The Joys of Womanhood -- I have to laugh at myself today at doing something really silly. Yesterday I got together with my two writer friends and we had a nice lunch and afterwards we planned on going to see a true chick flick movie of the Traveling Pants variety. (For research, mind you for those of us who might want to write a YA one day.) It was something we'd planned and replanned to adjust to everyone's schedule. All of us checked the times of the movie previously, so after lunch we bought our tickets and entered the theatre, chatting the entire time. When we finally found the right auditorium, we thought it strange that the movie had already started. And luckily, one of my friends had read the book. She said that this movie is more than mid-way through the story. Okay, we thought we sat in the wrong theatre, but no. Lo and behold, the times we'd checked last had been changed. They always change on Wednesday, but not one of us chatting females bothered to look up at the marquee and even the girl selling us the tickets didn't happen to mention that the movie was ALMOST over! We got our money back and chuckled at the silliness of it all. Just goes to show what happens when three women with lots of news to share, aren't really paying attention to anything, but each other! We sat at Starbucks in the Barnes and Noble and continued our chat -- completely unphased and enjoyed ourselves all the more!
