And they talked like they just conquered Mt. Everest. Their individual sagas were filled with tales of pushing, shoving, running and fighting in the theater corridors. And at the end of it all, they were all abuzz about how beautiful it was.
Can’t help but give them their day. They after all, had the bragging rights to being among the first to have watched it.
I wish I could have taken the same trek yesterday, but I just don’t have the patience for waiting in line. No, it’s not my legs, joker. I’m just characteristically impatient.
I’m sure it will take weeks for the crowds to clear out, so I would still have to endure days of consciously evading the topic, lest I take out all the excitement in the experience.
But someone somewhere probably read my thoughts. From out of nowhere, this message was in my e-mail:
“We will be having a special screening of Spiderman 3 this coming Saturday, May 5, 6:30 pm. I will be sending 2 tickets for your company. The following are on our guest list:
Mr. Areo Andarino
Kindly anticipate as I will send the said tickets to your office. Hope to see you on Saturday!"
Ahh… Happiness can be just a ticket to the movies. And with no prospects of pushing, shoving, running and fighting in the theater corridors, I sure will have a better day.
Just got the ticket. And wonder of wonders, I-Max pa pala! At me extra pang isa!!
Hmm. Sino kaya i-invite ko he he.
