A few days ago, when my parents decided that they were indeed heading down towards us in their RV, my mom called to talk to me. She wanted to make sure that I hadn’t seen That Movie yet. When I asked her what movie she was talking about, she got a little flustered with me.
“What movie, Mom?” I asked
“YOU know…the one about the end of the world”
“You know which one I’m talking about.” Mom insisted. “They’ve been advertising it like crazy on all the TV channels. It’s about the end of the world”
Instead of reminding her that I rarely watch TV, I told her that I hadn’t seen the movie yet. She was thrilled that I had waited to see it with her. (OoooKaaay Mom…).
Yesterday when I talked to her again, she wanted to make sure that I was available to see it with her first thing on Wednesday. I let her know that I wasn’t working and could take her to see it. Then she insisted that I had to run out and get tickets immediately so that we didn’t have to worry about That Movie getting sold out. Somehow I don’t think a Wednesday matinee is going to get sold out at all the movie theaters around here.
Although I can’t help but wonder if I should hunt down some tickets ahead of time. I’m just a little bit nervous because I’m pretty sure if I couldn’t get tickets, it would be the end of the world…
