    First-Framed Your Argument

    | San Jose, CA, USA | Children, Parents & Guardians

    (I’ve dragged my boyfriend to the movies to see the latest Disney movie. We chose an evening show to try and avoid hordes of children, but there are a few in the theater. As the credits end and the very first frame of the movie appears, a little voice from the row behind us pipes up.)

    Kid: “This is my favorite movie!”

    Kid’s Dad: “You’ve never seen this movie. Shut up.”

    They’re At That Orphan-Age

    | Fort Collins, CO, USA | Parents & Guardians

    (Mom and I are seeing Frozen. We are just watching the scene where they are having the funeral for Elsa and Anna’s parents.)

    Mom: “Oooooh…”

    Me: “I wouldn’t be Disney without dead parents.”

    (Mom had to try very hard not to laugh.)

    Playing The Mothering (Eye) Roll

    | Lexington, KY, USA | Parents & Guardians

    Me: *on the phone* “Hello, Mom? Listen, I’m just calling to let you know that I’m going to be out late. They’re having a special screening over at [Local Theater].”

    Mom: “Oh, really? What’s the name of the movie?”

    Me:It Came From Outer Space in 3D.”

    Mom: “…”

    Me: “I can actually hear you rolling your eyes over the phone right now.”

    One Fine Day With A Woof And A Purr…

    | Edwardsville, IL, USA | Siblings

    (My younger brother is just learning how to read. We are all at a movie when the credits begin to roll and the word ‘cast’ comes up first.)

    Brother: “Mommy! If you take the S out of that word, I know what it spells!”

    Mom: “Oh yeah? What’s that?”

    Brother: “C-A-T. Dog!”

    Under Mother’s Spell

    | Chennai, TN, India | Parents & Guardians, Siblings

    (My sister and I have dragged our parents to all the Harry Potter movies. Our first language is not English, but the two of us can manage without subtitles. Not so our parents, and my mother is very creative at story-telling. At the screening of ‘The Goblet of Fire,’ when Moody gives a hint to Harry as to the path to the center of the maze…)

    Sister & I: *excited running commentary, exulting*

    Dad: “What’s that maze? What did that one-eyed man mean by nodding to Harry Potter? This is all very difficult.” *to Mom* “Did you understand?”

    Mom: “See, there’s Dumbledore near Harry. So the one-eyed chap is asking Harry to get Dumbledore’s blessings by falling at his feet.”

    Sister & I: *wide eyed shock at her explanation*

    Dad: “Oh. Good.”

    (Dad believed it. COMPLETELY.)

    Bass-ed On The Comic Book

    | Maple Grove, MN, USA | Parents & Guardians

    (We’ve just gotten out of seeing the ‘300’ sequel in IMAX. After I come out of the bathroom I walk over to my dad as he looks at the cardboard cutout in front of the theater doors.)

    Dad: “Yeah, I’d see it again.”

    Me: “Eh, I’d wait for DVD.”

    Dad: “Didn’t like it?”

    Me: “It was okay, but it was so loud I was in the middle of sensory overload half the time.”

    Dad: “Yeah, well…”

    Me: “Dad. If I can feel the bass in my ribs, it’s too loud.”
