Date Night Magic: A Review

"Stop looking at me like that. I always wear the giant, feathered hat on date night."

Morning Readers,

I'm over the moon right now. Not only is the hot coffee I'm drinking actually hot, and my leopard-print robe passably clean to wear another day, but the reviews are in. After I cheated on my hair stylist this past Saturday, Husband and I decided to celebrate my disloyalty, put on our socilizin' clothes and head somewhere I could whip my new hair back and forth within arms reach of buttered popcorn.

We decided to see Django Unchained, because nothing says, "re-connecting through quality time, thoughtful conversation, and a dash of hand-holding" like Quentin Tarantino. I thought our outing was a fantastic success, but I'll let the reviewers do the talking...


Date Night Magic:
A Review

"Initially, I thought she wanted to buy tickets, but then she tried to climb over the ticket booth and kept whispering, "Don't tell the children where I am." --  Admissions Worker

"We weren't going to throw her out or anything, but I've never heard anyone scream, "Four-fifty for a bag of Peanut M&Ms?" so loud before. It didn't get weird until she started feeling the consistency of each bag. Maybe we should've thrown her out." -- Concession Worker

"Do you really need all that licorice? Two pounds seems like a lot." -- Husband

"She kept splashing water out of the sink and singing, "No one can find me in this bathroom." Oh, was she not with the bus full of mental patients? Huh. Then that whole ordeal I heard coming from the stall is really unsettling." -- Girl in Bathroom

"Is that who that was? It's really hard to focus the screen when someone's jumping up and down, yelling, "Honey, look. It's a moving picture." -- Projectionist

"I feel a little bad. She kept throwing candy at Leonardo DiCaprio and shouting, "Why are you doing that? You're a bad man. This isn't Titanic II." Seems like somebody may have sold the movie to her from a different angle." -- Guy Sitting Eight Rows Back

"Is this not the re-make of the re-make of the re-make of Pride and Prejudice? I was expecting something Collin Firth-y." -- Paige

"I mean, we'll let them come back, but I'd really like it if she'd come back and clean up that mess in the bathroom." -- Theater Manager

It actually was a fabulous movie, and I highly recommend it. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to whip my hair and find some M&Ms to go with my eighth cup of coffee.

Until Next Time, Readers!

    1. I prefer total seclusion, Teri, but once Husband lets me out, things get crazy.

    1. It's an elusive animal, Jessie. I like to think of it as the Lock Ness Monster. You see it every once in a while, but most people don't believe you.

    2. I haven't had a Nessie sighting in like 18 months which, hey, is kinda weird when I think on it, because that was right around my first daughter sighting.

  3. A word of advice if there should ever be another date night--wear a mask & use an alias (like I used to do)!!

    1. Finally, I can re-use my Wonder Woman costume. How did I not think of this before. Now, to find where I put those tights.

  4. If you don't mind, I'd like to accompany you on your next night out. Sounds like a good time.

    I know it's been a while, but you're supposed to carry a giant purse to smuggle in all your treats. Remember that for next time.

    1. I had a giant bag of Peanut M&Ms ready to go, but walked out of the house without them. One of the worst moments of that day. Then I came home and ate them. All was not lost.

  5. Paige, I'd rather watch you at the theatre than any movie in the theatre. That sounds totally creepy. This is probably as good a place as any to end this comment.

    1. Bethany, I wished you lived closer so we could go see movies every other day. Now, go talk to your husband about moving to KC and get back to me.

  6. Loved your take on "Date Night". Seriously, how long has it been for us. God only knows, but now you reminded me, we are probably due!! :)

    1. I'm not totally sure when the last time was that we got out. But I remember 2007 being a really good year.

  7. Oh, how I enjoyed this...almost as much as you enjoyed the ambience of a public restroom sans kidlets.

    ps - Is that really you in that pic? Tres chic, hair whipper!

  8. I wish that was me in that picture. I also with I could really find that hat. It'll be a tireless search through the flea markets, to be sure.

  9. Paige, you crack me up. And yes, $4.50 is a lot even for the deliciousness of peanut M&M's.

    1. Highway robbery, I tell you. Highway robbery.

  10. Genius. This is why I only watch movies in my own living room, though - although it sure would be nice to have somebody else clean up the stuff I throw at the screen for once.

  11. Oh Paige. I love it when you get to get out of your house. Such fun tales of adventure. :)

  12. Oh, this is fantastic. Next time you get to go on a date (in 2014?) you should go dancing. It would be fun to read about you whipping your hair back and forth while requesting songs by *NSYNC (and no, I'm sorry to tell you they are not still a group). Chin up - I'm here to tell you it gets better. Eventually. :)
