Movie theater. Movie theater.
You are so expensive. It’s difficult to get amped up to go to the movies any more. The significant other and I got a couple of $25 movie gift cards for Christmas and finally went to the movies on Sunday – American Hustle about 2 months late.
We spent more than one gift card! And I snuck in my own popcorn! But the S.O. doesn’t make fun of my big purse any more because I also snuck in some Chipotle tortilla chips for him. Justified.
However, I did come up with a brilliant idea: popcorn detectors. They are like metal detectors, but they detect popcorn. Good for the movie theaters, really bad for me.
I then immediately started thinking of ways to beat the popcorn detector. I didn’t come up with an idea to beat that, because it’s too genius. I did, however, come up with an idea to sneak a flask into sporting events.
I was icing my knee when we went to the movies. I had a couple of bandages wrapped around my knee to keep the ice pack in place. Replace the ice pack with a plastic flask and bingo. If there’s a little metal in it: it’s just part of your bandage.
