Went to watch ‘Ghost Stories’ at the cinema on Saturday after my swimming lessons. A beautiful early summer’s eve. Everyone out in the beer gardens getting tanked up in the sun.
There’s a bar now at the local Odeon, so I treated myself to half a Peroni while I waited for my pal. I took a seat and watched the local constabulary putting some restorative practice into play with the local Asian teens, who appeared to have had some kind of foyer-based rumble among the popcorn stands.
What a dive!
I enjoyed the film. A few decent jumpscare moments. One of which sent my mate’s popcorn flying to the floor and another sent my empty pop bottle bouncing noisily down the aisle. My pal whispered at one point, “As if you’d go wandering about alone in an abandoned place like that in the dark” Then laughed as we both then said, “What? like we do all the bloody time?”
You would think a couple of time-served investigators like ourselves wouldn’t bat an eyelid at a mere film, but there were a fair few “OH!” moments and clutching of one another’s arms in the dark, then sniggering like Mutley.
If you like a good old fashioned tense ghost story then this is for you.
As I’ve said before. The dead don’t alarm me. It’s some of the living who are the ones to fear.
Anyway, it’s back to the routine of work now for the next half term. It’s Day 1 and I’m still smiling. I have put in a written request to go part-time from September. So watch this space for any update on that!
