I up and bought a ticket for a movie at the cinema.

It's a movie I could watch free on TV, but Frances told me to see it on the biggest screen possible.

COVID is still oddly prevalent around here, and it is a tad nerve-wracking, despite my being vaccinated.  Of course I hope it won't prove foolish.  The theater does have social distancing, though, and requires masks be worn, and says it has upgraded its HVAC to circulate air, and all that.

I'd been texting with a coworker about how he was going to the movies last night, and did check what was playing at the comfy-seats theater in Saline, but thought I'd decided not to take the plunge yet.  Then the art cinema's email came right after I found out that my neighbor friend quasi-familial avuncular sibling-like loved one who had a big surgery yesterday is not doing well.  It sounds very dire, from what I can tell from some fractured communication.  He was flat-out scared, going into it, too, and, I dunno, of course he was, yet now that part seems worse.

Anyhow, I think I'm going to the movies cuz of what's going on with him.  Can't really explain the connection, but I can tell there is one.
