What is Sadder?

A) Thirty-year-old guy in front of us in line at the movies who buys one ticket each for a movie at 2:15 and a movie at 4:30

or

b) Thirty-year-old guy next to us on the subway who is grinning widely while watching American Idol on his iPod

I don't think either is sad. I go to movies by myself sometimes (Most recently "An Inconvenient Truth". And I watch things on my ipod sometimes that other people probably think are stupid. I KNOW I listen to stuff that people think is stupid and I have no problem with that. If something makes someone smile (and it involves no killing, poverty or nudity) I'm all for it, there aren't enough smiles in this world.

Yes, but do you go to two movies in a row alone?

I've considered it, but I'm too poor. So instead I watch two movies in a row alone on my computer. And honestly, that isn't as fun I don't think.

I agree - going to the movies alone, chilling for an afternoon, isn't that bad if you happen to be an introvert.

Watching American Idol on your iPod - well...

I hope the movies weren't "American Idol, The Movie, Seasons 1 and 2".

if I remember right, the movies were My Super Ex-Girlfriend and The Devil Wears Prada.

At least it was two different movies and not the same movie twice.
