So, last night after leftovers for dinner, Wiley and I looked at each other, wondering what to do next. The sun wasn’t even down! We decided it might be the perfect time to see OUR FIRST MOVIE!
The movie we wanted to see started in about 20 minutes, and I live about 25 minutes away. We hurried, and I drove, naturally, because Wiley doesn’t speed. Not once, not ever.
We pulled into the movie theater parking lot at like 7:23. Here’s something about me: I HATE missing previews! I could watch movie previews all day, and if I feel rushed going into a theater and miss a preview or two, it severely bugs me.
Well, we decided to wait. OUR FIRST MOVIE should be perfect! Dinner before (or after, which I prefer), him driving slowly, no rush, time to pee, all the previews! We detoured to Muddy’s which I was really craving.
Then, since we were ALL the way in East Memphis from Midtown, we went to Fresh Market. There was a lonely shopping cart in the exact parking spot I wanted to park in. There were about a hundred open parking spots. Suddenly, it became this fun and hilarious game to inch my car up to the shopping cart. I secretly wanted to push it and let it go rolling carelessly through the lot. Inch by inch, I scooted my car up to the cart. Wiley even got OUT of the car to see how much closer I could get. He got back in the car. He coached me through this ridiculous touch-the-cart-with-my-car game. I kept tapping the brakes. It was absurdly funny. A man walked by. I still hadn’t touched the cart even though I was SO CLOSE to it. I started crying because I was laughing so hard. I FINALLY hit the cart with my bumper – just a little tap. And nothing happened, but we suddenly cheered and laughed like I had accomplished some amazing feat.
It was a really entertaining Wednesday night.
