Today was a great day
but a busy day.
I left the hotel room around ten AM
and arrived back around 8 PM.
I have just about walked
my little suburban feet off
and have developed my
first corn. Ow!
Thanks to everyone
who was hoping for Wicked tickets for me.
I didn't get the ticket for the first few rows
For $25 I got 6 rows back,
Downside- it was to the far left.
As in like, the leftmost seat.
However, I knew that very little
in this musical takes place from
the corners or far back of the stage
so it was quite a deal.
Having seen Wicked on tour in Baltimore
and now having seen Wicked in Chicago,
I will say that the Baltimore performance was better.
The show today used both the understudies
for the lead roles, so I'm sure that was part of it.
I was happy to get Kate both a
program and a t-shirt that says
"Defy Gravity" which I hope she will love.
I still need to pick something up
for the boys.
I walked down the Navy Pier yesterday
to get them those rockets
but then I got to thinking about
airport security and the likelihood
that they would let me board the aircraft
with rockets in my hand.
I'll let you guess what I decided.
Couple of funny nuggets for you:
When it rains,
and you left your umbrella at the hotel
and you still have blocks and blocks left to walk,
you will stoop to the lowest levels of degradation.
I walked around with a tourist brochure
of Chicago on my head.
I have no sense of direction.
I have gotten lost and turned around
more times than anyone could imagine.
Often, I am within a block of my destination
but have no clue of this
and go marching off in the wrong direction.
Tomorrow I will have a pretty low key morning
I need to nurse my corn. lol
and then I will be on my way home!
