But having been married to this guy for 20 years, I knew this question wasn’t as innocent as it seemed. There was a hidden meaning. It was actually code for, “Do you want to see that new action movie with lots of special effects, a huge body count and bad guys with fake foreign accents?”  By Tracy Beckerman, GHNS.
