Last night was date night . After a long , long time we finally got to go out together and watch a movie in a real, live movie theater . Yeah , it is a big deal especially since it has almost been a year since I last went out to a movie theater .
Ashwin was all set on resigning himself to watching a chick flick when I told him I wanted to watch The Avengers . I was actually surprised that he was surprised ! Funny . It just goes to show you that you never really know every single thing about your spouse !
Well truth is , I have always loved superheroes ! Remember I told you long ago that I my first exposure to reading was comic books ? I also grew up in a campus where most of my friends were boys . My cousin Sumodh and I shared our love for superheroes and as kids would even turn a regular game of tag into superman & supergirl versus Lex Luthor ! ( the villains were usually our younger cousins )
So having the Iron Man , The Hulk , Captain America , Thor , The Hawk and The Black Widow in one 3D movie was irresistible . The perfect date night! Ashwin got to see a totally different side of me . He is usually used to see me close my eyes or turn away as fight scenes come up on screen or even have tears rolling down my eyes for sentimental scenes . Last night, he got to see me whistling and hooting as I rooted for my superheroes .
At the end of the night , the world was saved from alien invasion , our tummies were full of popcorn and pepsi, and another shared passion was discovered after almost a decade of knowing each other!
My favorite superhero of the night? Iron Man.
My favorite superhero of all time? Spiderman
One comic book hero I am waiting to see a good movie on? The Phantom.
(yes , I know there is a movie on the phantom, but it is rather silly, don't you think? )
