Three weeks after going through the tragic loss of his mother, my 20 year old cousin came inches from getting killed or seriously injured when a drunk driver crashes into a convenience store where he was getting an iced coffee.
It’s just shear luck he didn’t sustain any injuries whatsoever. Everybody was just so lucky in this situation in general. But my nerves are fucking shot. I lost one of my cousins on the same side of the family when she was 17, and my aunt wasn’t even 50 years old. I’d really just break if it happened again.
- Me: Maybe we'll go see a movie for mother's day instead, since everywhere else might be packed. There's that Disney chimpanzee one you wanted to see at the UA.
- Mom: no, I want to see that new one.
- Me: Which? Dark Shadows, Avengers, Hunger Games?
- Mom: Hunger Games is all nothing but gore and violence. The one with Robert Downey Jr.
- Me: Yeah, that's the Aven-
- Mom: And that gorgeous blond guy.
- Me: Thor?
- Mom: No, that really big muscular guy with the blond hair.
- Me: Chris Hemsworth. Thor.
- Mom: Ok, the Thor. He's so goddam perfect. I could watch him all day. Robert Downey, too.
- Me: Yeah, Downey's always great, and the other guy's the perfect Thor
- Mom: Robbie Jr.! Did you see Sherlock Holmes? Oh my god, he's hot in that. I need a guy like him. He's a real man.
- Me: I'd think so. Flesh and blood and everything.
- Mom: What?
- Me: Uh...uhm...Avengers is pretty violent too, you know.
- Mom: Oh, come on, is it? Bloody?
- Me: Not gory. Lots of ass kicking and suspense. Minor cuts and abrasions. Things you could put a band-aid on....well, maybe a big band-aid
- Mom: Pfff, as long as the asses being kicked are hot like the Thor and Robbie, it can't be gruesome. Let's go buy the tickets.
- Me: ....
- Me: Loki's ass /is/ kinda hot.
