And then I had an accidental lesbian encounter at the movies


Hi.  You don’t know me, but I’m the woman at the movies who accidentally groped your boob. Here’s the deal.  I had to pee and so I was in a hurry to run out and get to the bathroom so I didn’t miss anything, and I had my hand out at arm level to push open the door of the theater and then I heard vomiting behind me and so I turned around to see who was throwing up, and that’s why I didn’t notice that you had opened the door (probably on the way back from the bathroom yourself) and that’s why my hand was out and I was rushing forward and inadvertently grabbed your bosom.  I apologize if this was your first lesbian experience and it was accompanied by the soundtrack of vomiting, but that was really more the fault of the movie than me.  Also, I wouldn’t even mention it except that when I accidentally grabbed your boob I felt something mildly lumpy.  It’s probably nothing but you might want to get yourself checked out.  Also, I often get popcorn stuck in my bra during movies so it could totally be that.  Or maybe you keep your phone in there.   Me too.  But technically that can cause cancer since they say that phones cause brain cancer and if you keep them near your boobs they probably cause boob cancer?  Except, wouldn’t phones cause ear cancer if it was really the phones fault?  Because you never hear of ear cancer.  And now I’m confused.  Probably because I’ve had too much to drink.  Which is why I had to go to the bathroom in the first place.  FULL CIRCLE.

I’m just saying, check your boobies.  For both of our sakes.  Also, sorry about the groping, again.

  6. I guess there are worse ways of having a lesbian encounter than accidental boob grope-age to the sound of barfing…? Always look on the bright side, and all that.


    P.S. For her sake, I really hope that lump you felt was just some popcorn.

  7. Way to go, me. I’m so sorry I mistyped your name.

  8. So I lost my eyesight back in 2008 and my God did I feel up a lot of women when they did human guide with me before I got my guide dog. I never felt lumps though. And then my friend got a boob job and I was like, but how can I check them out? So she put my hands on them. That was weird.

But hey, you might have just saved her life, or pointed out the embarrrassing popcorn-in-the-bra. I forget where I was going with this. Either way, I think that could only happen to you.

    #1 – I need to know what movie so I never see it. EVER. I hate vomiting.

    #b – I was diagnosed with a skin cancer this week (yes, I’m calling it a cancer, like how some people call it “the cancer” and whisper while saying it), so in addition to feeling yourself up, please do wear your sunscreen. And check out your body for suspicious looking moles. This fvcker crept up on me all sneaky like somewhere that I can’t see it (the back of my left arm), so USE A MIRROR and look everywhere.

  18. I love me some Jenny Lawson!
    Can I go to the movies with you next time? Please?

  29. I’m sure she understands it was not your intent to feel her up.

    Personally, I’m amused when people accidentally nudge a boob or graze a butt and suddenly panic, like they’re thinking I’m gonna start hollering “SEXUAL ASSAULT!!” or something. I realize a) accidents happen, and b) both my boobs and my ass occupy a not-insignificant amount of space. Really, I’m more impressed when people don’t nudge them, especially in cramped quarters. It rather denotes a pretty decent DEX score.

  30. See, ticket prices have gone up but so have the amenities. Nice job.

  34. I have accidentally grabbed boob on more than one occasion. It’s always awkward and I always assume the woman I’ve felt up thinks I’m doing it to see what full-grown boobs really feel like.

    Also, that is the best argument against the whole cell-phone-causing-cancer thing I’ve ever heard.

  36. I think I would’ve been surprised, but not aghast. Not the worst random thing to happen to a boob o’ mine (that, to date, was probably my dog stepping on my nipple when I was laying on my side in bed, holding the blanket up for her to lay down).

    So…what movie was it?

  42. She did it on purpose. I know; my boobs seem to molest people all the time. It’s probably because, being a 38dddd, they like to move around a lot, you know, just checking out the rest of the world. Boobs are just inquisitive by nature, and really big ones are like big-footed puppies just bumbling into unsuspecting people’s hands. Thank you for petting them instead of just shoving them down.

  68. My friend and I both got felt up by a lady passing out flyers in Hong Kong this week. Neither of us mentioned it at the time but later we were all “that lady felt me up!”. We decided we hope it was good for her and maybe since my friend and I were together she just assumed?

  70. This reminded me of how I felt someone up this summer…I’m horrible at the European kiss-hug, and a woman gave me a kiss hug while I was sitting. In turning around to reciprocate, I ended up with my hand fully on her boob for a long time. I truly had no idea that it was there (not a big bust). I forgot about it. A couple weeks later I met her for a group dinner and she totally ignored me. I couldn’t figure out why, until I remembered my accidental lesbians moment.

