slipped into

There was no one at the ticket counter...I didn't even hesitate. I opened the door and walked straight ahead, trying to look like I belonged. Inside I spotted the drinking fountain, Perfect I thought, A purpose! I totally need to get a drink of water. I saw the Men's Bathroom, but where is the Woman's Bathroom? I now knew that I had picked the wrong side. No bathroom to take cover and no theater that I sought insight. I saw the woman with the lavender shirt go to the ticket booth now. "Seventeen fifty, first theater on your right." My stride was smooth, well as smooth as I could make it with my mind racing with the thought of being asked, "Can I see your ticket please?". I entered the bathroom and looked in the mirror. What am I doing? I still hadn't found the theater with the movie I came to see. Now I started to really panic and considered aborting the mission. Instead I peaked around the corner and saw March Of The Penguins only thirty feet ahead of me. I walked straight for it and slipped into the darkness.

For the first fifteen minutes I thought for sure the police were going to come in and take me away.

I thought the movie was great! Beautifully done and incredibily interesting.

Christa---I don't think it would hold his attention...? It might be a better "renter" for him in the future.

That's great!! I haven't snuck into a movie since I was in middle school. I've secretly always wanted to sneak in after seeing one to do a double feature.

I want to see March of Penguins too. Although I think it'll make me want to own a penguin cuz they are so cute!

I need to start sneaking into movies. That way I won't feel bad when I leave halfway through movie when it sucks.
