SOL challenge 2015 Day 4
I have said it before, I am officially sick and tired of this winter! I seems like we have an new snowfall every other day. I have had my fill of shoveling and reshoveling the driveway. I have had it with cleaning off the cars. I need to do something that will get my mind off the cold, snow and ice. I refuse to think about the inch and a half of sleet and freezing rain coating things outside my window.
I know. I will jump ahead to August. Kathy and I both celebrate our birthdays that month. That is also the time we treat ourselves to an overnight in New York City. We always go on a Wednesday to that we can see two shows, a matinee and evening performance. There are a few shows that have opened or will be opening between now and then that I wouldn’t mind seeing,
Talking it over and looking at the listing on playbill.com we decide on what we would like to see. The next step is to see if tickets are available. I admit that I am a bit of a snob. I like center orchestra seats. I also like aisle seats because it is easier to get out and run to the restroom during intermission. There are no lines that way.
I check out the first show, It Shoulda Been You. This is a new musical with Tyne Daly, Sierra Boggess, and David Burtka among others. It is billed as a wedding comedy. We now have tickets for the matinee. Next up is to find a show for the evening.
Kathy would like to see On the Town which is based on the Gene Kelly Frank Sinatra movie. We luck out. Center orchestra aisle seats are available. We now have them.
Now with tickets in hand, or in the drawer until needed, all that is left to do is get train tickets, book a hotel room, and decide where we want to eat between shows.
Having even these partial plans in place, I know I can cope with what is outside. After all, the weatherman did say it will reach 40 degrees by this afternoon so all that fell last night should melt. We all know that the weatherman is always right. It;s a good thing, too, because that will then make room for the snow that we might get tonight.
