"Things went south" means that there was some trouble. Here is what happened. I went to the ticket screen. I looked up at the schedule monitor above me. It was then that I saw that the 2:30 "Hans Solo" movie was in Japanese. OMG! The English version started at 3PM. That did not fit my schedule. It was 2:00. I looked at the other movies that were starting soon. I found "Only the Brave". It is based on a true story. It is about forest fire fighters in Utah. Well, I saw a Japanese movie last time so I chose this one this time. I couldn't use my credit card again at the monitor again, so I purchased my ticket at the counter. I then went straight to the theater. There was no one there! I thought that was a bad omen. And sure enough (exactly as I thought) the movie was not good. But I watched it till the end. It was typical. It had a sad ending, too. After wards (After the movie) I got my sandals. They were BE-A-U-TI-FUL! Then I went home. After dinner, I had just enough daylight to do some weeding next door. Not a bad day off.
