Confessional Tuesday on Wednesday

Can I get financing for these?

Today's confession may not be a shocker because I know everyone does it, but I'm confessing anyway and you should too because it's wrong.

I take my own food into the movie theater.

Specifically, I take movie box candy into the movie theater.  I can't help it.  I know it's wrong, and I feel guilty about it every time. 

Maybe not as guilty as I feel after consuming said box of movie box candy before the previews are even over, but guilty just the same.

I just can't bring myself to pay more than a buck or so for a box of candy, so I sneak it in to avoid paying over four dollars for something that will make me feel sick and gross.  My kids are appalled at my deceitfulness when I stuff the boxes into the bottom of my purse.  I hate myself for modeling this criminal behavior.

I tell myself that it's not nearly as bad as people who bring their Size Large Big Mac Value Meals inside their coat pockets and stink up the whole theater, but bringing your own food into the theater is clearly not allowed and truthfully I'm just as bad as the rest.

I carefully only take in the candy that the theater doesn't provide, so if I am searched, I have a good alibi.  How can anyone enjoy a movie without Good n Plenty's?

Seriously.  Who decided that Good n Plenty's were out?  Shame on you, movie theater owners.  Shame on you with your outrageous candy prices, and for not even carrying the good kind anyway.

And shame on me for eating every last one after the lights go out.
