Continuing my Carly Simon homage: I haven’t got time for the pain

Standard

First there was my “Anticipation” as the local theatre was “making me wait, keeping me wa-a-waiting . . .”

Waiting, of course, to find out if and when “Into the Storm” would be gracing the screens of the nearest multiplex.

Because assuming it would, would make an “ass” out of me, right?  Never assume anything.

Well, after being more or less bedridden for close to 24 hours (chalk it up to FMS, sciatica, severe muscle spasms in my back and ulnar nerve pain in the wrist), I picked up my almost-dead cordless phone noon-ish today and once again punched in the numbers for the theater’s hotline.  And what do you know . . . the first thing announced by the recorded voice THIS time was “For Into the Storm, press 1 . . .” I gave an inner *squee* and hastily hit that button. I heard the show times just before the phone gave up the ghost and insisted it be charged for seven hours.

So, you see, I haven’t got time for the pain–not since RA arrived in town in the guise of Gary Morris. Oh, I still hurt, but I’m definitely better than early this morning, and even more so, now that I know I have this guy to look forward to seeing tomorrow:

“Haven’t got time for the pain, haven’t got room for the pain, haven’t the need for the pain, not since I met you . . .” Sing it, Carly!

  1. I am so glad! Those of us who live in cities take these things for granted, and tend to forget it can be challenging to get to movies outside of them.

    • Thanks. I know it’s hard for people who live in more urban areas to relate—I truly *do* live in the middle of nowhere, although I actually do know people who live in even more remote areas than I do. I do count us truly fortunate to have The Edge here in what I consider my hometown of Greenville, which is 12 miles from where we live. There was a long stretch of years during which we had to go to another county to see a film in a theatre once the Ritz shut down in the 70s. Today, we have the only movie theatre in a tri-county area. And it has roomy, comfortable seats with great sightlines from every seat for all eight screens, great sound . . . believe it or not, a retired newspaper writer who lives in Montgomery, where there are plenty of theatres, comes down to Greenville with his wife to The Edge because he likes the movie experience so much better down here.
