Yesterday the baby and I went to the weekly Stars and Strollers movie at our local theatre. I was in a bit of a rush and didn’t realize until the movie started that the theatre I had arrived at right on time was showing Eat, Pray, Love. I was expecting to see Nanny McPhee Returns. But I had my popcorn, and we were settled in, so I decided to stay even though I hadn’t planned on seeing Eat, Pray, Love.
About an hour into the movie, the baby started getting a bit fussy and I had absolutely no connection to the main character or what she was going through. (Seemed pretty selfish, really). And I realized that here we were, wasting time watching a movie we weren’t enjoying about living your life to the fullest – maybe we should escape the theatre and go to the park instead.
So we did.
