50 Shades of Grey

I mean, I read the damn books, I’ve been watching anticipation for the movie build for months; there was never any question whether I was going to see it. There are, however, a series of fairly strong reactions I go through when I have to actually admit it out loud. Like when a group of women in my gym class were chatting about the film and one lady asked me if I’d gone yet — I learned right then and there that I experience nearly fifty stages of awkwardness before I get to that oh-so-breezy “Yes!”

Ohhhhhhhh, the shame ... it burns:

 

And I have to summon all my strength, because it’s time to nut up and confess:

 

Okay. OKAY.

 

Yes. I SAW IT.

 

Whew. Damn, that feels better.

 

It’s all out in the open now:

 

Totally owning it:

 

And now that I’ve processed everything, I can pretend there was no shame in my game all along. Have I seen Fifty Shades of Grey, you ask?

 

Can you relate to these stages?
