At The Movies With Lotta

I went to the movie theater today with my kids. (Yes, the theater) About halfway into the movie son asked for a popcorn refill. I thought to myself, "Heeeey. We're sitting in the very back row of this theater. Our seats are in the middle. I surely don't want to trouble the folks to the left or right of me by walking past them and stumbling onto their laps. So I'll just hop right on over the back of this here seat".

So I did a semi-crouch while standing on the seat then swung one leg over the top of the chair. Immediately unbalancing the theater seat and causing my other leg to sink into the hole between the back and tush cushion. So were you to turn away from the movie screen you would see a woman straddling the top of her theater seat.

I didn't want to look like some odd chair humper so I sort of threw myself over and hoped to God I landed alright. Well thanks to small mercies my ankle didn't get stuck. I just fell with a wallop to the floor. Then started loudly cracking up at my idiocy. Realized how loud I was and popped the top of my head up over the edge of the seat to see if anyone noticed.

Imagine this wild hump, fall, laugh, peep all happened within the span of a minute. Nice.

I was laughing so hard I nearly choked on a Jelly Belly. Coincidentally, it was buttered popcorn flavored.

I never see anything that funny when I go to the theater. If I had been there, I would have given you a standing ovation!
