hose among leaves

hose in leaves

I went to see a movie yesterday afternoon and loved it. (Michael Clayton) Fred is out of town, so I went on a lark, tired of being cooped up at home with the kids and their friends. I think it's been over a decade since I've gone to the movies alone. I couldn't finish my small popcorn, but I'd do it all over again.

I'm now remembering a movie Fred and I went to see together. Five minutes into it, I knew I couldn't stay. It was satanic-scary, or had some animal death scene or something I just couldn't watch. So I told Fred I would be next door at the megaplex, and popped out before he could say a word. I found some mindless comedy, which ended near the same time, and enjoyed it. He still won't let me forget the day I abandoned him at the movies! I didn't know that about him until then-- it's less the movie than the company.

Loved the picture. Maybe it's not a hose -- maybe it's an undiscovered, undescribed species of snake!
