It was sweltering day. It was too hot to go outside. We’d been at the pool every day that week. What to do, what to do? Then it came to me! We’d beat the heat by going to a free movie. When we arrived the theater was packed. There were exactly 3 seats left…in the front row…to the right of the screen. Have you ever tried watching a movie from a weird angle? Can you say neck ache? Ow!
I need not have worried. The kids watched the movie with unblinking eyes. No one complained about a neck ache. I’d planned to sit and watch, but I was surprised at how interested I was in the storyline of the movie. The kids and I were absolutely riveted by How To Train Your Dragon from the moment the movie started. We all enjoyed a brief respite from the sweltering heat and had fun in the process. Win!
