Show Boat

Yesterday afternoon after church, my mother-in-law treated me to a play. We went to see Show Boat. It was my first play since I was kid when I went to go see Pinocchio.
We had a hard time getting there but looking back it was quite hysterical.
Well we couldn't find the darn theatre at first. So we pulled over to ask this lady who didn't know either. We stopped into a florist to ask for directions and she didn't know either. Someone in the shop was giving us directions but they turned out to be wrong. So we're driving along lost and thinking that we're not going to make it in time. Then when we stopped at a red light. My mother-in-law turned and seen in between two buildings the theatre on the other side of the block. So we were like, how in the heck were we going to get over there? So we got over there but then we just followed other cars into some parking garage that was by the theatre. So we're all going around and around and around. Then to all the cars surprise, we all hit a dead end. I never heard of a parking garage with a dead end. So the whole line of cars are inching back to try and back up. It was ridiculous! So finally when we found the way out of that garage, we drove up ahead and we seen some parking spaces along the curb with those parking meters. So Mom parks the car haphazardly and we scurry to get out of the car. Then we're looking at the parking meter to find out how much money to put in. I was telling my Mom that she was putting money in on the wrong side of the parking meter. So she started to add the quarters on the other side as I'm frantically looking for quarters in my wallet. Then these two men walk by and say, "Excuse me ladies. But it's Sunday. You don't have to pay for parking on Sunday." So my mother and I just looked at each other and started laughing. Then the two guys were like, "Are you having a bad day?" Then my Mom was like, "Yeah sort of." Then my mom was saying to me how this would be funny for our blogs as we're running two blocks to the theatre. That guy just turned around and said with a smile, "Yeah I bet." We looked so funny! We're running and running. We finally make it into the theatre with our hair blown from the cold wind. We get our tickets and then the usher ushers us to our seats. When I seen out seats, I was like, "Are those our seats?!" No problem. Our seats were up against the wall. We just had to cross in front of just about, I don't know, 12 people! So we're banging into there knees and stepping all over their toes. My Mom accidentally hit a mans head with her purse. But there we were. We had made it in time for the show! Stay tuned! To be continued... :-)
