First time for everything

The Mariners were doing their usual losing and it looked like they were only going to lose bigger and so I decided to go to the movie. I almost didn't but figured I needed the walk and that was the only way I was going to make myself do it. So I grabbed my movie knitting and headed out.

The movie I wanted to see Where Hope Grows was playing at my least favorite movie theater downtown. It's expensive and scuzzy. Today they wanted $10.75 for a fucking matinee! For that money, I want a non-sticky floor and comfortable seats that don't look like they were installed in 1965 - oh and a foot rest. I got none of that and the movie was unbelievably awful.

Turns out it was an evangelistic Christian message movie. It took me 15 minutes to realize it and then another 15 minutes to realize it was a terribly horrible not even close to subtle evangelistic Christian message movie that I could not sit through to the end so I left.

When I got down to the lobby, I stopped at the cashier's and asked for my money back and they gave it to me! I've walked out of movie's before but never has one been so bad in a theater so horrible at a price so expensive that I even considered a refund.

First for everything.

I walked home and the game was mercifully over so I got my exercise, and it cost me nothing. So win.

And the pickles are pickle-ing.
