Missing Sundance...Again

A few days ago, I was going to post a joke on social media. It was going to go something like this:

I forgot to buy tickets to the Sundance Film Festival. That makes 38 years in a row that I've forgotten to buy tickets.

I know it's not that funny, but it's 100% true. I've never attended the Sundance Film Festival. I could say that I haven't really missed out, but that's not necessarily true. I'm sure had I gone I would have had a good time--maybe not every time, but most of the time.

But we're not "activity" people. We don't go see movies in the theaters. That's mostly an income issue. But we also don't go see plays or sporting events. Nor do we go to the park or go skiing or do other things. Getting tickets to a movie playing in Park City or Salt Lake during January--not really our cup of tea, and if someone gave us tickets, we'd most likely give them away.

Maybe one day we'll go to the Sundance Film Festival. Maybe one day we'll become "activity" people. I guess you never really know what the future will bring. But for this year's film festival, we'll be missing it, again.

  1. I used to be a hardcore "sundancer" What I found is that there are some fantastic movies, and some less than fantastic movies. When you find one that's great, it's really fun. But it can be drudgery to sit through some of these movies...
