When Good Conversations Go Bad

Last week I had lunch with some friends I used to work with. It had been far too long since the last time we'd met up, so there was a lot of bs to catch up on. One of the things I seem to have forgotten was how much fun we have when we meet up and how quick we all are to give each other shit.

Chris "What movies have you seen lately?"
Me "Um, well, not a lot. Oh Cowboys vs. Aliens...the cowboy part of the movie was great. The alien part was a dud."
Chris "I totally agree! I loved the first part of the movie. With such an epic name, you'd think they'd really do it up, but the aliens were really disappointing. What else have you seen?"
Me "Oh, we saw 'Protect The Block'. Fun movie!"
Mike "What is that?"
Chris "Yeah what is it? I've never heard of it and I see pretty much everything that comes out."
Me "Yeah, I can't believe you've never heard of it. Nick Frost is in it."
blank looks from around the table.
Me "Protect The Block is set in a rough neighborhood in London. There is a gang of teens running around causing a ruckus. All of a sudden these aliens start landing in the neighborhood. So these kids have to beat them off and...."
Mike "Whoa! Whoa! What kind of movie is this?!"
Me "Oh sweet Jesus! I meant to say that they kill them off and beat them up to protect their block!"
Me laughing "Didn't I tell you it was an X rated movie"
Chris "No wonder I haven't heard of it! I don't go to those theaters!"
Me "Did I say Protect The Block? I mean Protect The Cock! I should have known that you wouldn't let something like that get by you! Well, you should see it anyway. It was fun."
Chris "Hmm, I might have to look it up. But if there's any beating off, I'm not gonna watch it."
Mike "Chris, you let me know how it is.
Me "Ok,ok...just go watch it!"
