Big Tom entered the pub last night and H and I jumped up for big hugs. Noticing the bluesy song the guitarist played, he spun me out in a dance move then pulled me in.
"Where've you been tonight?" I asked.
"I went to see Men Who Stare at Goats." He twirled me around the bar. That man can make anyone look like she can dance.
"How was it?" H asked.
"Save yourself the cash and just watch the trailer a couple times." He dipped me. I almost fell over and decided to sit down.
"What was wrong with it?" H asked.
"Nothing. I just want to be entertained. There are so many great movies I'd rather see sequels to."
"Like what?" I asked.
"Like Howard the Duck." Tom sipped his beer.
"Huh?" I eyed Big Tom.
"Howard the Duck II. That would be a great movie. Or Short Circuit IIII."
I looked at H. She looked like she was following Big Tom. Had she seen the originals? And Short Circuit IIII? Should there be any film with a "IIII" after it?
"Or Earth Girls Are Easy," said Tom.
"That was hilarious. Remember how they shaved down the fur?" H giggled.
"These are your picks? These are the movies you want to see sequels to?" I asked.
"Yes!" Tom exclaimed and stared at me like I was a nutty person for asking.
Am I nutty? I put it out to you. What movies would you like to sequels to?
