My husband and I love movies. We don’t watch too much television, but ask us about movies and we can engage you in delightful conversation.
One of my dear friends, and her husband, also share our love for movies, and the four of us watch most movies together.
We eagerly await the release of some movies and plan ahead, then again, there are those impromptu plans when we are at a loose end.
We truly enjoy our time together driving to the cinema complex, talking about all kinds of things from world politics to music to movies to each others’ lives and of course our children!
We buy tubs of popcorn, coffee, iced lemon tea and watch the movie – laughing sometimes, crying sometimes and sometimes sighing with boredom.

On our drive back we dissect the movie, a pleasurable task, and relive all the wonderful parts in the movie.
The associated memories are also fun – like the time we went for a late night show and I fell down at the entrance and had to be carried to the car, the time when we waited with a lot of anticipation for a movie’s release and only got tickets to the 11.50 p.m. show and then slept through the movie because it was so boring, like the time we all went down a slide in the cinema complex that had been put up to promote another film……so many great memories.
The camaraderie we share is priceless. We have been going to the movies together for over 8 years now and the kind of bonding we have is so special.
Truly there are different flavours to friendship and this one is truly special – it is Popcorn flavoured. My favourite!
