I now have great reluctance to ever choose the flick when seeing a movie with friends. How do you cope with the trauma and embarrassment of choosing a horrible one? I mean, if you pick a blah one or one with a dumb ending...not a big deal. I'm talking about picking one that is so bad that it makes your friends physically sick!
We were so excited to get out with some good friends. Popcorn, soda everything good and healthy. Movie starts. 20 minutes in; I'm thinking...What is this? I'm hoping I just hate it and can suffer through it quietly. As movie continues, anxiety sets in like a thick cloud hovering over our big, comfy, movie seats that have rocking capabilities. 30 minutes in; people are leaving the theatre nauseated.
Are you serious? Who makes money off this kind of movie? Confusion as we leave the theatre. Applebees desert helps displace the awkwardness of the moment. But, it's too late. The wound runs deep and resurfaces it's ugly head when a girls night out brings us another similar misfortune.
FIGHTING BACK: We now have a code word "Hobby Lobby" If the movie sucks, we will attempt to get our money back and spend it at Hobby Lobby or another place that never seems to fail us.We will take action against these rediculous plots.
We will sit still in our comfy theatre chairs no longer. We will refuse this embarrassment. We will refuse giving our good money to crap.

Will it stop??!!
If it snows one more day...I'm serious. I cannot stay inside all day every day. I finally decided, snow or no snow, get dressed we're going out. They look pretty upset about it, don't they?
I am learning that one of my most important jobs is keeping Jonezie alive.
Pray for him.
