I paused the movie to hear the couple fighting outside. She said "You haven't talked to me at all tonight!" and he said "What?"
But I know what they really meant to say was "I get stupid when I see you and I don't know what to do about it." Then she slapped him and ran back inside crying. It was an awkward moment for me in someone else's life.
It made me think about the video on how penguins mate forever. And about how we're not penguins and how monogamy makes promises like traps And how the only thing we have in common with penguins is that we give each other rocks and that means I love you until the sun explodes.
How come penguins can get it more right than us? They can't even fly.
And when I watched this kid clutch his face as he wondered what he did wrong, I can't help but ******* hate all the happy penguins for him.
You stupid penguins, you all look like you're going to a fancy party all the time you stupid penguins you run like your pants are down you stupid penguins you're gonna have someone to sit on the couch with forever and you can't even fly!
What happens when you realize your penguin lover is immature and he overeats the fish and he's always late to things?
What happens when you realize your she-penguin has really bad penguin depression and you don't know how to deal with it?
What happens when you realize you both met too early and now you're different penguins?
I'll tell you what happens. They stay together. You know why? Because he gave her a ROCK. That's why. Because, to penguins rocks mean more than mortgages and wanting to go to Hawaii and step children and sprinklers and school districts. They can keep a marriage alive with some instincts and a ******* egg to sit on. PENGUINS Stay together longer than 50% of any couple you've ever met
And they can't even fly!
But maybe a bird that knows how to fall in love better than us doesn't need to know how to do that.
