One year, for his birthday, I bought him VIP tickets to see Dralion in Dallas. We were living in Kansas City and had driven to Oklahoma City to spend thanksgiving with his sister's family. We drove to Dallas in the afternoon, had a blast at the show, and drove back to OKC that night.
As part of the VIP treatment we had champagne and hors d'ouevres in the VIP tent, and hubby even got a cuddle!! ROFL!!! To this day, it remains my favorite. Of course, it had nothing to do with one of the acts where this
Being in S. Florida, we're fortunate enough to have a lot of travelling CdS shows come through. Every two years, right around his birthday, a new show comes to Miami, and we do that. Every other year, an older travelling show comes to a venue in Ft. Lauderdale and we do that too. :D
To date, we have Alegria, La Nouba, Saltimbanco, Varekai, Corteo, and Kooza under our belts.
Remember the juggler I mentioned? Check him out:
*backtracking to Nov 2010*
Me: Just got an email from Cirque. They're doing a Michael Jackson show.
Me: Yup, calling it "The Immortal Tour." Wow, they put that together quick!! (MJ had just passed away in June.)
Him: Maybe they were working on a show with him?
Me: Didn't read anything about it though... maybe it's kinda a farewell thing I guess. Wanna go?
Him: When is it?
Me: The weekend of Mar. 2-4th. We could do the 2nd. Would be easier to drive to Miami if it's not the weekend.
Him: Sure. Will be nice.
*Mid-February 2011, watching tv at home*
Him: When is that MJ show?
Me: Mar something... *pulls up email* March 2nd!!!! Holy crap!! Good thing you remembered.
Him: Yeah. Remember that time you thought it was a 7:30 show and we were 30 minutes late? (Umm... yeah.... but that's the story for another day..... ROFL!!!)
*End of February, 2011... on the way to work*
Me: You know, those tickets were for Mar. 2nd right???
Him: Yup, that's what the email said.
Me: ... Huh....
Him: .....??? *long-suffering silence* (this happens a lot... LOL!!!)
Me: Well, I was teaching Dylan yesterday and was writing the date.... *counts fingers*....
Me: The 2nd is a Wednesday.
Him: How can that be?
Me: *pulls out phone... check calendar* Yup... the 2nd is a Wednesday.... did we see Friday instead of Wednesday?
Him: Both of us??!
Me: ...... ????.....!!!!!.....?????
*At work... pulls up email... *
Me: *muttering* Nope... it says Friday, Mar. 2nd.... .... .... 2012!!!!!!!
Him: (on IM) .........
Me: *hysterically laughing* That's like NEXT YEAR!!!!!!!! How can it be next year???
Me: WILL WE REMEMBER????!!!!!!!!
Him: We'd better....
Me: Huh... I guess they didn't put the show together quickly after all....
Him: ........ (I have friends that say they feel sorry for him... I wonder why.... ROFLMAO!!!!)
