So I suggested we wait a couple of weeks, and was met with furious pleading to go sooner. Jeffrey’s attitude about the movie is much like Jason’s:
And I have to admit that I’d like to see the movie, too.
So I gave the problem some thought, and realized that the world had moved on since 1996 — that I could buy tickets from the comfort of my own home and avoid the long lines at the theatre. A quick trip to Fandango followed, and now we’re the proud owners of three tickets to a weekend showing of the movie in question. Sure, there was a service charge of $1/ticket — but I would cheerfully pay more to avoid the insane lines at the local theatres!
(Oh, in case any of you don’t recognize the comic and to give credit where credit is due, it’s Bill Amend‘s Foxtrot.)
