I have a confession to make. Whenever I go to the movie theater, I always smuggle in my own snacks. Typically a box of milk duds, a bag of popcorn and a can of diet coke. I have a really great purse that holds more than it looks like it is capable of, so I have never been caught.
Yesterday, I went to see a movie, but didn’t have the magic purse with me. I bought large bag of popcorn from the drugstore (frugalsense beat out commonsense – the bigger bag was a better price) and I decided to hide it in my jacket. To make it less obvious, I opened the bag and let the air out. Those of you who are familiar with my luck can probably see where this story is heading.
I folded the bag of popcorn over, wrapped it up in my jacket and started walking toward the theater. About 10 feet from the entrance, I noticed something was falling all around my feet. Like Gretel, I had left a popcorn trail that began right outside my car! Luckily, it was a matinee at the cheap theater and there weren’t many people around. I ducked around a corner, adjusted my contraband and was able to get in undetected. I kept laughing though, thinking it could have been worse. The spillage could have started when I was INSIDE the theater!
