Last Friday, Vivian and I had a night at the opera and got to see The Pirates of Penzance at the Omaha Orpheum theater. I’d never seen an opera before, much less a Gilbert and Sullivan production, and we really enjoyed the show. The terrible seats in the upper balcony, however, were another story. I had to sit sideways during the production because there was so little legroom, putting my feet up on the seat in front of me when the ushers weren’t looking. I swear people must have been two feet shorter when the theater was built.
On Saturday night, Jenny celebrated her birthday with another costume party. I’m always impressed with how our friends seem to go all out on Halloween. Vivian and I just came as ourselves (well, our real selves!)
