year olds to be viewing on their first date?
Luckily, we both had a sense of humor about it. By the third sex scene, we were laughing into each other’s shoulder over it all.
You know, no one warns you about these things. No one says “Oh, yes, choose your movie wisely.” There’s a reason why these movies are called chick flicks. Because you should see them with girlfriends, not a first date! The two of us left that theater laughing over how embarrassing it all was. Ah, memories 🙂
