I met two "A Christmas Story" cast members today

Yesterday after I got home from vacation, my mom mentioned that one of the local movie theaters was going to be showing "A Christmas Story" on Saturday.

 

In addition, 2 of the cast members were going to be there answering questions before the show, and selling autographs/memorabillia after the movie.

 

I was mostly interested in just seeing the movie on the big screen. I love this movie, and I watch at least part of it every year.

 

Anyway, we had a great time! I can't remember the last time I sat through the movie from start to finish, instead of just having it on in the background while wrapping presents or decorating the tree.

 

After the show, we waited at the end of the very long line to buy an ornament (Ralphie in his pink bunny suit). I got the ornament box signed by both cast members, AND I got my picture taken with them.

 

On the left is Ian Petrella, who played Randy (Ralphie's little brother - "I can't put my arms down!")

 

And on the right is Scott Schwartz, who played Flick - the kid who got his tongue stuck to the flag pole.

 

Those guys were both way shorter than me! As you can see, I had to crouch down.
