Drunk at the Movies

Welcome to Saturday Centus!  I think I should explain this since I kinda scared someone one time (they didn't know it was a story), hehe.  Saturday Centus takes place over at Jenny Matlock ... where Mr. Jenny picks a prompt each weekend, and us faithful followers write a 100 word story with it ... mine are fiction.  I love this because I can let my imagination roam free.  The prompt is bold!

I settled into the comfortable movie theater seat with awkward 3D glasses perched on my nose, a small tub of popcorn on my lap, and a bottle of water lodged into the seat holder.  I smiled at my kids tearing up the front row with friends.  

The lights darkened; I peered around the glasses to confirm the other moms relaxing into their chairs.  I leaned forward and pried the water bottle from holder.  

I thought about the bottle marked as water, although the only thing water about it was the label.  Securing the glasses to cover my eyes, I undid the top of the bottle.  

For a brief moment I thought about how easy it would be to ask the mom closest to me for help, but then I took a sip.
