Kids Again

Saturday, dh and I went to a birthday party at a downtown club. It was on the 2nd story of this cool old brick building..

When we drove up outside, we noticed these great black and white movies (like Charlie Chaplin movies) playing on the side of the building across from the club -- so the movie was like 2 or 3 stories high. We both thought the movie was awesome.

So, we go to the party, have a drink, we're feeling pretty good, and I decide to check out the projector that's showing these films -- it's in the next room over (both rooms face the street).

I broke it.

I touched something on the machine and the wall of the building across the way went dark. I say "Psst...dh...OH MY GOD, I've broken the movie."

He laughs.

"No, really, damnit! I broke it!"

He laughs more. So, anyway, we start giggling as we take turns trying to fix it, with one of us on the "lookout" for anyone coming our way. Finally, we get the movie going again and run away from the machine like little kids making off from the dime store with stolen candy. For the remainder of the time at the party, we'd look out the window, see the movie playing, and laugh.

Ooh -- I should do a "secret" postcard and send it in! (Though I suppose it's not a secret anymore). LOL.

Do you and your spouse or friends ever act like little kids?

    Too funny Ellen. I probably would've freaked out and ran away without fixing it. You have those special skills. :o)

    You learned that from your mother..One time she hit a car in the church parking lot and didnt tell me. I was reading the local paper and there was a personal in it sayin " will the person who hit my car please contact me again" I was laughing at the statement and your mother started crying and fessed up.. We both kept our mouth shut!!

    L, now this is interesing. I should take a poll to see how many would run away and how many would risk discovery to fix it. LOL.

    Dad, I can totally see Mom both driving away from the parking lot (fear "driving" her) AND breaking the projector too. LOL.

    say...I just updated my word count which shows 32.2% for around 29K words. That math just doesn't calculate, know what I mean? I wonder if it's always off?

    Um, more than I'd lilk to admit. But hey, what's a 30 something to do? Grow up? I think not.

    I agree LF -- growing up is overrated. :)

    LOL, E! That sounds like a great party. :)

    DH and I act like kids all the time. If you don't believe me, ask the kittens. They'll tell you.

    H, I can see your kitties rolling their eyes at you and Mr. H, their little meows telling you to grow UP. LOL.

    I love this image of you. :~) My husband likes to make farting noises in the store and yell JAN!

    LOL, Jan! And just think, he'll be home soon so you can enjoy more moments such as those. :)
