What's It Like?



So, I am leaving a restaurant with a friend and I look over at the movie theatre and see this line. A crowd of people who are camping out over night so they can see the first showing of the new Indiana Jones movie. A movie that doesn't start until Thursday. My typical response would be to wonder aloud what is their deal? This time I was struck by the dedication and energy of their excitement. I can not, for the life of me, think of a single thing that I would sleep on the ground overnight to see. I would certainly never be so excited about the idea of it that I would take the extra step of dressing up in costume.... But, how cool is that to be so excited about anything?
