Shelle emailed me and said let’s go to the drive-in and see a movie and I said no. It’s too bloody hot and humid, there are too many mosquitoes, and it’s way past my bedtime. She said I was a buzz-kill so I changed my answer to yes. We took her kids and we saw Brave.
This time next year the Cottage View Drive-In will be a Wal-Mart.
But last night the remaining faithful were gathered to enjoy a beautiful night. The temps dropped, a little breeze picked up and everyone settled in for the show.
We were total rookies: no pickup truck or van, no folding chairs, no bug spray or rain gear. But Shelle brought popcorn, candy, soda, a blanket and a yoga mat and pretty soon we had ourselves set up. I made myself a bowl of popcorn (she brought bowls. Pink bowls.) sat myself down in the front seat and ate my popcorn. Then I ate Shelle’s popcorn. Sam and Lauren waited patiently for the show to start.
Last night was so much fun I didn’t even care that I was up way past my bedtime. It was worth it to see Sam and Lauren sitting on top of the car, watching a movie.
