Confessions of a Chocoholic-at the Movies

2

 

Chocoholics have every day struggles. Believe it or not, even a simple trip to the movie theater can have its challenges.




 

 

You spend your paycheck at concession counter.

 

You find a comfortable seat, but need to get your snacks organized.

During the previews, you politely nibble on your popcorn, and wait patiently to dig into your candy stash.

 

Once the lights go out, you go for it. Only you can’t get the package open.

image

 

And every little sound of the wrapper echoes through the theater.

image

 

You get the dreaded shush.

image

 

Is he talking to me?

image

 

You finally settle in and start enjoying yourself.

image

 

And your favorite part comes on.

image

 

And then the unthinkable happens. What you think is a Goober, turns out to be a Raisinet.

image

 

You need to wash it down. Quick.

Only now you have to go. Bad.

You take a detour by the concession stand and return to your seat, with a new box of chocolate, and enjoy..until the movies over…and the lights come on. And you’re busted.
