Last Friday Bob and I had a three hour window between dropping kids off and picking up others from parties. We headed out for an early anniversary dinner, then came home to start a film. I chose “Zack and Miri Make a Porno” which I had just rented, since I knew it was completely kid-inappropriate and we had an empty house. The film began raunchy yet funny, and though we watched the whole thing, I became semi-bored as it turned repetitive and predictable. A little disappointing, based on the reviews I had initially seen (and I usually like Seth Rogan’s films).
Two nights later, while watching the Bears game, I took the puppy Cali out to do her business. As I walked on our side yard by our neighbor’s driveway, I realized that in the dark anyone there has a clear shot to seeing what we are watching on TV. How could I not have noticed that before? We don’t have window coverings on our kitchen windows, so there is no way to block the view.
So, were the neighbors–or their daughters–in the driveway on Friday night? It was before ten and they have 3 teenage girls, so most likely someone was out there. Did they happen to glance in our window? Did they think we were watching porn on an early evening, instead of watching a film about making a porn movie (with a few porn stars who dropped their clothes easily)? Were they curious and watched longer? Or did no one notice?
It gave me a great laugh on a Sunday night, just wondering. More amusing than some parts of ” Zack and Miri” (re-titled now that it is available in the library). C
