Rocky Horror Picture Show ~squeal~

I can die of shock, I really can. I knew my husband and I came from two different worlds, but this one really took the cake!

He was the most popular jock in high school from a small town in New Hampshire. I was pretty well known in my performing arts high school here in Las Vegas. That alone makes us seem unmated.

Earlier today, Rocky Horror Picture Show was on one of the movie channels on cable. I love that movie, it's a staple in my high school. Not a school dance went by without playing either the Village People's "YMCA" or Rocky Horror's "The Time Warp". Those were the only songs guaranteed to have everyone dancing. Apparently, this was the case only in my high school. But I digress.

My husband was in our room trying to sleep after his ordeal the last two days (don't ask. well, ask, but ask me personally). I'm watching Rocky Horror and start singing along to "The Time Warp". He knocks on the wall (his standard call for me) and I go answer. He asks me what I was singing along to and I told him. He gave me his "You're a freak" look and started making fun of me. Apparently, that movie doesn't have spot in his heart like it does in mine. Not only that, he's never even seen the entire movie! Here in town, there's a theater that does live showings of Rocky Horror every Friday or Saturday night at midnight. I told him I have to take him one night. He said yeah right.

Now I have to divorce him. That is one big irreconcilable difference, if you ask me.

Rock Horror as an irreconciliable difference? Maybe it is just the unfunlovingness of being uninterested in what you love that is the root problem. A spouse is supposed to be interested! Sad.

I would time warp with you!

I feel your pain. I too am a Rocky fan. My best friend from highschool and I danced to the Time Warp at our senior prom. I recently rented it for my husband to watch for the first time and he hated it. It broke my heart, but even though he hated it he did say he would go to a midnight showing with me. If only they had one close by, but they don't so he is off the hook.

Rocky Horror at a midnight matinee, with folks in costumes and all? Sounds like great fun to me, I've seen the picture several times, but never with all the cult antics included. The only thing I don't like about the flick is Meatloaf, he irritates the bejeebers outta me. The rest is just fun!

Not all who wander are lost.

you can't be that shallow. i'm sure there is more to your husband than his taste in cult theatre. i love the film myself, but i wouldn't be grounds for dumping someone i'm dating, let alone divorce.

I'm just teasing about divorcing him. The reason why we work so well is because we are complete polar opposites. My best friend from way back when knew I would end up with someone like him. I needed someone as out going as him to counter-balance how shy I can be.
