DP Daily Prompts: Can’t Watch This

pad2014-s.png (308×60)

When was the last time you watched something so scary, cringe-worthy, or unbelievably tacky– in a movie, on TV, or in real life—you had to cover your eyes?

I had this experience a while ago, my brother-in-law forgot about their marriage anniversary, his wife was livid, at one point I thought she’d throw something at him, she didn’t care I was watching this horrendous side of her. To calm her down he instantly made plans to take her out to watch a movie. I wanted to excuse myself but they insisted I’ll have to go.

He picked a random movie, he wanted to appease his wife, this was his main goal. I was in Dhaka, we went to watch a Bengali movie with an unknown cast, I had never heard of them, apparently the actors were from Bangladesh.

I could tolerate it if the actors were at least good looking, the main characters were the most hideous looking humans I’ve ever seen on silver screen, to make matters worse their acting was so bad I was having a tough time sitting and watching, I could not move, my new relatives wouldn’t appreciate it.

I had to sit and watch for three hours, the most ridiculous movie, I’ve ever known.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Your post reminds me of how, sometimes, I have to endure activities for others that I might not really like. Often, there is a greater purpose for doing so. Thank you for this post.

    All good wishes,

    robert

    • My brother-in-law picked a movie he knew nothing about, it should have been only him and his wife watching it,
      but they dragged me along, his wife was still in a fighting mood.
