I snuck out of the movie theater to refill the popcorn.

The concession stand was in the lobby, past the ticket-taker.  When I returned, she didn’t recognize me, and since I didn’t have my ticket stub, she didn’t wanna let me back in.

“What were you watching?” she quizzed me.

It’s a Wonderful Life,” I boasted.

She stared at me blankly.

“You guys are screening it today…?” I prompted.

She stared at me blankly.

“When I left, World War II had just broken out. George stayed home because of his deaf ear, Mr. Potter became head of the draft board, and Bert, the cop, was wounded in North Africa and got the Silver Star,” I gossiped.

She stared at me blankly.

“Buffalo gals, won’tcha come out tonight aaaaaand…dance by the light of the moon…?” I sang.

She stared at me blankly.

“It’s in Theater Number Nine,” I sighed.

“Oh, okay, go right in!”

God damn it.
