I mentioned on Tuesday that that I had a good amount of blog fodder from this weekend, and I thought I would pop on by with one of those stories.
On Friday, Katie and Phoenix and I went to see The Fault in Our Stars. I’ve read the book and liked it and am kind of into John and Hank Green’s youtube channel, so I wanted to see it. And I learned something at that showing that I wanted to share with you, internet. I am an emotionless robot.
I mean, I guess I didn’t learn this as much as reaffirm this fact.
I had seen this image on Pinterest, and think it kind of represents how a normal person with emotions might react to different Fault in Our Stars scenarios:
But I don’t cry at books and movies. Even when I am more invested than is probably healthy, I never cry. In fact, up until a year ago I didn’t think I was capable of crying. Weeping? Yes. Sobbing uncontrollably? Yes. Plain old crying? Never could do it.
There may be something legitimately wrong with me.
Especially when you consider the other people in the theater with us. There was a teenager who started sobbing uncontrollably half way through the movie BEFORE THE SAD STUFF EVEN STARTED HAPPENING. It was a super small theater, so not only could you hear this girl sobbing, it was also really easy to hear me laughing at her.
Do you cry in movies and books internet? Am I the only person devoid of feelings?
