When I was a kid I used to love to go to the drive in movie theater. I saw the first Star Wars at a drive in, and ever since then I’ve loved those places. Of course, drive ins went the way of the dodo bird by the time I was a teenager. Right in the prime of my dating years! I never knew how I missed those theaters until last year one opened up right here in town. Now that I have kids of my own, I was excited to share the experience with them. Our first trip was a disaster, though, because it was hot and humid and the A/C in my car died. Sitting in a car with three kids, rolled up windows, and no air conditioning is pretty much a nightmare scenario. And we couldn’t roll the windows down, because the mosquitos were so bad out and getting bit up is worse than poor indoor air quality. I walked over to the concession stand, which was a small building near the back, and was delighted to find the inside of it nicely cooled with AC. I stayed there for a few minutes, soaking up the central cooling and the smell of deep fried corn dogs, before returning to my kids. They were ready to go home, and asked if we could come back and finish the movie another night when it didn’t feel like the heater was running. The next week I got the AC in the car tuned up, and we went back to finally have the great family night we wanted.
