The Litmus Test

I was supposed to film a vlog on Saturday night.  About 11 pm, my roommate comes upstairs, and asks me what the deal is.  And I say:

“I’m watching Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.  How do you think I’m feeling right now?”

Now, I’m sure in a normal household, this is a strange and unusual conversation.  But not here.  Here, we regularly discuss what we’d do if a significant other admitted they were a werewolf, and creepy demon children who peep in your windows.

But I think it’s safe to safe that a movie like “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” is a litmus test for how I’m feeling.  It’s not exactly…a Scott movie, shall we say.  If I wanted to watch something childreny, I’d watch Harry Potter (I mean, duh).  Normally I watch things that are a lot less visually stimulating, and rely heavily on dark, spooky things.

So long story short, no vlog, and I got to watch a magic flying elevator.  And I still don’t feel fantastic, but I’m not watching…oh God, I don’t even know.  All I know is that even a kinda dark and creepy Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was too much for me.  Maybe if I keep feeling sick, I’ll pop in The Little Mermaid 2: Return to the Sea.

What about you?  Do you do something out of character like this when you’re sick?  Or are you all about the comfort foods?

  1. Hope you’re feeling better. I’m usually going at a hundred miles an hour and rarely sit for longer than five minutes (unless I’m writing), and I don’t watch television (except NFL football). I act completely out of character when I’m sick in that I’m flat out on the couch either asleep or watching television. My 3-yo’s favorite ‘sick’ movies are all The Little Mermaid movies, so I’ve seen those a ton! 🙂

  2. When I’m sick I go straight for my comfort books–old favorites I’ve read so often I barely have to focus on the page. Worlds I’ve visited so many times I feel totally at home when I’m in them.

    Hope you feel better soon!
