This is a hard one for me because I'm
one of those really annoying people who say
"oh but the book was way better!"
in a very snotty, sanctimonious voice.
The movies I liked most was whatever I went
with my kids to see.
Going to the movies when you live in a country town
is a huge adventure.
We would talk about it for a few days before.
We would get up nice and early to prepare.
We would then begin the hour drive to the closest theatre.
If we were early enough there was time
to just sit in the foyer and people watch.
Yes we are creepy people watchers.
My kids would then wait for their brown paper bags.
Brown paper bags?
Whenever we went on a long car trip I would make up
brown paper bags with some lollies and pencils and paper
and sometimes a little toy like a kaleidoscope or a small puzzle.
I would do a little drawing and put their names on the bag
just like my mum did on our school lunch bags.
Anyway I did the same for our yearly movie trip
but it would just be a few lollies and juice
as we all loved to have the movie popcorn.
So while this post really has nothing to do with
my favourite movie it has something to do
with my favourite people , my kids.
