Cinema at the farm


Edna: Margie, put down the special tea and go get the bug spray, we're going to a movie tonight!

Margie: Why on Earth do we need bug spray? I'm not going to a theater that has bugs in it.

Edna: Obviously you weren't paying attention earlier when the postman was here. I swan, you ignore anyone who's not falling all over you. If you'd been listening, you would have heard him say that the Richmonds have started an outdoor movie series at their farm and the first movie is tonight! It's free for the community, and they're going to show "Rear Window" on the side of their barn as soon as it gets dark. Lands, this sounds like a wonderful idea, doesn't it?

Margie: What a lovely idea! I can't wait. I can just see myself pretending to be looking for the restroom when I fall into some hunk's lap.

Let's load up on popcorn, candy bars, and special tea for me.

Edna: You'd best watch the special tea, I'm not sure Stanley Richmond will be letting you inside his farmhouse to use the facilities if you overindulge. Besides, I won't have you embarrassing me in public again, you're a sloppy drunk.

I do like the idea of doing something in the out-of-doors that's easy on the budget yet fun for the community. Plus, how often do you get to say you watched a movie in a barnyard?

Margie: You just hold on there. Barnyard? Like with horse droppings and cow patties? I'm not exactly the outdoorsy type, sister.

Edna, I don't feel so good. I best stay home because I wouldn't want anybody else to catch this bug I've got.

Edna: Whoo-eee, that's the best news I've gotten all day! See you later, sister, I'm off to the movies. Er, and feel better soon, I guess.
