The Bourne Bonamine*

Friday, August 24th, 2007

Janet and I seldom see a movie on the big screen, usually waiting for the DVD release (in fact we often don’t watch movies until they’ve been retired from the new release section). However since we had enjoyed the first two movies about Jason Bourne, we took an evening awhile back to take in The Bourne Ultimatum. When we were well into the movie, near the end of one of the many chases involving hand-held cameras with a lot of jerky movement, I noticed that Janet seemed to be suffering. I’ve known her long enough that it didn’t take long to realize that she had a case of motion sickness. After scraping together the little money we had on us, she left the cinema and went next door to the drugstore, where although she didn’t have enough for a full package of Bonamime*, the nice pharmacist sold her two pills for $1.00. Within a few minutes she was back in her seat, and was able to enjoy the end of the movie. Motion sickness pills have been put to good use on most of our car trips, and of course on our rare flights, but this was the first time I’ve seen them used to survive a movie. Thanks Pfizer for making that amazing product.

(By the way, I really enjoyed The Bourne Ultimatum. And Janet enjoyed the part that she saw)
