grown man wearing 3d glassesMy husband is a movie reviewer.  I know, you’re jealous, but there’s more.  He gets to see movies for free before they come out. Mind = blown.

It’s a pretty sweet gig and yet another reason he’s such a catch. Unfortunately for him, I don’t really like movies, and the only reason I go is (1) because I want to stuff my face with buttery popcorn and/or (2) I get to see Ryan Gosling without a shirt.  A combination of (1) and (2) is perfect.

(As a side note, engaging in (1) above usually leads to #2…if you know what I mean.)

Anyway, last night my husband went to the screening of Iron Man 3.  Yeah, he’s a big deal.  Sure, it was on our wedding anniversary, but considering I was at home coughing up part of my lung and gasping for air, I didn’t mind he went to the movie.

More oxygen in the house for me.

Because I’m an amazingly supportive wife (and because I wanted to avoid “sexy time”), I asked him about the movie and if he liked it.

Before he answered, I started a coughing fit of epic proportions.  It wasn’t just a few lame coughs.  When I do something, I go all out.  It was a “I think I might vomit and my head might explode” kind of coughing fit.

You totally know what I’m talking about.

As soon as the coughing tapered off, my husband and I engaged in the following conversation.

Matt:  “I got some really cool Iron Man 3d glasses at the movie that I get to keep forever.”

(As if I thought they would only allow him to take them home for the weekend.)

The coveted "classic colors" glasses.

The coveted “classic colors” glasses.

Lisa:  “When will you ever use those 3d glasses?”

Matt:  “Um, I will use them when I go to see 3d movies, duh.” he said, as if I asked the dumbest question in the world, and not as if he was an adult overly excited about free 3d glasses.

Lisa: “Don’t theaters give you 3d glasses for free whenever you go to a 3d movie?” I asked, once again questioning why I married this guy.

Matt: “Yeah, but the ones they give you aren’t cool.  These are cool.  I got to pick mine out of 6 choices.”

Lisa:  “They seriously had 6 different options of Iron Man 3d glasses?” I questioned, all of a sudden understanding where our simple dog, Max, got his “simpleness.”

Matt:  “Heck yeah they had 6 different kinds.  I picked the classic colors,” he responded, as if anyone who picked anything other than the classic colors option was a stupid piece of crap.

Lisa:  “Did you have to rifle through bins to find the one you wanted?  Did you try them on to see which one looked best like you do at Walmart?  Were there mirrors or did you have to take selfies on your phone to see how you looked in each pair?”

I asked these tough questions because I could picture my husband picking through a cardboard box looking for “classic colors” and yelling “Sa-wheat!” when he found them.

Matt:  “No.  I didn’t have to look around.  I knew I wanted classic colors,” he said in a kind of quiet voice.

Although he was soft spoken about this, his tone suggested his behavior was the most logical thing in the world…you know…the most logical thing for a grown man to already have it figured out which pair of free 3d glasses he wanted to use so he could watch a free movie about a comic book character.

Yup.  Totally logical.

Happy anniversary to my wonderful husband! Why he puts up with my abuse, I will never know.

He had his regular glasses on before I took this picture and I walked over and put the Iron Man ones on over his glasses to which he responded "Don't do that, it will look stupid." Yes, because a grown man eating a donut dunked in milk while wearing Iron Man 3d glasses isn't ridiculous enough.

26 Thoughts on “Iron Man 3 and an exciting freebie

  1. I just read through this entire post waiting for you to say, “YOU GET IRON MAN GLASSES. AND YOU GET IRON MAN GLASSES! EVERY-ONE-GETS-IRON-MAN-GLASSES.”

    Needless to say I’m incredibly disappointed.

  2. Do you know how freaking jealous I am of him right now??? My husband is going on Friday without me. I think he’s on to me and the whole Robert Downey Jr thing…

  3. Hey there! I found you through the Disfunction Junction Blog Hop. Great blog! I laughed out loud! Looking forward to read more!

