First off, let me start off by saying that I know it is not nice to almost karate chop someone. Also, I do not actually know karate, so if I did hit you, it probably wouldn't have been any good.

I know that is not much of an apology (and honestly, this whole thing may not seem like one), but let me lay out what happened when I almost hit you.

I'll start off by saying that it was my mistake to have gone to the movies at night and purposely see a movie that I had a feeling would scare me. To be fair, I did not know the movie was going to make me jump as much as it did.

So, see what happened is that you almost got karate chopped by someone that has absolutely no belts in karate, because as I was exiting the theater 9 door, BOOM, there you were.

Imagine going through a haunted house and something unexpectedly jumps out at you, this is how I felt.

It did not help that the "scary" characters in the movie were humans with creepy smiles, so seeing you after with a smile on your face just made it all more real. Another thing to take into consideration, was that the end credits of the movie I had watched played the most terrifying music and sounds (seriously, some of the sounds sounded like minor screaming). I was trying to get out of that theater as quick as I could, still terrified from the movie.

To be honest, I don't know why jumping and getting my hands ready to do some karate is my go-to move, but weirdly it is.

As far as I can tell, this has not been a very good apology. I am truly sorry that I almost karate chopped you and that I too had startled you as you were trying to enter the theater next to the one that I was in.

I have learned my lesson, and I do not plan on going to see newer horror movies while the sun is down or I just need to realize that there will be other people in the theater walking around as well.

I am sorry if I scared you with my karate hands, and I hope that you enjoyed your movie.
