The Things You Do For Your Kids - 10-year-old edition
So, my big kids both had places to go tonight (one barbecue, one party in the park) and it was just Zara (10-year-old of the subject line) and me for the evening. We decided to see Batman Begins. As it was getting to be time to leave for the movie, she said "I think we should dress up."

Me: Why?

Z: I don't know. We almost never get dressed up and it's Saturday night and we're going out.

Me: I'm wearing a dress already.

Z: It's a sundress. That's not dressed up.

Me: True.

So we got back about a half hour ago from seeing Batman Begins. In formal wear.


P.S. It's a really good movie.

P.P.S. Everyone else in the theatre (and on the bus getting there and back) was underdressed :-).

Current Mood: amusedamused
Current Music: Abbey Road

Dressing up nice to go see a normal movie Batman your kid asked you too? Wow. I'm very tempted to make some bad jokes now.

So happy you didn't run into Joe Chill though

Hmmm. I can't imagine what they'd be. Do I want to know? I'm not sure...

Bruce Wayne's parents were killed by Joe Chill in a muging gone wrong, but in the comics they went out to see the new Zorro movie and Bruce made his Mom dress up (Pearls and all) cause he wanted it to be a special occasion. Comic-verse Joe Chill wanted her Pearls and one thing led to another and... Yeah.

Wow. It's thing's like that make me realize what a gigantic geek I really am.

Oh! Well, thanks for clearing that up. I was wearing my pearls, too. Little did I know I was courting disaster...

On the plus side aparently TPTB don't want your kid to grow up to be a PsychoBat.