    • Aw, I’m so glad you enjoyed my post! I appreciate you reading and commenting. Thanks for stopping by. Hopefully I can be your “go to” for when you want to laugh out loud…or really…if you just want to make fun of my life. 🙂

  4. Awesomely hilarious like always! omg, I can never leave your blog without going into some kind of weird laughing fit, glad I’m not in starbucks! 🙂 Also the oprah comment ^ haha

    • I’m SO glad I can make you laugh. I can’t tell you how much that means to me to hear that! Can you believe my stinking husband? That guy….

      And get excited, because I’ve started taking notes on some of the conversations we’ve had lately because much like this one, they are ridiculous but funny.

      Our neighbors have to think we’re crazy, and they probably pray for the times when the air conditioning or heater has to be running so they don’t have to hear us through open windows. 🙂

  5. But most importantly, how was Iron Man 3? Did hubby provide any juicy spoilers? I’ll bet he loses his spider sense in this one, and has to fight The Penguin after taking on a horde of The Walking Dead with kryptonite. That’s just my educated guess, though.

    • He didn’t give me a rundown but he said he really liked it. He said some of the comic book nerds may be mad because they changed the villain a bit, but he said it was better than the 2nd one…which apparently wasn’t that hard to beat that one as it was pretty bad.

  6. Hello! Following you on bloglovin from the TOTB blog hop. And then I saw your tweet about vodka being your poison and decided I must follow you on Twitter, too. My BFF and I just ordered all these flavors from a distributor – cake, mango, whipped, cherry, and fireball – all Vodka flavors. It’s gonna be really bad and I don’t know who we think we are. Anyway…glad I found you. You are hilar.

    • I’m so glad you found me too! I’m also glad you love vodka, because that means you’re awesome.

      The whipped cream vodka is DANGEROUS because it really does taste like whipped cream. It’s great with Jell-o shots.

      I’ve had the cake one and it’s good too. The best is the one that tastes like Fruit Loops. I’m trying to remember what it’s called but it’s a top shelf brand, and I believe it even has a few different colored circles on it that mimic Fruit Loops. Now that can get you in trouble.

      And you and your BFF are clearly awesome and fun and have excellent taste. Thanks for following and reading and commenting! 🙂

  7. I suddenly really want to go see that movie. 6 glasses?!?!?

  8. Okay, this post showed me three things:
    1. Your husband is a nerd, which makes him awesome. (Side note: I like his shirt.)
    2. Obviously, Iron Man 3 was awesome, which makes me really excited to see it.
    3. You should probably see someone about that cough. It’s rather concerning…

    • 1. My husband is a total nerd and he is awesome, but don’t tell him I told you that.
      2. He said Iron Man 3 was awesome and he’s going to see it again this weekend. Hence, why he’s a nerd.
      3. The cough is actually doing better today. But no joke, I almost puked a few times because of it.

      I’m a mess.

  9. LOL! Love the picture. I’m going to guess my husband and I would have a similar conversation about such things.
    Thanks so much for linking up at the Real Family Fun link party! Hope to see you next week.

    • I’m glad to know I’m not the only one who has such ridiculous conversations with their spouse. It makes for a good marriage, I think.

      And that poor guy lets me photograph him, but I have no idea why he tolerates it. It’s probably because he knows I will do it anyway. The look on his face says it all.

      I will see you next week for sure! 🙂

  10. Woman, you are so funny. Men are such simple creatures, they are adorable. Love reading your blog, your sarcasm and humor is right up my alley. Keep em coming.

    • I’m so glad you enjoy my blog! i’m also glad there are others that get my humor. I always wonder if people think I’m really abusing my husband with the way I mock him so much. 🙂

      Thanks for reading and for commenting.

    I NEED those glasses. My adoration for RDJr. might be a little ridiculous, but I cannot resist a genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist. *swoon*

    What other colors did they have?

    • My husband might love RDJr. as much as you do, so you two can duke it out for him.

      I didn’t ask what the other colors were. I’m sorry I failed you in that aspect of the blog. 🙁
