The Movie


"Mom, I need to go to the bathroom," whispered six-year-old Nate into his Mom's ears with a sense of urgency.

"Shhh!" she said with twisted brows as she continued to glare at the screen with an intense look while shoving popcorn in her mouth and chewing nervously.

"Mom!" he said again, and this time in a loud decibel. 

The folks sitting around also Shhhhed him 

"This is a very intense scene. Control your pee! I'll take you when there is an intermission," 

Poor Nate sat there with crossed legs and hands-on his crotch while the Mom enjoyed the movie.

Oh, poor Nate! I hope he holds his interlude! Mom is absorbed in the moment. Your flash reminds me of the time I went with my friend to a waterpark with her daughter, SIL and their four children. We all had fun, but when we left, her daughter grumbled that all she got to do was visit all the bathrooms in the park.
