“An affair can overlap, of course” Helen Gurley Brown, Sex and the Single Girl
HGB is all about dating married men, so today, I asked my friend Eeon, (married to the awesome Bridget) to accompany me to see G.I. Joe: Retaliation. And since Eeon does the Canned Laser podcast with Pete (one of my Most Eligible Bachelors) I decided to invite him along too . . . after all, since HGB says I can date two men at once, why not go out with them at the same time? I’m a busy girl, after all. Also, this way, I shielded Ian from having to sit through a movie that was almost as good as The Room.
Some quick thoughts about the movie: Walton Goggins was extra-Goggins-y, just eating scenery and loving it. He rocked a pink oxford (Note to guys: You cannot do this. Do not even try) and his scenes were over too soon in a really drag way. It wasn’t as clever as his performance in Predators or as deep as his portrayal of Shane Vendrell in The Shield. But it was amusing for a few minutes in an otherwise torturous movie devoid of soul, heart, or original dialogue.
But the company was great. We had pizza and wings afterwards at the Depot, and they made me laugh, like they always do.
Guys, here’s the secret to getting a great girl (like Bridget). Be funny. And not funny in that way that you can quote Anchorman. Be genuinely funny. Learn to tell a joke or a good story. That way , no matter what, you can always show a girl (even ones you’re not dating) a good time.
Even at G.I. Joe.
