Saint Elmo’s Fire, Wild, & Marriage


( This is an absolutely true story.  I should know,  I’m the one telling it. )

“How wild it was, to let it be.” Cheryl Strayed,  Wild

 

Wine w/ Mr. Liverpool after WILD.

Wine w/ Mr. Liverpool after WILD.

~First Year of Marriage:   Your adorable British husband agrees to take you to the film,  St. Elmo’s Fire.

 

Of course, he’d do anything with you because, well,  he’s madly in love with the very core of you,  the scent of your Aqua Net hairspray, the cherry-red lipstick, the idiosyncrasies,  the beautiful imperfections,  the sassiness, the shit.

 

The ticket line is chalk a block, but it doesn’t matter because you cling to one another’s words like poetry, like the best fucking meal you’ve ever had,  like pure oxygen,  like prayer.  You laugh and grope and steal kisses.

 

You share popcorn with extra butter.   He hates butter,  but he eats it anyway.  You split a jumbo diet coke.  He only drinks real  coke, but he sips it anyway.  He holds your hand.

 

You weep into his shirt because Jules (Demi Moore)  has locked herself in her apartment and opens all of the windows to kill herself by freezing to death.  You weep because the friends stop going to Saint Elmo’s Bar.  You weep because Rob Lowe is an asshole.

 

He holds you,  rubs your shoulder, & whispers,  “It’s going to be okay, Kim.”

 

It was always okay with him.

 

You notice a small tear sliding down his unshaven face and wonder if he’s sad about Jules, too.

 

Your heart blossoms into multi colored wild flowers and suns.

 

 

~25 Years of Marriage:     Your still adorable husband agrees, with much hesitation,  to take you to the film,  Wild.

 

He will still do anything for you,  but some of your little imperfections have now become irritations.  For example,  he doesn’t let you kiss him when you have on your cherry- red lipstick.  “I’m on my way to work.  Kiss me later,  Kim.”

 

He despises Lifetime movies.  Says they bash men.  He’s annoyed when you leave Milky Way wrappers on the floor.   He would rather watch soccer than the Golden Globes & The Academy Awards.

 

Anyhow,  you say,  “Wild is amaaaaaaaazing.  It’s about this woman who hikes 1,100 miles on the Pacific Crest Trail.  Can you imagine? But it’s more than that. Much more.  She lost her mother to cancer, so she’s mourning and grieving.   Needs to find herself.  Needs to find purpose. Needs to find love.  And she was on heroin and screwing lots of men named Killer and Doobie.  She needs to reflect. She meets all these cool hippie people along the way who teach her stuff about life and…”

 

You know him well.  You know every unsaid thought.  You know he’s rolling his eyes inside his head.  You know he’s pondering,  ‘another bloody chick flick.’

 

“What do you think,” you ask.

 

“Well,  is that the only film playing at the theaters?”

 

You hear the sarcasm inside his British, Liverpudlian accent.  You hear something else.

 

“Yep,”  you respond abruptly.   “It’s the only one.”

 

“I guess.”  He does not say this excitedly.

 

The ticket line is so long, you wonder if there’s time to get popcorn.   You must have popcorn.  Buttered and salted.  You must have a jumbo diet coke.   He gets Milk Duds and a real coke.

 

When you get to the ticket girl,  he looks at you.

 

“Whaaaat?”  You ask.

 

“I see The Gambler with Mark Walberg is playing at 2:00, too.”

 

“So.”

 

“Well,  do you mind if I go to that instead?  It ends the same time.”

 

You pause.  “Sure.”

 

“We can go for wine afterwards.”

 

You smile at one another.

 

He walks one way.   You walk the other.

 

You know that’s a metaphor for something or another.

 

You know you’ll need to write the words down when you get home

 

You also know,  you’ll always be going home together

    Aw, Kim I was laughing reading this post <3 Believe it or not my Beau took me to Wild the other night. As i wept throughout the film, he sat stock still. I sniffled and used the back of my hand to wipe away the leaking from my right eye. I would look out the corner of said weepy eye to see if he noticed my ridiculous lack of control. No, don't think so. I noticed he checked the time once. I noticed he didn't laugh at the same parts as me. When it was over, he sat stock still. I wondered if he liked it after all. He is the quiet type. Silent but never wavering. Usually I like that but when i make him take me to a 'chick' movie I want him to show me something. Show me that he survived it. ANYTHING 🙂 He said finally, that was good. Then we got up and left…we went for some wine, too.

