I went to a little show Sunday, a comedy play in a little lovely theater café, with JulieAnne, her husband, and Lito.
And yes, it was mother’s day, and yes, we shared it with our moms. We did this later, when it no longer counted towards mother’s points.
The play was super. JJ-JulieAnne’s husband, and Lito proved it with their tears of laughter. I only laughed my special laugh that I usually don’t take out of my home because it was too much funny to handle, but I didn’t cry. It had been YEARS since I had seen any comedic-type of live show. Not that I’m particularly fond of them, but this specific kind, public interactive, is really good when it’s well done and I respect that kind of work a lot.
And I got to drink wine. Have I mentioned how much I enjoy wine now? Is this age-related? Because I NEVER cared for wine, and now when I go out, to this place for example, I get all exited because I get to drink wine! Yummy delicious wine that I don’t even know the name of! And I’m not kidding, I just ask for a glass of red wine and they always manage to get me one that tastes like heaven.
You know, JulieAnne and me, we walked to the bathroom together once. It was awesome; she only rested her hand on my shoulder to walk behind me. People still looked at us all weird; it’s the first time I go out with her to a place where I could see people’s faces looking at her and it was quite an experience. To see someone like her, that doesn’t like that kind of pitiful response from strangers, manage it with much grace, I was very proud.
You almost can’t tell that she can’t walk entirely normal yet, she just wobbles a little. I think it’s the most awesome wobble ever, but she doesn’t think it’s that amusing.
Still, I got to go out with her and laugh until it hurt and there was no wheelchair or walker around us, and that’s good enough for me.*