  71. So we went from movie, to boob groping, to breast cancer commercial, to peeing…

    Let’s see…did I leave anything out? O.o

  72. Thanks for the apology and for the heads up on the lump. You’re my hero!

  74. it’s so funny you should mention running to the bathroom during movies, because I just found the perfect app for movie peeing this week. It’s called RunPee. I am totally not making this up. it tells you the best times to leave the movie theater to pee, how long you have to pee, and how long it will be until the next best time to pee. not only that, if you sync it to the movie it will tell you what’s happening while you’re in the bathroom. someone is brilliant 🙂

  75. Did you not consider that it may not have been a cancerous lump? She may be one of these people who takes her pet mouse to the movies and you have have just crushed the wee beasties head in your attempt to give vent to your lesbian feelings that may be surfacing due to all the silly questions that Victor has been letting loose at you recently. She no doubt, would not want to ‘out herself’ as sneaking an unpaid audience member into the theatre and therefore had to sit through the rest of the movie as her poor dying pet expired!

    But she should still check for lumps, just in case!

    I just happen to see a link to this on my friend Felicia’s FB(Felicia’s legend or something like that is her blog…I use to blog, but I suck. My life is totally boring!)
    But OMG I LMAO so loud my dog’s were thinking I was having some kind of seizure or something. My son already thinks I’m weird, but he’s a teenager and I think all teenage boys think their mom’s are weird to an extent. I’m going to read some of your other posts and if I don’t get any house work done, I’m gonna blame it on you,k? You don’t mind do ya? You can blame your next fiasco on me or use me as an alibi or something….Have a great Saturday and thanks for the laughs hun! I needed them today!

  139. I found this site after reading the Beyonce story on Pinterest several months ago. Since then, I’ve been reading the archives and currently in the middle of your book, and you are by far, one of the funniest people i have never met! I love to read in the bathtub and find myself totally laughing out loud at some of your stories. You are extremely talented at blogging and storytelling and maybe even some other stuff I don’t know about…… Keep up the good work!

  140. More importantly, the vomiting part? We need to understand THAT part too, dear Jenny!

  143. If I had to walk into vomit smell I’d consider an accidental grope uplifting. Anyway, what the heck movie was it?

  144. Jeez … “AN” accidental lesbian encounter … not “AND”. I hate it when my fingers go off on their own.

  145. I just finished your book today. I am so hooked on your crazyness!

  146. I <3 you so hard. Oh. My. Goodness.

    OMG this totally happend to me before! I totally grabbed the boob of a person sitting next to me (but thought it was her arm).

  149. Too many cocktails once gave me an unnatural appreciation for toes. A foot fetish one might say. Yes, my friend is still talking to me and yes, I ‘thought’ about joining AAA, for about 10 seconds.

  150. You totally may have saved that woman’s life. I mean, if she knows who you are and reads your blog. Otherwise, let’s hope those lumps were just misplaced popcorn. My friend keeps her phone in her bra. I’ve always been jealous of that. I’ve never been able to keep anything in my bra. My friend pulls her phone, her money and her car keys out of there. It’s like watching Mary Poppins pull lamps out of her luggage. I have to force myself not to stare. It’s kind of amazing.

  156. I thought I was the only one who keeps her iPhone in her bra. Seriously, WTF is UP with these clothing manufacturers that don’t put pockets in women’s clothing? Especially business-type women’s clothing? I know my grandmother said never put things in your pocket because it just makes your hips look bigger (and would REMOVE the pockets from my pants if she had to alter them anyway), but where the hell am I supposed to carry my phone if I already have a pen, and maybe a file folder or two, and my security card key, and maybe even my car keys? I can’t carry my PURSE from room to room when I’m at the office!

    I believe that lack of pockets in women’s apparel is one of the reasons that women hit this glass ceiling and can’t make it to the VP corner office. It’s because we look STUPID with a handful of stuff, and then have to grope around in our blouse looking for our phone when it starts playing Darth Vadar’s theme from Star Wars. Don’t tell me to try the vibrate mode, I already did. Darth Vadar looks less weird that vibrating boobies. That’s not the job I’m bucking for.

    Holly Folly recently posted A Letter From the Morrow Jungle..

