B and I wanted to see The Hunger Games, so we offered our neighbors a babysitting swap. We did it all in one day. Things never seem to go quite as planned for us. Something usually gets in the way. B went shooting down in Rocky Ridge with some buddies in the morning and was supposed to get back by one. The plan was for us to catch the 1:40 showing and then our friends would go to the 6:00 show. Well, B's friend got a flat tire on the way home, throwing everything off, and the time kept getting pushed back an hour, then another half hour, then another half hour. . . .
He ended up getting home at 4:00!! (Luckily our friends were flexible.) I had a change of clothes ready for him, so he changed in the car while I booked it to the theatre for the 3:50 show, which we were a little late to. We watched the movie and booked it home so our friends could make it to the 7:00 show and B could get to a prior engagement (which he was nearly an hour late to. oops!)
Things don't always go as planned, but we made the best of it. We thought the movie was great and stayed very true to the book. Even though it was a bit (VERY) rushed, we enjoyed our little time in the theater together.
