Sneaking food into the theatre is the new awesome

Everyone knows how to sneak food into movie theatres to avoid paying one million dollars per peanut butter cup, but the gholdston girls know how to do it in style.

Step one:
Place smuggled items into stylish purse and walk into the theatre without looking suspicious or saying things to the person taking your ticket like, “don’t look at my purse.”

Step two:
Once safely inside dark theatre, remove smuggled items from stylish purse and wave them triumphantly around. Candy apples!?! What a brilliant smuggled theatre food.

Step three:
Admire your choice in food – gourmet apples covered in chocolate and cinnamon and mn'ms. Unwrap your food proudly and place it in the cardboard tray you stole from the concession stand. Make everyone a little jealous that they are relegated to eating jujus and you have a delicious healthy apple treat.

Step four:
Ignore the dirty looks you might be getting from your neighbors as you eat your crunchy apple SO LOUDLY. They are all just jealous. Laugh a little louder than necessary when Luke Wilson gets a shark thrown at him, just to rub it in that you are having a better time than anyone else in the entire theatre.

Step five:
Have a race with your sister to see who can eat their apple fastest. Lose on purpose and then laugh when her stomach hurts from eating too quickly

Step six:
Stop to take a photo in front of the poster of the movie you are pretty sure is going to be the blockbuster of the summer. Plan on bringing candy apples when you go see that as well.

    besides saying that snakes on a plane is going to be the second best movie ever, i would like to ask if you aquired your candy apples at voodoo apples.

    candy apples... priceless.

    i once ate chipotle in a movie, with a soda. in a can.

    i once also ate a sandwich. it's fun for people to look at you eating a full course meal, and they are jealous.

    peanut butter and jealous sandwiches...

    mmm candied apples, wanna send one to me?

    one of the plus factors of being a mom is having a plethora of very large bags, usually used as diaper bags, of course, but at night they can be wonderfully transformed into non-theatre food smuggling devices. every one should go out and get a baby purely for this reason...

    When did you and Kathryn become the exact same person?!

    Hello twinners!!!

    So when I saw the promo for "Snakes on a Plane" I almost shot diet coke through my nose. I don't think they could have possibly thought of a more creative name for a movie. Impossible.

    i know! the only way you can tell the difference between kathryn and i is that i have the mn'm apple and she has the chocolate one.

    seriously. sneaking unlikely food into the movie theatre is the best thing ever. chipotle is impressive, because the mexican food smell will permeate throughout the entire place! i think next time you should bring something that requires silverware of some sort.

    the candied apples are not voodoo. they are from my mom's work party.

    Kathryn's apple wins.

    when did kat become your mini-me? the resemblence is uncanny...

    Oh my gosh. I totally forgot that I want to see that Luke Wilson movie so bad. Thank you for helping me remember and also for sharing your food sneaking techniques.

    I went to a movie on Friday night with some friends, one of them Rob Nyland. Rob has a card where he can buy candy at the dorms and he bought $20 worth of candy on his remaining allowance for the week and we snuck it all in in my purse. I am so close to sugar diabetes.

    a. yes, bex, you and your sister are KILLING ME softly with your cuteness

    b. i once smuggled two little ceasar's pizzas AND crazy bread into a movie. beat that, suckas.

    c. i need to download a preview to that movie because i haven't seen one yet

    d. aaron, what is the first best movie ever?

  • At 2:32 PM, Blogger Manfoom said…

    First of all it is Andrew Wilson in the movie. Second of all, the only good thing is that Uma throws a shark at him, other than that, this is a horrible horrible movie. It is the Pol Pot of movies.

    if only i had a brother with matching glasses. (the two of you do have matching glasses, right?)

  • At 3:10 PM, Blogger bex said…

    our glasses are embarassingly similiar. it usually isnt a big deal since we live in different states. and for the record, if there is one, i bought mine first. and i was born first, so i pretty much invented our genes too.

    lou - please send rob and his candy card down here. i would like a sugar overload too.

    emily - where did you stick the pizzas? do they make purses or jacket pockets that large?

    and manf - i thought the movie was kind of funny*. but i guess i think pol pot** is kind of funny too.

    * true
    **not really true.

    The new fab fashion accessory here in SF is using those pizza delivery bags as purses. Perfect!

    Pol pot was only kind of funny in his first film "Khmer pretty lady!" but his second was a total flop! ("The Killing Sally Fields")

    manfoom wins this comment section

  • At 11:41 PM, Blogger dävid said…

    they were talking about pol pot on npr yesterday... i thought about how he would make a funny reference in a not so funny way.

    beat me to the punch. touche.
