I went to my childhood movie theatre last night.

Y’all have one of those, right? The movie theatre your mom had to drop you off at every weekend for like 6 years? Yeah I went to mine last night.

I haven’t been in over a year. It was a pleasant surprise to see that literally nothing has changed. I walked through the doors & my mind flashed to being 12 years old in a fitted, graphic tee from Delia’s with a bra full of Kleenex.

I remember that the cool thing was to go to the movies & make out. Girls who stuffed their bra until they were 17 did not have this luxury, however. I went for the cinematic experience. & to play the race car game in the arcade on occasion. It just didn’t make sense that you would pay for a movie ticket & then suck face the whole time. Though, I would not have been opposed to trying if the opportunity had ever freakin’ presented itself. But I’m over it, really.

Also, there was this one time my parents dropped me & a friend off to see Pootie Tang & I think I needed more structure in my youth.
