In Line for “Superman Returns”

leave a comment »

My wife and I went to pick up our tickets last night.  We’re old fashioned that way.  Truthfully, I don’t like paying $.50 extra for a ticket online when I can just walk to the window and get it regular price. 

Back when Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire came out, we started going to newer films the Saturday after their premieres.  We get the tickets a week in advance and show up about two hours early for the show.  Usually we’re the first in line, and anyone else that’s already there is bound to be another fan, and you can make a quick friend for two hours before everyone takes their seats. 

Anyway, we walked up to the box office last night.  The first showing isn’t until 10PM tonight, but there at the door, we saw it—a two-room tent set beside, I kid you not, three guys sitting on a large “L” shape sofa under a sign that read LINE FOR SUPERMAN STARTS HERE. 

Geek boys, yes.  And there was a time when I would have tried to join them.  The thing is that, while my couch is very comfortable, it is not my preferred place of slumber. 

(Love ya, sweetie)
