Nothing much...Just SAW THE AVENGERS WITH BRITTANY. Mhm. Yes sir. She texted me, asked me if I was busy, and suggested that we see The Avengers. She brought her little brother with her though. So much for doing the old stretch-and-put-one-arm-around-her-shoulder trick. Just kidding. I wouldn't really do that. Still, we have yet to be completely alone. We always have friends around, or in last night's case, a little brother. I didn't really mind though.
Before we met at a grocery store to buy candy to smuggle into the theater (we are out of control rebels, obviously), she was texting me some troubling complaints about her boyfriend. Before said texts, I was forcing myself to be content with her dating this kid as long as he made her happy. But from what she confided in me, it seems that he's not making her happy at all. She basically told me that their relationship feels entirely one-sided, that he just doesn't know how to be a wonderful boyfriend and he pretty much sucks at being one.
I mean, the kid missed her graduation for fuck's sake. I wouldn't have missed her graduation for anything. If a swarm of alien-ninja hybrids unleashed an assault on our small town, I STILL would've made it to her graduation. Honestly, I went into petty romantic mode when she told me these things. I would be treating her much better than he ever could. He obviously takes her for granted. He takes this awesome, amazingly beautiful girl for granted. How? She's just...so amazing. How could anyone treat her so poorly?
I wasn't sure how to respond to her texts about him. I wanted to send her some long, romantic text but obviously that would've been inappropriate. So I simply said that I don't pretend to understand the complexities of teenaged relationships, but I do know that a one-sided relationship is definitely less than what she deserves, and that I hope he starts to treat her better. She thanked me for letting her vent, and I told her she could vent to me anytime about anything.
I'm mad now. I'm mad because this kid gets this awesomely fantastic girl and can't even keep her happy when I know I could. I don't care if I'm being immature or petty. My feelings towards her boyfriend were mostly neutral and now I just...really dislike him. Meh.
But anyway...about The Avengers. It was pretty damn cool, though it was painfully obvious that Black Widow was only used as a sex symbol as most female heroes are. Tragic. Though Scarlett Johansson is really sexy. Also, no matter how many aliens Thor battles his hair still stays fabulously perfect. I'm sure girls everywhere are envious of his godly, luscious locks. The special effects were breathtaking, the action was intense, and it was quality entertainment. Bare-bones storytelling no doubt, but who cares when you have million-dollar explosions in your face every thirty seconds?
