Be careful what you wish for....


Tonight I was going on an adventure. With my dear pal I was going to a show called Stand Up/ Strip Down, a stand up comedy and burlesque production. I was excited because I was going with a fun friend and I have never been to a burlesque show. It was gonna be a hoot.
Well, it started out according to plan. Then when I got to the friend's place to pick her up there was no place to park except the side of the street slated for snow removal. No plows were around and I thought I'd have time to leave before they came.
WRONG! We came out and NO CAR. Towed.
So we flag down a plow and askl what to do....he says call the city. So we called and they said it would have been tickete and towed to a near by street but it wasn't in the computer yet and all we could do is walk around and try to find it.
That got tired after about 40 minutes and we flagged a cab, finding the car quickly after that. Then we get downtown, and hour late for the show and there is nowhere to park. No where...snow removal tags were up and we couldn't risk another towing evn though they'd cleared the snow already. We even double checked with the city but the guy on the phone didn't recommend taking the chance.
So we headed back to the apartment for tea and cookies and tug of war with the dog and kitty cuddles and good conversation unti her husband came home from work and I figured it was time to head home, being close to midnight.
So, I was psyched for an adventure....just not the one I got!!

Oh no! I had a similar experience before Christmas. There had been a snow storm too and I could not find a place to park except a where it said "for customers only". When I exited the restaurant at 9:50, the store was closed and my car still in the parking lot but behind an iron barrier. My friends brought me home and picked it up the following morning... Grrr...

Well, glad you were with a friend and the night wasn't a total disaster. Next time you go the show will be much better.
