Did You See That?

When Dan and I went to go see The Expendables last weekend, the theater was pretty full. Up in the front of the theater, there were two young boys who had snuck in to see the movie. They enjoyed the movie, a lot, in a way that only pre-teen boys can enjoy a movie.

Every time there was a particularly dramatic explosion, special effect, fight scene, or anything else cool in the silence afterward you could hear the boys ecstatically yelling to each other:

Boy1: Woah, did you see that!
Boy2: Wow!
Boy1: Holy crap, did you see that?!
Boy2: Yeah!
Boy1: Yeah!
Boy2: Did you see that knife?!
Boy1: Wow! That was so cool!

And so on. It was pretty funny.

Based on their level of excitement over the movie, I imagine they'll have a tough time keeping their deception a secret for too long. I mean, did you see that!? Wow!
