A Cup of Joe...

by Joe Gonzales

As you all know, the kids and I enjoy watching super hero movies. It’s our thing. Anytime a new one comes to theaters, we are there opening night. Well, when I say “we” I mean me, Diego and Emma. As I’ve told you before, Jessica doesn’t really enjoy these types of movies. And as for Clarissa, getting her to sit through an entire movie without making trip-after-trip to the restroom....well, that’s still a work in progress. This past Thursday night, Justice League premiered at movie theaters everywhere. I’ve had our tickets for this shown ever since they went on sale back in October.
