...after having parked in a land far far away.
Apparently, I was not the only person with this brilliant idea on a humid Wisconsin day :)]
Young Male Stranger to Me: Are you planning to see How to Train Your Dragon?
Me (surprised): Yes.
Stranger: The 7 o'clock showing?
Me (a bit worried): Yes.
Stranger: General Admission?
Me (a little freaked out): Um, yes. (Is there any other choice? Oh yeah. The crazy expensive bistro tickets. Yeah I never do that.) Yes. General admission.
Stranger: I have extra tickets that I'm not going to use. [shows them to me]
Me (unsure about him, but with the number of people swarming the theater, increasingly concerned that the movie would be sold out before I got mine): Ok. Let me pay you.
Stranger (surprised): Oh no. Here. You can have them. They were just going to go to waste.
Me (elated): Are you SURE? Oh my goodness. Thank you!!
Despite what you may think...
to a perfect stranger...
Oh, and I *did* look around for the government bureaucrat who made this possible, but I didn't see him anywhere. I hope Obama doesn't think I'm ungrateful.
