An Email From My Mother
I had to share this with y’all because, well, you just can’t make this stuff up. Here is an email my mom sent her sisters, my siblings, and myself. Reason #95874 why my mom is awesome:
Well, the group of ladies in my care group went to Cinemark tonight to see “The Wizard of Oz”. (Mendy’s bday) Apparently this is the 70th anniversary and they were “releasing it in HD” whatever that means. So, we get there and it takes them 30 minutes to “get it set up”. It was on DISH – just like watching it at home, I guess, if you have DISH network – whatever THAT is. I thought it would fill the whole screen but it didn’t. Oh well, we finally got it going and then RIGHT AS THE WIZARD IS GIVING OUT THE GIFTS, THE SCREEN GOES BLANK!!!! We sat there with a full theater and listened as the show finished. No picture….needless to say there were some unhappy people, but no one was rude or mean (can you believe it???)
We stood in line for about 10 minutes and they gave EVERYONE 2 free movie coupons AND an $11 refund (that was the price – I know CRAZY!!!!)
We all had shirts that had a character’s name on it. I was the Tin Man. Mendy, the bday girl was Dorothy of course and I made her flip flops with red sparkly ribbon so it would look like she had on red slippers. Will send picture when I get it.
Anyway, I wanted to apologize to MY KIDs if I scarred you in any way by making you watch that movie at any time in your life. I always remembered how Lindsay said she hated it cause it was scary (she shared that when she was probably 18!) and I couldn’t figure it out. After watching it through different eyes – I can REALLY see that movie would scare children! What were we thinking??? Flying monkeys and a green wicked witch???? I am sorry if you were scarred, kids! Love you!
Have a good day tomorrow,
And for your viewing pleasure…
