Whatever Nicky tells you today, she’s lying; this prompt was NOT my idea, and you can NOT blame me. Instead, do what I do, blame CheesyMike.
Still, as today’s prompt is “The day I met Abraham Lincoln”, I guess I have to write about the day I met Abe.
It was a dark and stormy night. The kind of dark when even the white of the falling snow seems to absorb every ray of light from the street lamps. Every seat in the theater was occupied and there was a sense of expectation in the air.
It was a night made for tragedy.
The film was really good, though, and the popcorn was awesome.
This post is part of Nicky and Mike’s 30 Minus 2 Days of Writing challenge. Today’s prompt is The day I met Abraham Lincoln. Go check out We Work For Cheese for a list of the other participants. *
And that's it?! I guess this really wasn't your idea after all.ReplyDelete
I did not see the film, but everyone that did really liked it. Many fell in love with Lincoln, got to see another side of him.ReplyDelete
It was a great movie, I liked it a lot. I can definitely recommend you see it .:)ReplyDelete
It was CheesyMike!ReplyDelete
Hey ZIva! Heh! A masterful evasion, milady! I'm still chuckling in a dark, Scandinavian way, Z ;) Indigo xReplyDelete
Evasion? Me? Never!ReplyDelete
Glad you liked it, though. ;)
I met Mary Lincoln. I asked her "Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play?"ReplyDelete
Oh, genius twist!ReplyDelete
Every seat was taken? Oh my. I guess there wasn't anything better to do that night? Hee Hee. Glad you liked the movie.ReplyDelete
I preferred Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.ReplyDelete
I never got around to seeing that one.. Wish I had, it looked pretty awesome. ;)ReplyDelete
It was a big movie night. ;)ReplyDelete
Come here and say that!ReplyDelete
Very clever. I'd love to see the movie sometime.ReplyDelete
It's definitely worth the watch. :)ReplyDelete
That reminds me... I still have to go see this movie. I wonder how soon it will be coming to the discount movie theater? (So I can afford the popcorn.)ReplyDelete
I haven't seen the movie yet, but it is showing at the theatre where you can order drinks and food. May have to go now that you have recommended it.ReplyDelete
Excellent! I haven't seen it yet, but know the area in which it was filmed (my hometown).ReplyDelete
I saw it on the plane back from Florida last week. I thought Daniel Day-Lewis was outstanding in it.ReplyDelete
And this is so your fault. And CheesyMike's. Mostly CheesyMike's. But also yours. :-)
The white snow flakes absorbed the light from the street lamps? Then how did you see them? For that matter, how did you find your way to the theater? This entire post, short as it is, lacks a certain scientific credibility that I find troubling.ReplyDelete
Also, this prompt had better not be your fault. Because it sucks.
I wondered if this flick was any good. I'm sure the popcorn was good, but I must say I make better popcorn than movie theaters. It's the bomb.ReplyDelete
I really need to see this movie. It's eerie how much Daniel Day Lewis looks like LincolnReplyDelete
This movie was a guilty pleasure for me. I expected it to be more jokey and tongue-in-cheek than it actually turned out to be. It's a movie with a comedic premise, but executed with a completely straight-faced tone. My fiance was bored, but I really got a kick out of it.ReplyDelete
I just did.ReplyDelete
Oh, you mean to physically go to Finland and say that. I thought you meant in the comment section of your blog. Silly me.
The likeness really is striking. :)ReplyDelete
You do, huh? You'll have to prove that to me sometime.ReplyDelete
Mostly CheesyMike's. though. And yours. Totally yours.ReplyDelete
Really? Wow, that's pretty exciting!ReplyDelete
Yes, definitely. Especially if there's alcohol and food involved. ;)ReplyDelete
You have discount movie theaters? Life is so unfair.ReplyDelete
Ohh, now I must see it.ReplyDelete
I don't mind proving, but there's that big pond in between that might make it hard. ;)ReplyDelete
Pesky little pond. I'll just give you call next time I'm across the pond, then?ReplyDelete
