About the time it was announced that tickets could be purchased months in advance for the new Star Wars film, I made a decision. I decided not to see it until my son came home from his mission.
Yesterday he finished up and came home.
Today we saw the film.
And it was still in the theater.
And it was amazing!
You might be wondering if it was difficult for me to wait three months to see a film we've been waiting, well, decades to see. It was, but only the first few weeks it was out. Since we usually don't see films in the theater, not seeing a show was not unusual. And because I think there's such a reverence for the film and the franchise, no one blurted out any spoilers. Of course, they were there if I'd looked for them, but I didn't and I went into the theater this afternoon pretty much knowing as much as those who saw it opening day knew.
Yes, I waited. My son and I saw the film for the first time. The film was fantastic, but what made it even more special was the wait; it was worth the wait.
