“Good Movie, Hard to Follow”

Those are my dad’s infamous words after countlessly falling asleep during a movie. I seem to have followed in his footsteps.

Seriously, how many times do I have to watch a movie these days to actually finish it from start to finish? This weekend it took me 3 times to get to the end of Captain America. I had already seen it, so it wasn’t as bad, but still. So annoying. And that’s probably about the norm for most other movies I try to watch! Doesn’t matter what it is..if it is started past 5:00 p.m. there’s pretty much no hope.

Inner dialogue, “This movie is great!…Wide awake…getting a little sleepy..I’m still good, still into the movie!…eyes droop for a second…I can still do th..zoooooooonk.”


I can try to blame it on being a mom as it has gotten worse since then, but I’ve always done it!

  1. This made me laugh! Can so relate! Most Friday nights I come home and crash on the couch. I turn on Dateline or 20/20 and watch the beginning of those cheating husband probably murdered his wife episodes, but I never see the end because I always fall asleep!