    The going home together (despite the teeny imperfections) is magic. KNOWING that you will be going home together, this year and next is the very best kind of safety net.
    And yes, I smiled. A lot.

    Dear Kim, I so enjoyed this post of yours – I always so enjoy my visits here – a very welcome change of pace (as I call it) – love your writing. Love your choice of words. And love this post. My darling husband and I met when we were 15(!) years old – we both took ballroom dance classes (quite common around these parts) and although we lost touch for a while, we got back together many years later and married…I think we should go to the movie theater this weekend…
    Feel yourself hugged,
    Andrea

    After 45 and a half years, (6 of wedded bliss), we know each other too well. If I want to see a movie I know he’ll loathe, and vice/ versa, we simply make separate plans. Not to mention, now that we are *retired*, sort of, we have waaay too much time together as it is.
    However we almost always share a bottle of wine in the evening, and maybe another with dinner.
    Life is good!

    At least you got him to the theater with the intent to go to Wild—I dragged the hubby to a movie he despised about 5 years ago and he will now only see James Bond or sure fire action films. But he does do my dishes–almost 29 years here. How things have changed—but no complaints 🙂

    Holy jumpin’ Liverpudlians! You responded so well. Your kind of attitude will certainly assure you of going home with that man many, many more years!

    I took the Queen’s Code – a FABULOUS course – over the ‘Net. Allison, the founder, is bang on – we spend too much effort wanting our men to be hairy women in certain situations that thrust hot blood through our veins. In your story, it was like you said to your husband, “I respect who you are and I love you for having the balls to honestly ask for what you want. Go and enjoy – ’cause I’m going to do the same.”

    Acceptance is so full of love and respect.

    Bravo, Kim!

    I like the way you formatted the comparisons on this Kimmy… And oh yes, 31,years. I appreciate the honesty – it always rings through from you. I think my hubby understands me less and less. He hates that I like to advdnture without him… He’s even staring an antiblog to my blog… Lol but like you say, I’ve no doubt no matter which different ways we go, we’ll be going home together at the end of the day. That means a LOT!!!

    Hi Kim,

    What an awesome story, so honestly told! Loved it.
    When I was quite young and heard about men changing with the passage of time or not showing the same affection, I would tell myself…we would be as loving as ever, we would be different from all those couples who tend to drift apart but that enthusiasm of youth withers away, don’t know how despite all the wishes and efforts!

    Movies together? NEVER! Home theatre forever for him! But he is ever ready for an exotic vacation! Life is good if we keep accepting the changes.

    Reading this brings me so many feelings. Right now I feel a little teary because I remember how it felt to be so deliriously in love and being loved back in that way too. God I miss it. How i would have wished it would have matured into something like what you and your husband had. Its ok if things mellowed out, thats what happens when all those crazy endorphins wean and you just become real people again. Its totally ok to have different interests and enjoy different movies. There is only one thing that matters Kim: that guy has your back. God bless you.
    p.s. i really want to see wild. i saw the trailer

He kind of knew you could handle going to Wild by yourself. xx

    I’ve been married for over two decades, but my hubs gets off easy when it comes to movies since I love action movies. Last night, we watched The Equalizer with Denzel Washington, and today we saw Taken 3 with Liam Neeson. But we each get our own popcorn. 🙂

    There is NOTHING to do in this area unless you want to drive for an hour or so, so date night is almost always going to some movie we’ve both wanted to see. We save the rest of them for Pay-4-View and our comfy living room.

    I love action adventure (he does too) – hey, what’s not to love? Buff guys or big heros like Bruce Willis’ Die Hard, The Expendables with older heros, Jason Statham in anything… He loves some creepy movies (I read a book, cover my ears during screams, and keep reading) – he likes sci-fi (I do the same thing as with the scarey movie), I love old black and whites (he suffers through them then agrees they were awesome movies – but he forgets that until the next time he has to watch another B&W!). He loves westerns and I love Clint Eastwood so that works… sort of!

    One thing we both agree on – I’m his best friend, he’s my best friend and we have more fun together than with any other person. Ewww, isn’t that gaggy?

    I loved Wild and saw it with my son. My husband was working. I cried when she reached the bridge at the end and my son couldn’t understand why…maybe because he is 15! My husband went to see it another time because I had raved about it and he is an avid moviegoer. He said it was just ok….typical.. He’ll go with me to see just about any movie but it all stops at certain TV shows. He’ll watch some but some he just won’t watch. He is wearing the hell out of Netflix…that’s his thing.

