9. I didn't even think about it and just got tickets to the Napoleon movie for Friday.

Just happens the movie theater we were going to is located in the middle of one of the West Coast’s largest Outlet Malls.

A trip from our home to the theater usually takes around 7 minutes..with all the traffic heading into and out from the Outlet Mall on Friday it was bumper to bumper traffic and took us 35 minutes to get to the theater parking lot.

There were spots on the sidewalks around the Outlet Mall that had so many shoppers walking I couldn’t see space between
groups of shoppers.

I don’t shop there often so I didn’t think about it being so busy..but it was crazy busy.
