Mission Impossible: Movie Theater Edition

Alternate title for this post: My secret life as a food smuggler.

While I was in college, my coworkers and I decided to go to a movie. However, because "ordinary" or "sane" don't exist in my vocabulary, we decided to make the outing a contest as well.

We thought we'd see who could smuggle the most creative food item into the theater to share with the group. And since "harebrained" is my middle name, I decided to go BIG.

We all arrived at the theater and sat in a long row, each of us waiting for the lights to dim so we could break out our contraband.

My wife and I pooled our resources (including her big purse), and left with the title of smuggling champions.

She had a few things in her purse, and I practically had a bulletproof vest with all the plastic bags of stuff I had lining my coat.

So, what did we bring?

12 cups
2 bottles of water
2 flavor packets (to turn the water into juice)
12 paper plates
12 napkins
12 forks
1 chocolate pie

Illegal pie in a movie theater is probably one of the best desserts I've ever had.

I went to a movie once and this kid next to me started poking me, I turned to him and he says "hey lady, want some chicken?" His family had smuggled in 2 buckets of KFC with all the fixins'. I declined the chicken, but keep that in the back of my mind for when I have a big family.

Way impressive! And we thought a pint of Ben & Jerry's was sneaky . . .

Wow. I never think of smuggling. Then again, I've never been a rule breaker.
I'm celestial like that.

Amazing. And I used to think I was cool sneaking cans of soda in my socks when I wore wide-leg jeans.

a couple of friends of mine won a very similar competition by smuggling in a huge watermelon disguised as a fetus.
