Humor - just to lighten things up

Recommended Posts

I nearly fell out of my chair when I read this on my class reuinion web site. I didn't write it but I wish I had...my first time was almost identical but at a different drive-in. I edited it a little to remove some personal stuff that didn't add to the story.

Anyway, thought I'd share it and see if anyone had anything to add.

 

 

 

My first time was at the South 29 Drive-In........

 

Does anybody ever remember what movie was playing?

I didn't think so. Something in the back of my mind

wants to say Peyton Place.

 

I do remember we were both sixteen and it was

a cold winter night during the Christmas holidays.

It was a long walk to the concession stand for the

popcorn and cokes.

 

To say I was nervous was an understatement. West

side guys learn or try to learn from the older guys,

sometimes just listening and never asking any questions. Not cool to ask questions.

 

Well, everything was going as planned. I was

warned about how totally embarrassing it could be

and even humiliating to her. I kept reminding myself

of that.

 

The windows on all the cars around us were fogged

up just like ours which made us feel better.

 

I don't know if it was all the apprehension or

the excitement that took my mind somewhere else.

I do know that my surging hormones were exceeded

only by a sudden movement and yes, I had driven

off with the speaker still attached to the car,

for my first time.

 

The second time was at the Queen Drive-In.

Sadly, teens today don't get a chance to experience drive in theatres. I actually saw Star Wars at the drive in. In a surreal moment, I saw M*A*S*H at the drive-in and when they do the speaker announcements over at the camp I at first thought is was an announcement from the theatre!

I didn't get to experience a drive-in until I was married with child.

 

Happy to say we have a great drive-in here in SW MO

Of course you listen on your car radio now instead of speaker!

I haven't seen a working drive-in in years - I'm glad there are some left. Most have disappeared. The topo map of my home shows a drive in about 1/2 mile away, but it's long gone. I'll bet that some of those remaining drive-ins might be eligible for the National Register of Historic Places!

I finally got to see Bonnie and Clyde on TV after going to see it at the Drive-in three times. It was really violent!

All the drive-ins in my area are gone! They were a great place to watch a movie on a warm summer night! It's sad.
