The Humiliation of Certainty
Sherry Caris

A long time ago I marched into the cinema theatre holding three tickets and my two friends in tow and proceeded to our aisle and seat numbers only to find someone already sitting in them.

Me: Aha! You’re in the wrong seats!

Them: Aahaa! You’re in the wrong theater!

Me.. Sudden turn about, berating my friends to get out as quickly as possible so I can hide myself in my seat in the adjacent theater.
