Chivalry Is Undead

| Romantic | October 18, 2012

(I have been sick at home for a couple of days. Since my girlfriend is feeling sorry for me, she lets me pick the movie to watch tonight, even though she hates all my choices. I order a notoriously gory zombie horror, to which she gates paler and paler throughout the night. When the film is over, she looks quite sick.)

Me: “Babe, are you okay?”

Girlfriend: “That film was horrible! How can you not feel sick?”

Me: “Did it make you sick, babe?”

Girlfriend: “I really don’t feel well at all now. I keep seeing zombies and-” *she shudders*

(I wrap my blanket around her instead. I get up and make her a cup of her favourite blend of tea. While I am up, I do the dishes and fold the laundry. When I get back to the sofa I see that she is browsing for more gory horror films.)

Me: “What are you doing?”

Girlfriend: “You’re being so nice! If I had known watching this is all it would have taken [for you to pamper me], then I’d have-” *she gets distracted by something on the TV* “-ooh babe, look! This film has a sequel!”
