From 1977 until about 1982, I saw Star Wars: A New Hope in the theaters hundreds of times. That was because I feared it would never be on cable or broadcast television so I thought it best to binge on it while it was still out there. And when it came out on home video and I bought it, I still went to the theater because that was, and still is, the best way to see it.
I had my first day off on close to a month today and I spent it watching TV and falling asleep. Also, I ate.
It’s not a wasted day, but a day doing nothing of substance that was a long time coming.
It’s 05:25 AM ET and I’m having cereal while watching an old 80’s movie called Cloak & Dagger. I saw it a few times before and saw it in the theaters when it was released in 1984.
It’s been a good day despite the inactivity. In a few hours I’ll be back to work and my personal time will be limited yet again. I’ll cherish these last few hours.
