It was 8am on a Sunday and I was up because I had set my alarm for very important plans. No, not brunch. Oh yeah, and other people were not involved. I made a date with myself to see the Lego Batman movie, showing at 9:45am. I decided to walk there for an added sense of "me time."
Also... my friends were not excited about this movie. There are some things that hurt my brain trying to comprehend and this is one of them. I don't fight it anymore. I just embrace the opportunity to sit alone in a theater with my kid's pack (smaller than "small" popcorn, candy, and soft drink in a cute box) and take in the animated visuals, clever storytelling, and laughter of kids with their supervising parental units all around me.
