Subject: Batman review
Saw the movie -- it was amazing, but I have a
different story for you. You'll appreciate this.
So we are out here in Provincetown, Mass, for
a summer holiday.
The Dark Knight is playing in the P-Town movie
house -- which is about the size of
a celebrity's home theater. It has maybe
seventy seats, max.
We go in a group of six, get there early, and
still have to split up because it is such a small space
and that's the way the cookie crumbles.
Just before the show is about to start, this guy comes in
and he's going around inquiring about open seats.
There is nothing left, at this point, but singles.
He is making a big to-do about needing two seats
together for himself and his husband.
Finally, a guy two seats down from us offers to
move, since e is a single. He's a big guy, and,
its a small theater, so practically the whole
front of the theater has to shuffle about to facilitate the move.
I'm thinking, "god, what a prima-donna", couldn't
they just suck it up and sit apart for a couple hours?
In my midwestern-raised mind, that is just the
price you pay for showing up late.
At this point, one of my buddies in front of me
turns back and says,
"Do you know who Andrew Sullivan is"?
Well, I start in to my tirade about what a bitter
old queen / Bush-loving asshole he is
and my buddy gets this horrified look on his
face and mouths, "That's him", pointing
discreetly at the guy who came in late and moved
everyone around -- who is now
sitting two seats in front of me, clearly within
And then the woman sitting next to me leans over
and whispers in my ear,
"I couldn't agree with you more. People
like him should be publicly shamed
for supporting that asshole (Bush), not allowed
out in public with the rest of us."
And then the movie started.
Anyway, though you would get a kick out of that
Have a great week.
