Popcorn and drinks are great ways to keep a child quiet.
Drinks provide the child with a need to go to the restroom which he/she wanted to check out anyway.
I don’t know whether it is the novelty of the urinal (boys), or the number of stalls (girls). I do know that children love to wash their hands in the movie restroom.
The soap dispenser either gives out foam or some pink liquid. Either one has a novelty about it.
The faucet may even be automatic, which is delightful to me if not to the child.
Then there is the hand drying bit: paper or air? Doesn’t matter.
Or, at least, it didn’t matter until recently. Enter the new dryer on the movie block:
Feel the Power!
Those are the honest-to-God words on the machine. I am telling you the truth.
This dryer blew back the skin on my hand while it air-blasted the water. Imagine a little seven-year old girl with her five year-old sister placing their hands under that power blower. Then their faces. Then their hair….other body parts, clothing…
We will never leave this bathroom. That hand dryer will keep us entertained forever.
Man, we paid $28 to go to this damn bathroom. That doesn’t even count the popcorn. I hope Grandpa likes the movie.
