My niece, Cassidy, took me and her mother to Dinner Theater last Saturday night.
Girl’s Night Out!
And we all needed it.
Cassidy tried to go with her husband the weekend before, but he didn’t like it, and they ended up leaving before it was over . . .
Katy’s husband had accidentally set fire to the back pasture at their place . . .
And My Cowboy had spent half the week in the hospital.
We were ready for some fun!
The event was held at the Catholic School in a town about 25 miles away. We got there early so we could stand in line for good seats, and we did get good seats. Which is extra good, or I wouldn’t have been able to see a thing!
As folks piled in, what I found funny is that almost every group was carrying a cooler packed with alcohol. They didn’t serve it at the dinner, but evidently, you were free to bring as much of your own as you wished, and boy, did folks have coolers!
None of the three of us won the prize.
They served us a wonderful dinner of pork chops, cheesy taters, and sweet ‘n’ sour green beans, with hot rolls, preceded by a yummy salad, and followed by a yummy dessert.
After eating enough to nearly be comatose, there was a brief intermission before the play began. Some of the men gathered in a gaggle at the back of the room, evidently needing to get up and move around after that feed.
The play was called “The Money in Uncle George’s Suitcase”, written by Pat Cook. With only 8 cast members, one set, and lots of good laughs, it was completely delightful. The time passed without us even realizing it.
As we were all lined up and leaving the auditorium when it was over, someone knocked over an entire table of glasses, bottles, and dishes. We could hear it rattling and bouncing and shattering all over, and it seemed to go on forever, but probably didn’t seem as interminable to us as it did to the person who did it! When it finally ended, everyone clapped and cheered!
It was a good Girl’s Night Out. I’m suggesting to my niece and my sister that we do it again soon.
