|I had put this in my Delighted thread on CMT. I don't really feel like changing it around at this point in time, but I may edit it a little better in the future.

I got lost in the movie theater once.
This was when I was young and good looking. In my late twenties, I think.
My friend Becky and I went to see the first episode of Star Wars together.
She had brown, curly hair and was wearing a polka dot shirt.
I got a coke and popcorn on the way in, and of course had to run to the Ladies Room about an hour into the movie.
When I got up, I noticed that my car keys dropped out of my short shorts pocket.
I didn't worry about it then because I wanted to go pee and get back to see the movie real fast.
When I came back to my seat, I kept searching down each side of my seat, looking for those keys.
I had thought I had dropped them down the left side of my seat, but when I didn't find them there, I started reaching down around the right side of my seat.
I asked Becky what had happened onscreen while I was gone, and she told me in a few short words.
I kept talking (a little) and looking for my keys.
I thought Becky was acting kind of funny.
I didn't think that she was the kind of person who thought that you should absolutely never talk in a movie.
When the movie was over, I got up and turned around to look down in the seat to find my still lost keys.
Becky was leaving and I looked up to tell her, "Wait a minute, I can't find my keys and you know I'm driving."
Some brown curly haired guy in a polka dotted shirt was making tracks out of that movie theater row as fast as he could go!
Becky was 5 rows up.
When I laughed and told her what I had done, she said, "Well, I wondered where you went!"
