I went with a few friends to see “Eclipse” the other night. We were going to have a ladies night out, a real treat, at a local theater pub. Don’t get excited, this is no PDX style, the movies are first run and full movie-going price. But you can get burgers or pizza and beer or wine delivered to your comfy seat. So exciting, as the last ladies night out I’d had was in March.
Once we’d all managed to liberate ourselves from our houses, leaving babes in the care of Dads, we found out that the theater was having some special event that was nothing like a terrible teenage vampire saga. Woe!
Calls were put in to husbands, only one of whom was available to do research for us. We found a showtime only half and hour later at a nearby mall and rushed on over. It was looking like I wasn’t going to be able to get my greek salad and wine. Boo. The good news was that Annie and Sarah had a different plan for dinner, and it was oh, so perfectly convenient and fitting. We had a high school dinner of the following:
Large bag of popcorn, refilled once, buttered
Nachos (meaning chips and that fluid cheese – delicious!)
Bag of Reese’s Pieces
Large Coke and Root Beer
Folks, it was so perfect. And, much to my surprise, there wasn’t a terrible, stomach-achy issue later. I guess I’m still close enough to 18! I think for dinner tonight I’ll have a bag of Cool Ranch Doritos and chocolate milk.
