I was a bad, bad girl
I just did the most terrible thing. I have shocked myself to the core of my very being because I never violate rules or laws, but tonight I did. I really wanted to see "The Queen," so I went to the theater at 23rd and 8th. But the film was sold out. So I bought a ticket to "Little Miss Sunshine," which I've seen and loved and decided to see again. As I walked toward my theater, I saw that the theater next door was for "The Queen." So I ducked inside and took a seat. I was SO nervous. The theater was filling up and I was just waiting for the usher to come down the aisle with his flashlight asking everyone to present proof of having bought a ticket. I decided I would just say I'd lost my ticket if they asked me. But finally, the lights dimmed and the movie started and there I was illegally, immorally, and unethically sitting in a seat in which I was not entitled to sit. It was kind of thrilling really. I felt like an criminal or at least a bad seed. Let's hope I don't go to hell for this. It's the kind of thing I'd yell at my children for doing - and rightly so. If you happened to go to that movie tonight, but could not find a seat, then please accept my apologies. I was wrong and I'll never do it again. In fact, confessing the crime has been cathartic. Meanwhile, the movie was quite good and I'd highly recommend it.
