Princess and I decided that we would rent a movie last Sat night. The three grown up monkeys got us a Blue Ray player for Christmas and here it is March and we still hadn't experienced the joy it can bring to our lives (okay that's a bullshit line - we just got tired of the grown Monkey's asking if we had watched anything on it so we rented the movie in Blue Ray).
We go to Blockbuster and dig out our little blue card, which we had a hard time finding because we NEVER rent movies anymore. I'm a bit of a tightwad. I say to Princess, "I can't believe we pay for Showtime, Cinamax, and HBO and here we are renting a damn movie in a video store!" We walk through the countless aisles of movies and finally arrive at the Twilight Box.
Now, Princess and I are both fans of the HBO Series True Blood, so we are thinking, "hmmmmm this may be good."
We get the movie home, settle into our PJ's and I carefully remove the movie from it's plastic container and slide it into the player. Then I sit and look at the front of it. WTF ... "I can't read any of this small writing on here Princess ....." "Here" ... Princess says and hands me the remote. I spend almost 10 minutes trying to figure out the damn remote buttons. I FINALLY push select and the TV screen flashes .... NO DISC IN PLAYER. "WTF I know I put it in there" I say to Princess and she lays on the couch comfortable and patiently waiting.
I push the open button and the player opens, no disc is there! I shut it. I open it and repeat this process a few times. I bang on top of it. NOTHING.
"Damn it to hell, I'm going to have to take it apart to get it out of there". I go to the garage and rummage around finding the small screwdriver needed to open up the case. Princess tells me that she is going to take a shower while I take the player apart. I open it and NOTHING is in there. NOTHING. I look toward the shelf that the player was sitting on .....
When we got the Blue Ray player for Christmas, I put it on top of the DVD player we already had. That's where the Twilight disc was... safe and sound in the old player.
But I dare not tell Princess where I found it ..... never ..... will I tell her!
