Charlie is supposed to go on a field trip today, for the very educational purpose of seeing the Smurfs movie at an actual movie theater. Since he's only been to a movie theater once in his life, he's very excited.
There might be a small problem, however, in that the movie theater is 40 miles away from the school, and it's supposed to dump snow and sleet most of the day.
Sucks being a country mouse in the North Country sometimes.
So we'll see if they actually get to go. If they do go, though, I feel like I should buy the teachers a drink at the end of the day. I mean, can you imagine sitting on a bus with 35 three- and four-year-olds for a total of almost two hours, and then sitting in a movie theater with them for another hour and a half? If anything deserves a bottle of alcohol, that would be it.
I don't know how much a preschool teacher makes, but it probably isn't nearly enough to compensate for that.
