I had the opportunity last night to go and see the Broadway Musical "Wicked" last night with my sister and her daughters Rikki and Dawni.
They arrived to pick me up at about 4:30. I quickly paid Dawni for my ticket because she never sent me an invoice in the mail and I have owed her the money since February. I consider myself lucky that she did not sell my ticket. We left about 5:00 after the B-Dog left. Rikki wanted to take him home with her cause he is such a sweetie.
We made a quick stop at Gordman's to buy emergency pants for Rikki because she was the only one of us wearing a skirt. She did not want to stand out like a sore thumb. Just a reminder to all out there that like to shop at Gordman's take your smart phone with you because you can use a online coupon for extra saving! Kari was also able to find Wes's favorite Cologne there and pick some up for his birthday!
We got in the car and made our way downtown. We were trying to find our way to the Capitol Theatre and Dawni asked what direction we were heading. I said north and then she preceded to mumble Never Eat Side Walks... Never Eat Side Walks........Well, at least that is what I thought that she said. She was saying Never Eat Soggy Waffles.......but if you think about it.....it really makes more sense to say Never Eat Side Walks.....because it would hurt your teeth.......but Never Eat Soggy Waffles......what if they were soggy because they were smothered in maple syrup??? The it would be totally delicious to eat a soggy waffle. Just saying.
We finally found a place to park and we exited the car to find some where to eat for Dawni. The poor girl had only had a cheeseburger and two rice crispy treats to eat all day long. She was practically starving and about to blow away because she is so skinny. You would think that it would be easy to find a place downtown to get a bite to eat, but we found it rather difficult. We had to walk 2 1/2 blocks just to find a Subway. Very slim pickins around the Capitol Theatre.
Subway was going to be closing in about 15 minutes so they had very few bread choice. Note, we were the only 4 in the restaurant. Kari wanted to be difficult and order a breakfast item, but the lady would not let her get a 3 inch sub, Even if I wanted a 3 inch sub too. She also could not give her the egg, ham and bacon sandwich. Only egg and ham. This was puzzling because you could clearly see the bacon in the meat section. Better luck next time Kari. Rules are Rules after all.
As we were walking to the Theater, you could see people lined up out front. I can't remember who asked why the back up, but Dawni said they were "Groping". Me and Kari would not be okay with that unless Kendall and Wes were there!
After using the restroom and buying some souvenirs, we made our way to the seats. Which were excellent by the way. Thanks Dawni! While we were buying souvenirs, I actually found out what Wicked was about. Then we sat down and waited. The lady in the isle selling water sold last chance to buy water before the show starts for about 5 minutes and then it was time for the show.
It was "Totally Wicked!" I loved it! The cast did an amazing job. Thanks for inviting me Ladies!
After the show we exited the building and made out way to the parking garage. Note to everyone. It is a bad idea to park in the lowest level parking along the back wall. If you park in said area, then you must wait for practically every other car in the garage to exit the garage before you are able to.
Thanks for the fun evening!
