another polar vortex day
another movie adventure
four neighborhood kids
lots of action
lots of adventure.
“you never forget the neighborhood kids you grew up with.”
in the midst of the polar vortex
a call goes out
a friend offers to drive us all to the movies
preston- holding down the fort at the theater
sells us popcorn, beverages, and tickets
menu offers a movie combo of cocktails and popcorn
the movie was great
the company was great
felt like we were skipping school
to just have a day of fun
we forgot about the polar vortex outside
we laughed and cried
we’ll never tell who chose which beverage:
coffee, tall soda, sippy-cup ‘o wine.
choose your own adventure.
everyone needs someone who will call them and say,
“get dressed, we’re going on an adventure.”
early mother’s day surprise movie present
who remember prince and his music
as a part of their days
growing up with me
watched him on the big screen
sang and danced
with 1,000 other people
of all ages
who remembered him too
and we even
smuggled in food
in a big purse
just like the days
when we didn’t have a lot of money
but we did have
a lot of dollar movies
a lot of music
a whole lot of love.
happy mother’s day to all who mother
and to those who really know their mothers.
going to the movies
with one of my
six little grandies,
for her very first time.
she was all dressed up
new sparkly too-big blue shoes with tiny clicking heels
shiny movie star jacket
polka dot tights
cornflower blue ruffly skirt
tumbling down curly hair
full of so much excitement.
we were the only two in the whole theater
even if we weren’t
it would have felt like we were.
