Right time, wrong place...

Jake and I are spending a couple of days in Atlanta just to get away from everything that waits for us at home. It's been so nice to not have to worry about being anywhere or do anything at a particular one expects anything from us and we are free to do what we want.

Last night we decided that we wanted to go see the new movie Robin Hood. We've both been looking forward to seeing it for several weeks and so we were really excited to actually go. We stopped to get subway on the way and thought we could fit both sandwiches and drinks in my purse to get them into the theater. WRONG! We got to the theater and easily got the sandwiches into my large bag, but could not get the drinks in there...waste of money! So we go and buy our tickets with giftcards that we both had leftover and only had to pay $1 to get into the movie...sweet! I agreed to buy a drink inside the theater for us to share and Jake bought popcorn as our side dish to our him :) We go into the Robin Hood theater and the movie had already started, which we thought was weird because we were only like 5 minutes late walking in and there were no previews. We started eating our sandwiches and watching the movie and we were totally lost as to what was happening and who everyone in the movie was! We kept asking each other questions and neither one of us knew the answers. We ate our sandwiches and munched on our popcorn and I finally just decided to accept what was happening in the movie for just what it was and stopped trying to figure it out and then the screen comes up that says "And the Legend Begins..." followed by the closing credits. I was like That's it? and Jake said yeah, these are the closing credits. I asked what time it was and it was only 10:05...we walked into the theater at 9:05...this movie couldn't possibly 1 hour! We couldn't figure out what was going on...we walked back outside and and noticed that there were two theaters that were playing Robin Hood and we had walked into the wrong one right in the middle of the movie! Crap! the next showing wasn't for another 35 minutes so we went outside and told the theater people what happened and they told us we could stay for the next showing. We did and in the middle of the second showing there was a commotion! Two rows back from us a guy was yelling that the guy behind him had punched him in the back of the head and like 5 police came into the theater and escorted them out...we left during the second showing at the part that we came in at during the first we saw the whole movie we just saw it backwards essentially. We had a good laugh over the whole thing and will now pay more attention to our theater number.

I love Jake
