Yesterday Fish and I had so much fun. We started our day with meeting his boss for lunch in the Santa Monica/Brentwood area. Los Angeles is such a funny place. You get off the freeway and you’re instantly greeted with a handful of tweakers and busted up cars. Roll about a block down the street and your smack dab in the middle of expensive cars and parents walking their babies in trendy strollers while walking the family dog that is wearing a diamond encrusted collar. Guess where we ate? Not with the tweakers! Although is was a little eerie dining a few doors down from the restaurant that that Nicole Simpson visited before her death.
Fish’s boss was kind enough to treat for lunch. It was good Italian food. I even decided to splurge and had chocolate flan for dessert. After lunch, Fish and I said our goodbyes and jumped back onto the
parking lot freeway to drive 15 miles to the venue where John Lithgow was performing. It should have taken us no more than 20 minutes. It ended up taking us 45 minutes. We made a very smart decision in deciding to use valet parking and ran a few yards right into the theater. We had 5 minutes to use the restroom and then ran to our seats.
As Fish predicted before we left, we were surrounded by what he refers to as “blue hairs”. This was fine though, as we really enjoy the elderly. No, really. I’m not trying to be funny. I’m very at ease around senior citizens. Maybe because Fish and I are just a couple of old souls. The show was fantastic. John Lithgow is an amazing storyteller and there were moments during the show where I didn’t even recognize him as he was acting out different characters of the story. Fantastic!
After the show we decided it would be a good idea to get back into our own neighborhood and see if we had time to eat dinner before going home. My parents had been kind enough to watch the girls all day and I figured that they were probably getting a little tired as the sun was coming down. Unfortunately, we had been battling traffic all day it it was just as bad by nightfall. We decided to plan for dinner out another night.
I’m looking forward to our next date!
