Last Friday was an out-of-school day for our 1st-grader, which of course meant that we had to plan something super fun for the first segment of Fun Family Friday.
We chose a movie. The Lorax, in fact.
The boys began F-cubed with a favorite treat: riding in the “real back”. It’s always a little alarming when I pop open the back to find this.
Two ninjas throwing gang signs at me. I’m so out of my element.
They were outta there like a shot.
I had some “free passes” to AMC. The quotations marks there are intentional, since “free passes” means different things based on the type of movie you’re trying to see.
For instance, an IMAX 3D version of movies needs a little negotiating.
Seems as though the “free passes” trade only knocks off a bazillion dollars, leaving $6 per ticket still owed.
I don’t even know what that means exactly, but I forked over a $20 and called it even. Sorta.
I’m more confused now than then. Sheesh.
The extra coinage has to be for the super fancy IMAX 3D glasses, which are, IMHO, muy bien better than the regular 3D glasses.
Yep. Muy, muy better.
$947,562 later, we had popcorn and M&M’s and Gatorade and were good to go, which was also part of the F-cubed plan according to the smallest of the two, there. I won’t tell you that this was at 9:45 a.m.
I was still on my coffee IV.
And that is all.
BTW, the movie was awesome. A must see, I would say, but I do get a little mesmerized with pretty, swirly colors.
And perhaps also Zac Efron.
It was also nice that the town was named, “Thneedville”, since Ewan hath a lithp and would have thaid it that way anyway.
So… that really is all.
