With all the chaos in the world and the social distancing happening, my fiance and I have been itching to get outside the house.
We’ve been quarantining inside for several weeks, so the people I was with and I were desperate for socialization… Thankfully, our neighborhood decided to host a community drive in the theater on a Tuesday night, which the people I was with and I were blissful about. The makeshift theater was only a 10 minute drive from our house, but the people I was with and I were looking forward to it all week. My fiance and I got all dressed up and packed the vehicle with plenty of wine and snacks! However, in all the excitement, neither of us considered what it would undoubtedly be like, resting in a vehicle with no A/C running in the middle of June; as soon as the people I was with and I shut the vehicle off and rolled down the windows, the people I was with and I were hit with thick humidity and sweat. Only 30 minutes or so into the film, and the people I was with and I were completely out of water and the people I was with and I were fanning ourselves with takeout menus. Out of respect, the people I was with and I couldn’t turn our vehicle on to run the A/C because it would make too much noise. The people I was with and I also couldn’t leave, because the people I was with and I were parked in. The people I was with and I were forced to rest in the heat. That was the longest film of our lives for sure. The exact moment the credits started rolling, my fiance started the vehicle and cranked down the AC. Our neighborhood said the drive in theater was so much of a success, that they’re planning on showing a film every Tuesday night for the rest of the summer. The people I was with and I won’t be going anymore until the weather gets noticeably cooler.
