Nadine had been excited for our school-night date for some time, and I have to admit, so had I. We had it all planned out. At 6:30 I headed out, grabbed a couple of delicious New York style subs at our favorite sandwich shop, The Other Coast, picked her up from gymnastics at 6:45, and then we raced to the theater to get there by 7pm to see the movie, The Fault in Our Stars. We made it in time to see half of the trailers, then when the movie started we got to work on our sandwiches. I’d smuggled them in, but we were far from quiet unwrapping them, and then once they were unwrapped wow, we unleashed the delicious sandwich aroma, and everyone in that theater certainly knew what we were up to. But that didn’t stop us. We devoured the sandwiches and then cried through the movie. Well I cried mostly. Non-stop. Nadine kept looking over at me to see if I was crying and then kind of laughed. But it is such a non-stop tear-jerker movie!
When it was over we walked out holding hands and Nadine told me how much she loved the movie. I loved it too, but I think I love just about any movie I see on the big screen.
When we got home Todd and Miles were enjoying their own special night, eating Subway sandwiches and watching Miles’s favorite shows on TV.
