We're talking about badly-dubbed martial arts movies here
Among the sillier aspects of living with a girl who remembers being my ex-boyfriend is the petty things Carter chooses to get jealous about. For example, it's been tough for me and Doug to get together and try to put that uncomfortable last date behind us, so when he called this morning and asked what I was up to, I said I had to work until about 9:30, and I was sort of kind of planning on going to the Midnight Ass-Kicking show at the Coolidge after that. He'd never heard of it, but thought it sounded cool.

I just told Carter what I was up to, though, and he chose to pout. He said it was "our thing". I tried to point out that I'd gone to these movies with other guys, including Kurt, and that I'd gone with Jen before that. Heck, I think one of the Martin-me's last dates with Maggie was going to one of those shows. But does that matter? No. He started going with me, so in his mind it's "our thing".

I told him he was free to call Ravi or whoever and I wouldn't mind, but was told that that wasn't funny. Should have guessed as much.
