It was our first date and we decided to watch a movie.
Movies weren’t awkward. There were no pressures to keep the conversation going. So, we bought popcorn, 2 brownies and 2 large cold drinks. Thank god he didn’t like sharing either. Mid way through the movie, popcorn came flying at me. Throughout the otherwise boring movie, I only ate the popcorn that he threw at me. Something told him, I would find it funny and I did. A lot changed in our lives, but our little popcorn routine stuck around. It felt intimate to me.
When friends came to watch movies with us, they called us juvenile. But I found it romantic, back then and even now.
