Inspiring Story of the Week
Welcome to the Theater of the Absurd
by Lois W. Stern
This day began with a bang, literally! My husband had dropped a heavy duty hammer on his big toe and was wailing pitifully. But this was only the beginning to a day we will never forget.
Since our plan to go golfing was now out of the question, we decided instead to take Mom to a movie. Hubby had it all figuted out. He would walk into the theater wearing his moccasins, but change into the sandals he wore for the drive once we got seated in the theater. That way he could keep the pressure off his injured toe.
But once he purchased our tickets at the theater window, a frizzy haired woman seated behind the glass partition eyed the shopping bag holding his sandals and snarled, “You can’t take that in here.”
Their conversation began with hubby offering to change into the sandals right away and leave the bag with her until ready to leave. But the matron had already decided we were not fit to enter her theater. That began with escalating tension, rising voices, clenched fists . . . with tickets flying in the air.
We never did eot to see thst movie, but a kindly policeman saved the day. You’ve just got to read this one to learn of this laugh-out-loud adventure.
