My Hero...

Yes..for 2 hrs we were in the theatre ...eating lehar kurkure and my hero(Hubby Dear) was "saving my life"....from the evil goons...while err..I was sitting right next to him!

We went to see MI3 over the weekend--for me the only motivation being to oogle at Tom cruise (so what if hes 40....hes still as much a lech material!)...and thats that...it didnt matter if the movie per se was nonsensical and the action was'nt even that grt...and that's how I assume it is for most women...

However realised that for men..(generalised based on Hubby dear's behaviour)....watching sports or a movie is not about watching the movie or sports per se..its about feeling like the Hero himself who either scored the goal or saved his wife for those 2 hrs !!!!

Yes throughout the 2 hours Hubby dear kept believing he is the Hero and especially 'My hero" with statements like..."If u get kidnapped baby then....I will also come and save u....like him now I am gonna jump!! "I will also ride the bike like this","See even I run like him"..."Dont worry, I will also punch him like that"..blah, blah!!...

And of course I had to play along by asking questions like--"But Tom Cruise has a team to help him..whom will you get to save me"!...to which the reply was "Dont worry, I will get"A"..(his best frd) to mastermind the whole plan..and then I will come and rescue u"...!...Thank you god for giving me literally a Knight in Shining Armour!!:-)

Finally I had to burst the bubble and tell him 'Honey am right here, ur not a secret agent and well...I dont think I have any intentions of being kidnapped.....so lets leave all this for Tom Cruise..he gets paid in millions to do all this crap u see":-)

It was almost like young boys who have just got a new gun and they pretend the enemy is around them and shoot like they'r the brave hero cop....killing everyone around!!...bang, bang!!

Guess that's why they say...Boys will be boys....guns, gadgets and girls...prasadise for them!

Thank you honey for "saving " my life yesterday and for being so cute!!....Lets please watch a mushy romantic movie next week...Id rather see u imitating the romantic dinners and cute pick-up lines !;-)

Hee hee... That's so cute. Well, it's nice that he's identifying with heroes who save you rather than the bad guys or some womanizing bad boy character. How romantic!

The torture of watching such movies has been a long standing one. I remember being subject to such movies as a kid (thanks to my brother)...later friends in college...and now the husband...and all this while I wondered to myself....why why why ? What do they enjoy about such flicks? Ekta...thanks to your post....the world seems to suddenly make a bit more sense. And i can hope that if we ever come to a situation where i am being kidnapped, hubby dear would put to use some of what he has learnt and internalized!

i enjoyed reading...very cute:)...and i think it's sweet wen he says stuff like i'll rescue u and be a hero!:)...!

i don see this in Rajiv anymore as much as i see it in my lil son...!!!:) He's spiderman and he saves the world everyday from scary monsters...! Mommy's always the one being rescued...

tell u sumthin cute...Vedant asked for a barbie doll once and Rajiv of course was like NO! dolls are for lil girls! (though i did buy him a kitchen set once)...

welll, so lil vedant sulked for a while and then came up wid this "mummyyy ek baby girl kab laogi? mai jab bada bhaiya banunga uske liye mall se ek barbie doll launga aur usko khelna sikhaunga!"...lolz...

we don't seem to realize but we kind of condition their (kids) minds...ok for boys to do this but not that etc...this is for girls...blah blah...

m gonna get him d doll...anyway!
will go well wid the kitchen set too:-)...

Khushi:- :-)

Hope:- yeah yeah he did read it and was blushing with the fact that he was being called my hero;-)

Neha:-:-):-)yeah it actually is..especially when hes actually soo excited abt it..hes so cute sometimes!:-)

ALter:- I guess ur right abhi..but maybe I have never been that kinda person--maybe am just too practical to fantasize based on a movie!..;-)
Btw thx for dropping by and welcome to the blog

Virus:- Hey firstly welcome and yeah tommy rocks..sigh!!

Sudeep:-yeah..I didnt want to do it..but I really wanted to oggle at tommy dear and he just wasnt letting me;-)
And u know what I actually wanted to do the dancing bit too!
Was watching this crappy Hindi serial called nach baliye where real life onscreen couples dance and perform and thot it was so cute so was asking him if he will dance with me and very diplomatically he answered.."baby u need to be an actor for this!":-)

pixie:- hey..dont get carried away by this--there are times when we just pull each others hair out too!

At 11:37 AM, Blogger Dalicia said...

i've asked my friends about MI3...they say it's okay....nothing really special.
i'm not a fan of tom cruise.

i love watching action and very bloody movies. that's just me! *LOL* it's not only a guy thing...maybe i have MANLY behavior.

da vinci code, doesn't follow the book. although, i like tom hanks and audrey tautou...i'm looking forward to X-MEN (the last stand), miami vice (because
gong li is in), and maybe the devil wears prada....

 
At 1:26 PM, Blogger ~*. D E E P A .* ~ said...

At 1:41 PM, Blogger Ron said...

Erm, I used to think Tom Cruise was reaalllllly hot. But now whenever I see him I feel he looks quite insane...not very lecherous thought inducing I must say.

And congratulations on the reallllly cute hubby. My hubby to be is usually tooo engrossed in the movie to make any conversation :(

 
At 7:01 PM, Blogger sophie said...

hey..cute post indeed. was never much of a tom cruise fan, mostly beacuse all the girls loved him!! the man has got involved in scientology and the like and made an embarassment of himslef on live tv. the mans star is fading fast..time to find a new hero, ladies.

Hehe.... this ws another cute 1 !

Now u guys better chk out DVC before a "mushy" movie !

At 9:28 PM, Blogger karmic_jay said...
