Y’all remember being like 14 and the biggest part of your week was looking forward to going to see a bleak movie with about 18 of your closest friends on a Friday?
It didn’t matter what movie you were seeing, it was all about being SEEN. Who were you with, who would you be meeting up with? Questions that could define your eighth grade social status!!!!!!
Some of the first events I ever coordinated, truly. Whose mom is taking? Whose dad is picking up? Do we want to go to the Chili’s first? Can someone borrow one of their parent’s cell phones so we can call when the movie is over?
The greatest delight, without fail, came from the concessions area. For the whole of my adolescent movie-going career, I waltzed up to the candy counter of the theatre and ordered a box of chocolate chip cookie dough bites. PLEASEEEE tell me you know what I am talking about. They came in a red box and were bite-sized lil nuggets of love that breathed life into my awkward, middle school body. When the movie theatre stopped selling them, I would have to stop at the Walgreens around the corner to stock up and sneak in to the theatre. I committed crimes for this love! I think theatre officials caught on to this and now my beloveds simply cannot be found.
Except I just searched Amazon and apparently you can get a 30-pack for $31. That is a BARGAIN.
