Day 1: I make with the post [Mar. 1st, 2014|06:54 pm]
Zoethe
I'm writing now only because of my own stupidity. Erin and I are having an evening together, and when I found out she hadn't seen Frozen I determined that this must be rectified. We headed out from sushi dinner to the closest theater with an evening show--a theater rather some distance away. When we got here, we were going to go have a drink first. But I glanced at my watch and it was 6:55, only 20 minutes until the movie. So we headed in and got tickets.

It wasn't until we were settled into the theater that I realized that it had been 6:35. Six. THIRTY. Five.

Well then.

So here we sit in an empty theater playing with our phones. My senior moment of the day.

Oy.

Having done that almost exact thing before, I can sympathize.

I hope you have a great evening aside from that, though!

You can refer to moments like that as "brain lapses" or, better yet, "brain farts." (I do.) Can happen at any age!

Be glad you don't live in France. At this point I now routinely show up 20 minutes after the scheduled start time - because even before we get to the previews there are least 20 minutes of ads for cars and smart phones.

The ads here are shown prior to the announced start time. I would HATE that.

You just have to adapt - but it is annoying until you figure out the system.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. My watch is also my workout computer. Also, I chat with Dick Tracy on it all the time. ;-)
