Reading the Fine Print

Yesterday Prince E and I went to the grocery store and bought a lot of frozen meals. As a reward, Dominick's gave us two free tickets to see Ice Age: The Meltdown. We were, of course, less than thrilled. I tried to figure out who I could give it to, as our association with children is somewhat limited.

Today I was looking at the tickets again because I was going to email details of them to a friend to possibly give them to her brother and sister-in law, when I noticed some small, exciting, fine print. GOOD FOR ANY MOVIE.

Ha! Despite the large cartoon drawings of animals all over the front of the tickets, I can actually redeem them at our favorite art cinema! Imagine going to see a foreign language film with free Ice Age tickets. Fabulous! The best part is that they are good up to $12 each! We might actually go see a move AFTER 3pm. Actually, we probably won't, but we COULD.

Yes, I realize it is selfish of me to keep them now that I was going to give them away, but I hadn't told the friend about them yet, so it isn't like a take-back.


  • thats a good deal. I love it when things like that happen to me..which is rare

  • I thought I was the only one that only goes to matinees now. Congratulations on finding merit in the fine print. Let's hope the art cinema's ticket taker has good eyes too.

  • A few questions:
    1. What do you have against Ice Age?
    2. Which frosen meals?
    3. How many did you get?
    4. Are they any good?

  • Anne: Don't worry, if they don't notice the fine print, I will be sure to point it out!

    Llama: the Smart Ones and Healthy choices were on sale. I got a General Tso's one that I haven't tried which I hope will be good. The chicken parmesean and fettucine alfredo are pretty good. I also got the Smart Ones equivalent of a hot pocket, which was veggie. I had that for lunch today and it was quite yummy. I think it had spinach in it.

    Nothing against ice age, just doesn't seem like something I would like.

    I think we got 10 or so
