Let's All Go to the Lobby
Mr. T&C and I had our first real date in November 1993, when we saw Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas. After Mr. T&C made sure that we had great seats, he politely excused himself, and returned in a few minutes with a tub of popcorn and soft drinks. He then pulled a packet of peanut M&Ms out of his shirt pocket and poured them into the popcorn. I had been brought up under the instruction that going to the movies was treat enough; refreshments were overpriced distractions. As you might imagine, a spontaneous offering of popcorn sprinkled with candy was--well, let's just say, things looked promising.
