Dear Mr. Dad

Dear Mr. Dad Who Came in Late,
I know you probably had good intentions when you were taking your small brood to see Monsters vs. Aliens in 3D last Saturday. And your kids looked really cute when they had their over-sized 3D glasses on as they came into the movie theatre. But with a little more planning, you would have realized that this movie just came out, and everyone else and their brood wanted to see it, too (including 2 twenty-somethings, one of whom is writing this blog). So, it was not cool when you shuffled in 2 seconds before the show began and couldn't find 5 seats together. But it was even less cool when you told your children that they wouldn't be seeing it today, as the lights dimmed and previews were playing in the background. Children under the age of 7 don't understand the concept of your error. It was heartbreaking to see the children being pulled down the the stairs and out the door, just as the screen prompted everyone to "please put on your 3D glasses." I'm just wondering how you made it up to them. There better have been a trip to get ice cream or something. I'm telling you... it was heartbreaking.
