"I brought you flowers," Haskell said, pulling them from behind his back.
"Thanks, but they look kind of dead. Oh, I get it! Like the zombies. That's so… romantic?" When we reached the front of the line, Haskell offered to buy my ticket, so I did the polite thing and let him pay. I am a lady, after all.
"Hey, weren't you like just here?" The box office dude asked me.
"I guess I just have one of those familiar faces," I said cheerily while motioning for him to shut it! We were a little late for Zombie Buffet 3, so we hurried into the theater, and the movie was so awesome that I completely forgot about Aidan!
"Oh, no!" I yelled out loud, causing Haskell to give me a strange look. "Oh, no…I forgot to get popcorn! How am I supposed to watch civilization fall one fleshy bite at a time without popcorn?"
"No worries. I'll go grab some," Haskell offered.
"No! I'm very particular about the salting of my popcorn! You should just sit back and enjoy the chainsaw wielding," I insisted before running back to the other movie where I left Aidan.
"Where have you been? I was getting worried—you were gone for like 30 minutes!" I look at Aidan, feeling kind of guilty. But then the kids on the screen started singing, and all I could think about was how annoying THEY were and how much better the other movie was.
