LOTR - Longest Movie Ever

I will always remember the first time a boy held my hand. I was 14 and a bunch of us went to go see the first Lord of the Rings, including my "boyfriend." We sat next to each other and the butterflies were just swirling. Somehow, one of us had made sure that the arm rest was up so there was nothing in between us. Despite this, we still sat as far from each other as possible because clearly we didn't want the other person to know we liked them - that would just ruin everything. Sometime during the first quarter of the movie I moved my hand to my leg. After about ten minutes I noticed he had done the same thing. By the time the first third of the movie was over, our pinkies were only an inch apart. I was totally elated. I had never been this close to a boy's hand before. About halfway through the movie, our pinkies made contact! That was such a bold move, we had to stay there for a while to calm our beating hearts and make sure that the other person wasn't going to suddenly change their minds and retract their pinky. Throughout the rest of the movie, his hand slowly inched over mine and just as Samwise was giving his motivational speech of encouragement to Mr. Frodo. . . he officially held my hand. Fireworks went off, bells rang, all manner of fourteen year old happiness went on. Two minutes later Frodo and Sam ventured off into the distance, he let go of my hand and we stood up and walked out of the theater.

I don't think I have to remind you how long LOTR is.

(178 minutes)
