Theater or Living Room?

Soooo . . . the boys and I went to see Avatar 3D . . . again. I liked the movie the first time I saw it in Imax 3D, but do you realize it's almost 3 hours long? We went expecting the theater to be mostly empty since we were there in the early afternoon, but who knew . . . it was sold out and the last two seats available were right next to me. The elderly couple looked nice enough and since it was dark and the previews had started, I hollered to the end of the row that we had 2 seats open. Sometimes elderly people can be deceiving.

If you've seen Avatar you know there are some scenes that are action-packed and some are emotional. From the first scene where we see the main character in his wheel chair the "movie etiquette handicapped" lady started off with an "Oh no!" and an "Oh my gosh;" not in whispered tones, but in a "I'm sitting in my living room so I can say whatever I want" voice. After the 3rd or 4th "Oh no!" I happened to see Josh holding his hand over his mouth snickering, which set me laughing. I seriously wanted to ask her how long it had been since she'd been out of the house. And did I mention the movie is almost 3 hours long??

After all her vocalizations, when the movie ended her final comment was, "Hmmm. That was . . . interesting." Wow. Oh no! Oh, my gosh! Interesting???
