As you may know (cuz I’ve told you every personal story I have), my mom’s and my claim to fame is that we walked out of E.T.
In my precocious youth, I went in believing (thanks to the review I’d read in Time) that E.T. was going to be the 2001 of my generation.
About halfway thru the movie, I thought my mom was crying during one of the sad parts. I checked, and it turned out she was laughing. I nudged her and said: Let’s split. We did. Giggling as we hurried up the aisle.
