Movies and blankets

I don't get it. Mind you, I'm not a big movie fan but I see so many people who, when watching, seem to require a blanket. That includes my Californian grandson who normally only dons a shirt when going out.

Last night our other, Scottish, grandson was staying and, clad in his fleecy dressing gown (I was lathered in just a thin shirt) asked for a blanket in order to watch TV.

    :lol: No idea at all Sticky. Maybe a throwback to a comfort blanket, :? in case it is a slightly scary movie.

    The thoughts of having anything near me, that is fleecy, is horrifying, unless in the depths of winter.

    Popcorn and chocolates, now they would be an essential :D:D

    PLEASE, Aidan, may I watch movies at your house :lol: Actually, we could just skip the movies and watch the popcorn and chocolate instead :wink:

    Barbara, maybe you're right but the heat :shock: Especially at this time of year. I'm chucking everything off when I'm in bed at night never mind on the sofa during the day :lol:

    Absolutely Sticky, forget the movies, we will just eat chocolates and popcorn. I am sure Barbara will join us. Cup of T, some nibbles, cool breeze, perfect. :D:D

    Similarly, why do supposedly adult people cuddle cushions? DD

    PS. Popcorn? Salted every time.

    Something to anchor hands that aren't fiddling with a phone?
    Easy care pet (since cuddling a dog or cat seems to be an alternative)?

    The comfort blanket thing has more to do with our (grown up) children, as do pizza deliveries, boxsets, media, a b c d celebs, love island and all the other mindless cr£& on tv.