    I loved the book. Intended to go see the movie (while husband is out of town) last weekend and forgot. Maybe today is the day. He’d go with me, but he wouldn’t enjoy it. Told him I was going to go see it while he was out of town and we’d go see the Steven Hawkings movie together when he got home. Works for us. Glad you’re always going to go home with him. Us too. 25 years for us next Sept.

    I was obsessed with St. Elmo’s Fire when it first came out. Rob Lowe… Oooohhhh, Rob Lowe. *sigh* I still love the theme song by Kenny Loggins.
    Wild is on my list to see in the next couple of weeks, Kim. I hope it met your expectations, even if Mr. Liverpool didn’t.
    I love-love-love going to the movies. It’s the only time I drink soda: a small root beer. I don’t get popcorn. I stuff my own snack (which, on occasion, has been an actual meal) in my purse. For example, when I saw Into the Woods on Boxing Day, I had salt-and-pepper rice crisps with me. (And I didn’t get root beer; I brought coconut water in with me.) There was a mighty-fine glass of cabernet sauvignon after ITW, though. 🙂
    I’m winding up for a movie-viewing day, much like I did around this time last year. I’ll spend the bulk of the day at the theater watching the movies on my must-see list, thanks to a gift card I received for Christmas. (Santa knows me well.) I might be alone, or I might be with a friend. Either way, it’ll be awesome. xoxo

    I loved this because I could so relate! We have been married for 26 years. Week before last I endured The Gambler (not a bad film, just not my thing) with my man. He offered up three movie choices. This one seemed like the only one I might have any interest in. We didn’t get popcorn because I told him not to blow his diet! It was our first movie together in a while. Even though I didn’t enjoy the movie, I enjoyed the outing together. Afterward we went to dinner and met our 16 year old and her boyfriend. Wow things have really changed in 26 years. Looking forward to the next 26!

    Kim, this is just as sweet and soul-bearingly honest as it could be! I love the contrast, don’t you, in how long-married people eventually become their “real selves,” while young marrieds are still on their best behavior, trying to please.

    Love — real love — has a way of encouraging folks to show their vulnerabilities with one another. Perhaps that’s why so many marriages fail, the fear of being that open (and of having one’s heart stomped on).

    I celebrated 30 years of marriage in November . . . and I did get him to the city for a low=key dinner in SoHo, where we also picked up those coveted Cronuts ordered by my daughter two weeks earlier. Oh, yes, we did see ‘Wild’ on New Year’s Eve . . .and I do not like buttered popcorn (though he does, and mostly accommodates me). You so wonderfully captured the details that change over the years, if not the love.

Going to the movies was a date, (as opposed to just seeing a movie.) The trips to the supermarket when we first lived together, (we were so excited!) lol, 8 years on it’s just the pattern of regular life, but as soon to be parents I know that’s all going to change again!

    Whoa, I’m way late here this week, but life has been crazy. I got a good chuckle when you went your separate ways. Hubby had no qualms about going to see Wild with me, he even read the book. It’s probably because we both like hiking and whatnot. I do draw the lines at video games and the war board games he likes to play. I just can’t get into those.

    Oh Kim. I love this. So much! I’ve been married 21 years this March, so I know exactly what you’re talking about. (Mine also would do (almost) anything for me when I’m not irritating the shit out of him.) 🙂

    And yes, you’ll always go home together. (And so will we.)

    xoxo

    I love this post.. I love how over time everyone can be more themselves and still be so happy together (and probably more so)

    OMG so so so totally relate to this!! I’ve been married only 8 years and we have a five year old (and we’re old, me 46 him 51 so maybe it’s like we’ve been married for much longer) but yeah… I remember when he watched anything with me. Also??? I so want to see Wild!!!
    xo much love.

    This really made me laugh, Kim! 😀 Mr, Liverpool sounds like a charmer, nonetheless, and going home together (♥) is the main thing. Hubby (who also has an accent – Italian) and I will be celebrating 42 years of marriage this August (together for 44 years, come October). He would refuse to go to a movie he had no interest in, as would I, but there are enough movies we both like, so we often compromise. Have a good weekend!

    I’ve been married 36 years and you could have almost been describing us. I did drag my husband to Selma last night. I think he enjoyed it in the end.

    I’ve never been married, but then maybe you got the last good one. 😉
