Mr. UT and I rarely go out to movies, because I can not hear most of the dialogue.
We watch most movies at home so I have closed caption.
(See this post about my cochlear implant.)
So I was so surprised there is a really cool device that you can get closed caption on movies in theaters!
We saw Wonder Woman, and I was amazed at how much I could now understand by reading. Jokes were the best! I laughed right along with other people!
I am so happy about this!
Not all movies have closed caption, but the major ones all do.
Now, I have to say something about movies.
I used to think of going to movies as a time to drink. Before the movies, at the movies, and after the movies.
In fact, how I could watch a movie and not drink was beyond me.
I am not proud of this fact, but one time I left Mr. UT in the theatre and went to have a drink by myself at a bar. Ugh.
This time we kind of went nuts, and had popcorn, Twizlers, and Peanut M&M’s.
It cost us a mint, but how much fun munching and crunching and reading through the movie!!
Every time I post a picture of us smiling, it’s a real thing. The smiles are real, the happiness is real. We are in a far better place not drinking.
In my drinking past, the smiling photos would have a lot of pain about my drinking behind them.
I want to show everyone that you can be sober, have good times, live life, kiss, and look forward to more!
