Old Age and Treachery Overcome Youth and Enthusiasm Every Time
Okay, I'll admit it. I watched the first Twilight movie on DVD at my Big Sister's urging. I liked it.
But I missed the second movie because I wasn't about to go to a theater and sit amongst hormonal teens slobbering all over the screen.
Big Sis came at me again, asking if I wanted to go see Twilight Eclipse at a theater in Austin this weekend.
I said no.
Then she clarified something for me.
It seems Austin has a movie theater that takes reservations and offers red leather recliners, a full food and alcohol menu and table service. Tickets cost $20 each.
I had to smile when I heard that.
What pimple-faced teenager has the dough to pay that much for tickies? Probably not too many, especially if it's a date and costs double that. And the recliners are all separate, so there's no whispering and giggling going on.
I still resisted until Big Sis said she'd already bought my ticket for me.
So it's settled.
Twilight Eclipse for grown-ups. I like it.
