Focus on Gratitude: Day 12

Fridley Plaza 9The theater in my town is a little frowsy, a little slug-like, a bubble or two off plumb, but it’s mine.  Since the temperature is below zero today, the marquee could stay like this for a while.  It just adds to the fun to have to guess when the movie starts.

A classmate from high school works here.  She and I have gabbed over the popcorn and Junior Mints until I’ve missed previews (horrors!), but I love getting the skinny on flicks coming out from someone in the “biz.”  Makes me feel all insiderly and cool.  Plus, she’s a closet fan-girl, so we squee quietly (but with feeling) about the hotties on screen.

It’s not as easy to sneak into a second movie here, but I manage it once in a while.  Especially during the holidays when the lobby is full and the staff gets distracted by kid-vomit and jumbo Icees dumped in the aisles.  I have my ways.

    Ha! An end of the year confession! As “Miss Daisy” would say (as in Driving Miss Daisy), the prices they charge are highway robbery!
