She has forgotten how it feels to watch a movie with someone. There is a feeling, yes? A certain lilt, a certain pinch, that anticipation of being able to talk about the movie once it's over and dissecting the parts you didn't quite get, and enumerating your favorite lines and facial expressions, etc. Sharing a bucket of popcorn and smelling that moviehouse smell, looking around and seeing new faces in the dark, looking to your side and seeing that one familiar face. Smiling into your soda and holding hands, squeezing, moving your thumb along the outline of each other's hands.
