All alone when the lights went out...

Divine hubby and Chase were chomping at the bit to see the new Star Wars Clone thingie today. Frankly, that's the LAST thing I would spend money to see, but, I wasn't going to be left out of all the fun! So, I went with them and saw a different movie.

All by myself.

And when I say "all by myself," I really mean it.
Well, that's silly, I know you are thinking, of course you meant it.
No, I mean ALL.BY.MY.SELF.
As in, there was absolutely not one other living, breathing soul in the theater with me (except potentially bugs or vermin of some sort, but let's not think about that).

It was kinda creepy - I kept wondering if someone had snuck in and was secretly sitting behind me. I also felt a little self-conscious because when I laughed...I truly WAS the only one laughing. I'm such a rebel, I didn't silence my cell phone either. (gasp)

The usher (who knew they had those anymore?) came in twice with his flashlight, and both times, I waved and said (out loud) "It's still just me!" I know, I'm a dork.

It was fun - I highly recommend it if you've never experienced such a thing. Made me wonder, though, if I hadn't given them my $6 (matinee, ya know), would they have run the movie anyway to an empty house? Kinda like the whole tree falling in the forest with no one to hear it...nah, it's really not.

In my defense, I did state that I was a dork earlier in the post.

And what did you see? Dying to know...

Whoops - forgot to mention that little detail! I saw Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2. I highly recommend it if you are an 18-yr-old girl or if you ever were one. I absolutely loved every silly, melodramatic, improbable minute of it! Don't take your hubby, take a girlfriend!

I want to see Traveling Pants 2. I read all the books. I really like how the author didn't create perfect heroines. They're real people with real struggles.
