My attention span has always been a problem for me. I'm either too focused on what I'm doing, half-listening, or completely zoned out, then throw in the fact that I watch too many cartoons. Makes for an interesting combination right?
Last night I went to see Robin Hood (I'll refrain from commenting on the movie, other than to state that Alan Doyle did a great job for someone with no acting experience)and the theatre was packed because it was cheap night.
Husband was sitting on my left and an older gentleman wearing too much cologne was sitting on my right, that's fine. Husband had popcorn and I had maltesers. See where this is going yet?
About half way through the show, I reached my hand into the popcorn and pulled out a giant handful. Then, I realized, I reached to the right. Yep, I reached into cologne man's popcorn! He was giving me a look like I had 15 heads, so I offered him some of my maltesers.
Talk about awkward. I'm such a geek, I really should pay more attention to my surroundings.
AND yes, I know that I should not have had the maltesers in the first place, but I DID factor them into my calories for the day, and I drank 2 bottles of water to help balance them out.
