Movies with my dad

I love to watch movies with my dad, my dad loves to watch movies, too.

On the first day of every month, my dad takes me to the cinema so that we can watch a movie together.

Normally, I choose the movie that we watch but this time my dad wants to choose the movie.

My dad wants to choose the movie because this week at the cinema they have Star Wars.

Star Wars is my dad's favourite film so he is very excited.

But I am also excited because I like Star Wars, but I am not as excited as my dad.

Anyway, I don't care about the movie that we watch, I only care that I can spend time with my dad.

Spending time with my dad is the most important thing in the world to me, so the first day of every month is always my favourite day.

Oh, and I love the snacks at the cinema. The snacks are the second most important thing in the world to me.
