Overheard from the backseat while driving along Williamson Road in Roanoke, Virginia.
Papa Moseley: That’s where the Buch’s had their first date. Used to be the Lee Theater. (pointing at a clearly vacant-for-years shell of a building)
Momma Moseley: Where *we* had *our* first date doesn’t even exist anymore…
PM: The Jefferson.
MM: To see the “Dracula” and “Frankenstein” double feature. [sarcastically] How romantic.
PM: Mmmhmmm. Well, it was supposed to be seeing Jim Croce at the Coliseum.
MM: Yeah, but Moose couldn’t get the tickets afterall, remember?
PM: Mmmhmmm… Moose. Wasn’t long on follow-through.
