Hello future readers!
I'm glad to be back home in Springfield. I missed all of my friends. And I was really glad yesterday when my mom told me I could invite one of my friends to go to the Drive-In movie with us! Outta site! So I called up my friend Bridget, and her mom said she could go. So after dinner, my mom and I picked her up and we drove out there. I couldn't wait to see what movie was playing! Bridget was really excited too! She hadn't been to a Drive-In movie in a long time!
We drove past the marquee, and saw that a Tarzan movie was playing. Groovy! I think it was the same Tarzan movie that was at the movie house last year. I wonder if the boys had seen it.
Mom paid the admission and we looked for a good spot. We always like to park in the middle, and not behind any vans or pick-ups, so we can have a real good view. I was glad we got there a little early, so Bridget and I could go to the snack bar. The snack bar shorts were still playing, so we had some time. The dancing hot dogs are so funny!
My mom gave us a dollar each, and we went to the snack bar. There are lots of yummy things to eat there. Since we both just finished dinner, we just got popcorn and soda.
On the way back to the car, we ran into Shante' and Susan, who were headed for the snack bar. Shante's mom had brought them here too!
We all agreed to meet up tomorrow and talk about the movie. Bridget and I went back to the car, and got cozy under a blanket in the back seat. After a bunch of previews (one of them was Dr. E!), the movie started.
It was a pretty good movie. It was all about this photographer and went out on safari. But he got lost in the jungle. Right when he was about to be attacked by a giant snake, Tarzan saved him. Tarzan invited the man to come and stay with him for a while. The man wanted Tarzan to go back to civilization with him, but Tarzan wouldn't go. Here are some scenes from the movie:
Bridget was scared of the gorilla. My mom said it was probably just a man in a costume, but he looked pretty real!
I almost dropped my popcorn when I saw that snake. Man was he ever big!
We started talking about if the snake was going to eat the photographer. My mom told us to pipe down and watch the movie.
We were glad Tarzan saved the man from that horrible snake! It was a really good movie, but a really long one, and I think we both fell asleep right before the end.
Even though we missed the end of the movie, I'm still glad we went. Drive-ins are really far-out, and my mom and I go at least once every summer. Even though you have computers and weird space age stuff in the future, I hope you still have Drive-in movies. It just wouldn't be summer time without them!
Until next time, future readers,
