I had the pleasure of taking my girls and three borrowed girls to the movie this afternoon. With the November rains settling in, a movie date was a perfect way to spend the afternoon.
I arrived at the movie early with 4 of the girls, the other 2 arrived within minutes. The moms and I visited briefly. When the high school boy unlocked the theater doors all six girls bailed out of the van quickly and ran inside. I said goodbye to the moms, rolled up the windows and headed inside. (Re-read this paragraph...it is important later.)
- We lined up for the tickets...$38.00
- We lined up for the popcorn...$11.00 *I bought 2 XL's and split them into Ziploc baggies-I am that smart-Re-read this bullet too.
- I bought 7 sodas...$18.00
- We found our seats.
Grace and her friend chose front row seats.
Taryn and her friend chose back row seats.
Reagan, her friend and I settled into the middle.
About an hour into High School Musical 3, the high school theater employee was walking toward me. Hmm....the girls didn't seem to be causing any trouble. Hmm...did he see the jellybeans I snuck into the theater. Hmm...no that wasn't it.
"Ma'am, did you drive the van here?"
"You left your car running."
At this point, I wish it was about the smuggled jelly beans. I wanted to die. You should have seen the look on all three high school workers as I snuck out of the theater, found my car - unlocked and running, right where I left it. Hmm... Priceless?
Additional thoughts to ponder on this occasion:
- No wonder I only have 3 children. I'm not responsible enough for more.
- Thank goodness I married a Pollock as this type of behavior is expected.
- I live in a small town - so when I have these 'moments' my car is right where I left it.
- It may not be my 'natural' hair color anymore...but it's pretty obvious I am a true blonde.
