A Night at the Symphony....

I was fortunate enough to be a part of a very special evening.  Brigid and I accompanied Dave to the Indy Symphony last night.  Beforehand, the lovely Brigid and I drew straws as to how we would dress for the evening.  It turned out that she was Classy and I was Tartie (unfortunately no way to put a heart over the i).  I arrived at the new Range with some time to spare to change clothes and share some giggles.  I also had a run in with TSA Canine Agent-in-Training Barkley, but there will be more on that tomorrow.

Dave arrived and off we went downtown to the Symphony.  We made our grand entrance with Dave in between Brigid and I, arms linked, and smiles all around for the poor men with only one woman.  Interestingly enough, there was a gaggle of nuns (which led to a lot of conversation about the proper term for a group of nuns).  As an FYI, the proper term is a superfluity of nuns.

Having no shame, and resigning myself to going to hell anyway (to the point of picking out the proper handbasket), I almost gave two older women whiplash in the bathroom by commenting that I wasn't sure that the new lipstick I bought is duct-tape proof (Brigid and I are still searching for the lipstick that will stand up to duct tape the way it did on NCIS).  Also, I made such comments during the concert into Dave's ear such as "Hey, isn't this the part when the Orion slave chick makes her entrance?" or (when several of the nuns went past) "Pssst, hey Dave, the nuns are on the run!"

Dave was the perfect gentleman and fantastic dinner companion even though Brigid and I did vex him by opening our own car doors once "Ladies, would you PLEASE wait for me to open the door for you!"  And the valet parking guys couldn't figure out how to get his key out of the car so they "parked it (unlocked) really close (next to the street vendor) so they could keep a good eye on it".  I got a hearty chuckle and some looks when he picked us up at the door of the restaurant for the trip back to the New Range and I said "Hey mister, we'll make it worth your while for a ride."

It was a great evening, there was much laughter, good music, Star Trek references and nuns.  Thank you Dave for putting together such an amazing and fun evening (and thanks for the chocolate truffle and the creme brulee as well)!!

ETA:  And another thanks, Dave, for taking me to my first symphony.   I've been to operas, to plays, to Broadway, but never to a symphony.  I appreciated your and Brigid's insights into the music and the artistry involved.

So glad to hear the three of you enjoyed the evening!
You and Brigid are a couple of classy ladies, and Dave one lucky guy!

No worries--I'm thinking you've had some other things on your mind, like learning dialysis procedures and such..... Thanks again for a great time!
