For the past, I don’t know how long Crazy Cat Boy has been reluctant to leave the house at night, don’t know why but it’s been slowly driving me insane… Pro Tip: Not drinking will make these things VERY clear to you! 😉
Perhaps he’s scared of the dark? I dunno.
So we spend our Saturday nights flicking (well, him, flicking, I’m not allowed to use the remote apparently!) through the same crappy films that we didn’t want to watch last weekend… Not sure why he thinks there is going to be some seismic change in 7 days on Apple’s movie offering, is it a boy thing?
But being a good manager and problem solver I’ve found a short term solution… Movies. In particular Deadpool 2, Solo, and the Incredibles 2 are showing in cinemas now.
The Saturday just gone I managed to lure him out of the house, convinced him that a 7.15 movie was fine, we wouldn’t be home to late and that dinner prior at the Mexican restaurant we’ve been meaning to go to would be a lovely night out. Yes, I ordered dinner at 5.45 pm like I was on the first sitting of the seniors all you could eat buffet, but it’s baby steps and I can cope with that, at least I was out of the house on a Saturday night like a grown up!
So, who’s money’s on me building him up to an 8 pm movie that will allow me a dinner time that doesn’t involved me eating with families with very young children or people old enough to be my parents? I’m thinking by the time we book our tickets for The Incredibles 2 we might make a time where when I was younger I’d start thinking about having a shower to get ready to go out at night! Wish me luck.
PS: I’m now officially a third of the way through Belles 100 Day Challenge and I’m considering making this a semi permanent state of total sobriety.
