When I suggested a cool movie on a hot day, he said, “Ah Honey, I gotta get that boat in shape for the fishing tournament. But you go ahead.”
He thought I wouldn’t go alone. He thought I would stick around fanning myself in a lawn chair, waiting to go for a part or fetch a beer. But I fooled him, grabbed my purse, and left. I cranked the air to frigid, shoved in Pavarotti, and raced to the show.
I settled into the comfortable movie theater seat with awkward 3D glasses perched on my nose, a small tub of popcorn on my lap, and a bottle of water lodged into the seat holder while escaping with my imaginary lover on the screen—who knew nothing about bass and crappie.
