Why I Haven’t Seen A Christmas Story

It’s true. I haven’t seen this movie.

Why? you ask.

Because I don’t want to do it. It’s as simple as that.

I know I’m hard headed and stubborn and a lot of other words, but I just don’t want to see it. I get especially cranky when people tell me I have to see it. I do not. It’s my prerogative to see it or not. A few Christmases ago, my friend Amy thought she’d be a smarty pants and bought me this [though looking at it, I’m not sure that’s the exact one she bought]: I think after that I agreed to watch the movie, only if there were copious amounts of wine included. No one has delivered on that, yet.

The best part is that I can quote it, because every one in my life can. My husband tells me often I’m “not allowed” to quote it if I haven’t seen it. So does that mean I can’t quote The Godfather because I haven’t seen it? Pfffft. Whatever, dude.

Part of my 101 in 1001 is to see this movie. Because people tell me I must. You better believe if I’m not impressed, they’re going to know it.

  1. ha.. that is a funny bobble head.

    You can tell the person that gave it to you there is another mom in this world who also has not seen her kids favorite Christmas movie that her kids quote…
    I am your newest follower..pls follow back if you can.

  2. Forget A Christmas Story (I have never watched it beginning to end, although I’ve probably seen all the parts over the years). SEE THE GODFATHER MOVIES. They are vastly, vastly superior. Although they probably don’t come with bobbleheads. I could be wrong, though.

  3. My mom is not happy with me because my 6 year old son has yet to see A Christmas Story, so she would be flabbergasted with you :b By the way, you probably will not be impressed since it has been built up so much.
