One of the many things we enjoy together is watching movies. We are one movie crazy couple and there's rarely any big release that we miss. In fact, my doc already has a to-watch list of movies releasing this year. Yeah, that's how big movie buffs we are.

So while movies do make up a big part of our entertainment, the only thing I need while watching a movie is... POPCORN!!!

It's very simple. I need a bag of popcorn to enjoy a good movie with and I need a bag of popcorn to tolerate a nonsensical movie!

Each time we go for a movie, I ensure a less hearty meal for myself lest I have no appetite for popcorn. Yes, it's like that with me. My doc only smiles when I rush to the popcorn counter to get a bag before a movie begins. No, I can never wait for the interval.

So this time, it was the same. While he went and took our seats, I rushed to get popcorn for myself. And of course, there's always a diet Coke or a coffee for my doc on the tray I carry inside the theater.

As the movie rolled, I got busy munching my popcorn and occasionally offered it to my doc, which he refused politely each time.

At one point, I tried to coerce him into having some popcorn. And this time, he raised his hand and stated, "It is not that I don't want to eat popcorn or I don't like it, It's that I DISLIKE popcorn."

I stared at him in disbelief. Instantly, I withdrew the popcorn tub, happy that I had it all to myself, and a little amazed at the straight words I had just heard!

So yes, even after years of courtship and a few months into marriage, there still are things we are discovering. The latest one being - he DISLIKES popcorn while I have always loved them!

Now that makes me wonder what kept him from telling me this for such a long time. Before you smirk, I am a typical wife trying to make out more than what's meant from my husband's statement :D

Happy Wednesday, blogdosts :)

    Movie buffs!! We share that interest Neha..

    teehee, at one point I thought you went and sat next to a stranger :-))

    But yes I do agree, the process of discovering each other never ends does it?

    Lovely read.

    I am in such agreement...a movie in the theater can NOT happen without popcorn. It is ESSENTIAL. My twin sister and I inherited this from my mother and yes, we can each individually put down a large tub of popcorn by ourselves. =) Recently, we've begun mixing in Milk Duds, Carmel Corn, Kettle Corn, or even Corn Pops to jazz it up a bit - but, even without the mix-ins - sitting down with that popcorn ready to take in the movie and previews...that's my "happy place".

    My hubby isn't much of a popcorn eater, nor is my son....just leaves more for us!

    Awesome post. It's for the first time I came across your blog, via another blogfriend i guess and I simply loved it. Wonder if men have such easy systems as compared to our complicated ones, why can't they simply tell us what's the real story???

    That is the beauty of love Neha! You keep discovering new things as you move along:) Very beautifully written:)

  9. RiĆ  Says:

    Hmm...well men aren't the expressive kinds so u will discover many more such things/quirks in the times to come. :) So good luck with that.

    Frankly speaking I too don't like it.
    But love movies :-)

    Relax. Do not waste time trying to imagine things. One may have known a person for a long time but it is only when they are together 7 X 24 that they learn about each other well. Enjoy movies and popcorn. And of course his company all the times.

    Take care

  12. I think I have been gone for a very long time..So first of all, congratulations on your marriage..
    Well, I think that is kinda good that you get to know little things about your life partner as time passes by. It makes life interesting when there is always something new u find out about ur partner, rather than every thing disclosed in one go..

  13. I am SO with you on the popcorn, give it to me and a big one!!!

    My family loves popcorn. We don't go to the theatre much, but we watch at home and make popcorn on the stove. We love experimenting with different flavors, though butter and salt are still our favorites.

    It's an amazing experience, learning about your life partner. My husband and I have been married 16 years and he still surprises me sometimes.
