End of an Era

I had two things happen to me within a week of each other. First I turned 30 years old. Second I went to see Cars 3 by myself. Those two things may seem unrelated, but I realized something that everyone has to come to terms with at some point in their lives…I’m too old to see an animated film by myself in the theater.

I love the animated genre and I have no problem with seeing films by yourself in a theater (that’s a post for a later date). However, the optics of a grown man sitting by himself in a crowded theater filled with little children is now too awkward for me to bear.

I understand that I shouldn’t care about what other people think. I know that I’m just there to enjoy the film, but when I can hear a mother discussing me like I’m not sitting right there is just too much.

So here’s what happened…my local theater just upgraded to better recliners and the ability to purchase your exact seat beforehand. On this night I had bought seat G9, but when I arrived there were several small children sitting in G10-whatever. That prompted me to go rogue and sit in G8 instead of sitting right next to a little kid. I just prayed that nobody purchased G8. Thankfully the rest of the row was empty. At about 6:58 (the film started at 7), I thought I had lucked out. However, just after I had that thought a group of kids and their mother came into the theater and where do you think they sat? You guessed it, in the G row. The kids were a bit awkward picking their seats so I assumed one of them was supposed to sit next to me, but none of them did. A minute later their grandmother (I’m assuming of course…I didn’t ask 🙂) came in to sit down. The mother said to her, “can you sit over there (pointing towards me), nobody wants to sit next to THAT guy?” She gave exactly zero fucks that I could easily hear her.

I know it wasn’t a HUGE deal, but it just pissed me off that she made such a big deal out of it. It just made me feel even more awkward than I already felt. I do know that my wife is mos def coming with me next week to see Despicable Me 3!
