Sometimes you just need to sit in a dark theatre in the middle of the afternoon, shortening your life expectancy with a bag of movie theatre popcorn. I realize how privileged I am to have this option, and believe me it is not a privilege that I take lightly. Not like driving or voting.
All the stars are aligning for a long overdue movie afternoon tomorrow. The Resident Offspring has the day off from her summer gig at Value Village where she has been retrieving unmatched stilettos from the sweat pants aisle, staring down unruly kids whose mothers have dumped them in the furniture section while they try on blouses in Housewares, and acting as de facto Keeper of the Washroom Key - a role that wields a great deal of power, as you can imagine. It's also supposed to rain.
Bridesmaids is in the cards, I think. Chick flick with fart jokes? Perhaps, but I am willing to find out.
What movie would you see if you were given the afternoon off,
with express orders to go to the movies?
What was the last movie you saw at a theatre?