  162. I read this to my 14 year old daughter ( I read her most of your book while I snorted and giggled because I can’t help myself), and she said you have the most extraordinary experiences. I said that this one wasn’t so unusual – I’ve certainly done this before. I explained that when you share these off-beat events in your life, it makes us all feel better about our own lives. And then I realized you’re the Erma Bombeck of our time. I still remember her story of being mostly naked in the OB/GYN’s office and getting her nose caught in a net curtain. Laughed until I wet myself.

  163. And to Geek Goddess: I hear ya. Fortunately, I’m in the military, and I get to wear ABUs. LOVE my multitude of pockets. Great for hiding girl stuff.

  164. Also—boob sweat. That shit will short out your phone. All bad.

    That sounds an awful lot like my college days, but that was back in ’68 so it’s pretty much of a haze.

  171. I had one in the elevator at work last week, with someone I know. I said “thanks, it’s been a while” and went my merry way. Good to know it happens all the time to others!

  172. Thank you for reminding EVERYONE (who should!) to get their mammogram!
    I did on a whim 4 years ago, and am still here to tell you to do it!

  173. ANY boob encounter is a good encounter.

  174. This happens so often to me I sometimes keep a daily tally in my head. 13, if you were just wondering what is the highest I have ever counted.

    I thought that was kind of spooky too. The number. Not the boob touching. That’s totally okay.

    I was up to feed the baby and couldn’t get back to sleep, so I read your blog, but I have to stop or else my laughing will wake everybody up.

  179. When I lived in London it was quite common to encounter boob to boob touching while we were all crushed together on the tube during rush hour…at first I apologised and just got a look of “pffft, it happens all the time here”, after a while I’d just look down and give the look of “yep, my tits are huge!”.

    Accidental boobage touching happens.

    Then again, if I just visit your blog and read your tales, you’re not in danger of being sprayed by a beverage that’s been expelled from my nasal cavity. Plus there’s the whole scorpions living in Texas thing.

    I’ll just keep coming back here for my daily laugh until you decide to move to New York state.

  181. She probably knew she needed a mammogram and just hung by that door through the whole movie, just waiting for some clumsy, accidental grope to save her some money on medical bills. I hope that woman realizes that she still needs to go to a real doctor TOO, though.

  182. I know what it’s like to live inside your mind. You have my understanding and sympathy. Isn’t “boob” a funny word?

  183. You are the cheese to my macaroni! (I just saw the end of Juno on tv) Seriously, I cannot stop laughing. And way to go w/ the breast cancer awareness! I had an accidental butt grab, then an accidental boob touch in the same day… it was a little awkward. Made me question a few things! 😉 haha

    Thank you for blogging!

  184. So I think you have to be famous and a woman to get away with accidental gropings, because whenever it happens to me people just yell pervert and chase me and hit me.

  185. I can only read the blog and a few of the comments. Because, you see, once I have read the blog and a few of the comments I’m laughing so hard that my eyes are squinty and leaking tears and thus, my eyesight already being less than stellar, I, literally, can no longer see to read the comments. Best. Way. To. Cry. EVER.

    Man, the only thing I got at the movies was someone else’s hair left all over the head rest. Ew.
    Seriously, it was like someone was scalped in there.

  191. I almost never get groped when I go to the movies…..

  192. If only everyone were courteous enough to suggest getting your boobs checked after an inadvertent groping. I imagine, if this became a movement, we wouldn’t need all the of raise awareness campaigns about breast exams. Some random stranger in a theater would do it for us.

  193. I accidentally groped a boob once and I immediately apologized.

  198. Allow me to jump in on the “worst thing to ever happen to my boobies” sidetrack…
    I played bells in my marching band & pep band. Then one day we had three bells players show up and no cymbals player. I traded off for variety–bells are heavy, so I didn’t think twice — but it’s a totally different way of holding the weight and my arms got tired and…. halfway through the Alma Mater I caught myself between two cymbals. I will never EVER again be amused by a guy who’s gotten wallopped in a private place… I went through pretty much the same motions. To this day I don’t know who picked up the cymbals to finish for me.

    Think of it the next time you hear the Star Spangled Banner. Is that cymbalist wearing protection!?

  199. Okay, I am confused. Was someone in the movie vomiting? Or was it someone in the theater vomiting? Because if it was someone in the theater that’s way more disgusting or disturbing for the lady walking into the theater than your groping her.
    I think it’s funny that we all tend to freak a little if we accidentally touch someone’s boob or butt or package. But if we touch an elbow or a shoulder, we just say excuse me and keep on moving. It’s not like the motive was different or the intent was sinister just because it was a “sexual” body part. But it’s awkward, ain’t it?
