So …. Lee and I thought it would be a good idea to ditch work, trek 90 minutes to Winter Park, and try to get tickets for a special, sneak-peek screening of Divergent (opens nationwide on March 21). The E-mail we received from the PR company said, “No guarantee of tickets, but please try to make it.”
So off we went.
We arrived and there were only 25 other people in line. We figured we’d have a good shot for tickets to the 6:30 screening.
At about 5:30, we were told we were going to get in. At 6:30, we were told the talent – Divergent author Veronica Roth and actor Ansel Elgort – were still 30 minutes out. At 7:00 PM, we’re still waiting.
There’s something about being surrounded by a gaggle of pre-teen fan girls that can make even the most patient man want to snap. I think even Gandhi would be like, “Enough already!”
I am sure I will look back on this night as another great adventure shared with my wife. Us attempting to live life to the fullest. Right now, however, all I can think about is where can I get a beer.
