"Unplugging" by seeing a movie

Tonight my daughter and I went to see the movie "Runner Runner" starring Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck.  I won the tickets to the movie through a contest on a local radio station.  The movie was pretty good, and I probably wouldn't have bothered to go if it hadn't been free.  Ben Affleck looked stunning in the movie and it was a good story.  I won't spoil the ending for you, but if you're looking for something to see this weekend, I recommend it.

Anyway, after we got back home, I realized how nice it was to take a break from the world by going to the movies.  I hadn't really thought of it that way  before, but it really is.  You get to sit in a dark theater and you are not allowed to use your phone (!).  It's too dark for me to crochet or anything like that while I watch, so there is absolutely no multi-tasking going on.  I think because you can't talk during the movie and it's dark, you have two choices:  watch the movie or sleep.  Before I know it, I'm engrossed in the movie and not thinking about anything else, really.  The the movie's over, the lights come on, and  I'm back in "reality".

It really is a nice way to create some "space" in our day to day thoughts once in a while.  The cost of movie tickets is kind of high, but if you can resist the over priced concessions, it's not a bad way to pamper yourself a little.
