New Thing #244: Public School Movie Night



Tonight was another one of those new “dad” things for me; the whole family hiked over to the school gymnasium and watched Monsters Inc. together.

It might be that I’ve gotten used to never having a moment’s peace, but I had a terrific time watching the movie even amongst a hundred screaming and restless children. But maybe that’s what made it even better, hearing the little screams at the scary parts quickly followed by deep laughter.

When we got there, Audrey immediately ran off to sit with her school friends, and made me realize just how fast she’s growing up. Shauna and I sat down in the universally uncomfortable grey plastic school issued chairs made for people without circulation to their bums. But they gave us popcorn, so that smoothed things out.

And for a while it was almost like we were out to see a movie on a Friday night again. And a damned good one. I forgot just how great a film Monsters Inc is. And apart from a few minutes of a rather frightening chase scene, Audrey had a great time too. 

I’d include a picture of us all together, but Audrey was very restless, hungry and, well, grumpy as all get out before we could snap anything half cute.
