Brokeboob Mountain

I went into the Day Center early yesterday. They were serving lunch ahead of schedule so that those of us who wanted to could go on a field trip. After a hearty meal of meat loaf, rice, and green beans, myself, one of the staffers, and 10 guys headed over to The Kennedy School (the brewery/hotel/theater that was kind enough to donate tickets) to watch a film.

The theater is set up in what I believe to be the old gym. The screen is on one end and there are about 400 "seats". Not regular seats, but most are old style, high backed (not exactly comfortable) chairs that would be more at home in an elderly woman's parlor or at the ends of a formal dining table. Scattered among the chairs, though mostly in the front half of the theater, are a couple dozen old style, small sofas and love seats as well as end tables (they serve beer, drinks, pizza and such at the concession stand).

The movie playing was Brokeback Mountain, and I believe the guys from the Day Center who'd chosen to attend the movie were all gay. As they filed in, they went in search of seats. There was already quite a crowd so they went down the right aisle, across the front, and up the center aisle to the rear. One of my friends looked at me and said, "There must be 50 women down there breastfeeding!! I think we'll just sit back here.." Yes, we were there during Mommy Matinee!! And the look on these guys' faces was priceless....
