Drive-by geeklet story:
When your youngest is still just an 11yr old boy and your oldest are teenage girls sometimes sacrifices have to be made for going to a “family” movie. This weekend we went to see Captain Underpants. Bad choice. It’s getting surprisingly good results, but I think that even at 11 my son’s a bit old for the level of maturity required. The audience laughed at every “Uranus” joke, but if I had to guess I’d say the average age was more like 8.
Coming out of the theatre my older geeklet announced, “I could have seen Macbeth! Instead I went to see Captain Underpants. I think I lost brain cells.”
The local high school is performing Macbeth this weekend. I knew that, but I’ve learned from experience that going to see a high school production of Shakespeare when you have no vested interest in it is a painful experience. What I didn’t realize is that her friends invited her to go see their friends that are actually in it.
What I should have said was, “True, but which one do you think has more jokes involving bodily functions?”
