John has been looking forward to seeing Batman Begins for a very long time, and planning on seeing it for his 17th birthday, which is today.
Doug and I first scared John into thinking he was in some serious trouble by calling him upstairs just before 11:00 p.m. last night. He was standing in front of Doug and I was off to the side. We made it seem that he’d done something wrong (but only for a minute, if it was that long).
What John did not know was that Doug had purchased the tickets for the midnight showing online and had the printout behind his back.
John looked very concerned, and after some dialog between us, Doug pulled the tickets out and John couldn’t believe that we were kidding.
Batman Begins was awesome! John and I went to see it together and I will have to say that it outdid the first two Batman movies. I can’t wait to go and see it again. I was planning on staying home with our kids so Doug could take a group of John’s friends to see it on Friday. Well, now I’m hoping to be there to see it with them. It’s too cool to pass up.
Ah, Batman Begins … another opening night showing. I can’t wait to see it again.
