I was in disbelief and thought, "HOW could anyone NOT like movies?", but rather than asking that, I asked, "So you don't like ANY movies?" He answered,, "No, I don't understand why people are so gung-ho about movies." I asked, "Are you just generalizing or is it that you don't like certain genres?" Knowing that he had an interest in politics, crime, mysteries, and that he enjoyed seeing plays, I couldn't help myself and asked, "Even documentaries or Broadway adaptations?" He reiterated that he didn't like ANY movies.
Knowing that he liked to see musical plays, I asked, "Do you like music?" He answered that he did and seemed bewildered that I would ask.
I said, "I was fearful you also suffered from ANHEDONIA!" He asked, "What's that?" I told him that was the term for people who do not like music. I said, "I don't know if there's a word for people who don't like movies; maybe anti-cineaste would be apt."
He asked, incredulously, "How could anybody not like music?"
I screaked, "POINT-COUNTERPOINT!"
He said, "I don't get it." I answered, "You know that "point-counterpoint" is a term used in debates and counterpoint is musical term and since I made a point comparing not liking movies and music......." I discontinued my thought when I saw that he wasn't understanding my humor and I said, "Oh, Hell, if I must explain the witticism, then it is futile!"
