We are naughty and we bring moms very large oversized purse filled with loot! Soda and candy all around, for the manageable Target prices. We justify it by buying the largest popcorn they have, the never ending bucket. "Wait, how much for puffed corn? Butter isn't extra, okay, load it up!" For us, the bottomless is a must. We filled it three times! I am telling you, the years ahead are scary, we can all eat!
We do the honorable thing and we don't bust out the hidden unmentionables until the lights are out. As soon as the previews start, the noisy opening of all the candy wrappers begins.
"I want my Skittles. No the Snickers."
"I want my Reeses first."
"Can I have my Starbursts?"
"Chocet, chocet, chocet!" (that's Matty saying chocolate in case it was hard to interpret)
Well so much for being discreet! And if that didn't give it away, then the exploding bottles of soda might. Erik bought small individual sprites for the kids, so four times over I had to open the pressurized bottles. Each one decided the jiggly ride in my humongous purse didn't sit well with them!
|It's funny how far away Erik and I had to sit from each other. We got everyone settled and then we laughed as we waved from the great distance!|
Yeah, I definitely know the people sitting in front of us had some complaints! But, really, if you as an adult are coming to watch a kids movie alone, you better come with some tolerance for the expected crowd! "Um, sorry sir, so sorry to bother your viewing of Mega Mind."
Really the kids did great and the movie was very funny! I am so glad we can finally do things like this as a family, without it ending in complete disaster!
