The Mind Wobbles

So many things to absorb, think about, deal with and put up with - it simply makes the mind wobble...

Playing Hooky from the Opera

One of my best friends and I got season tickets to the opera this year, we do Sunday matinees - and for the most part it's been great. But Sunday when we were supposed to go see "Samson and Delilah" well, we didn't really feel like dealing with the heavy drama of the opera itself and all the logistical issues that go along with it (parking, etc.). So, at the last minute just as we were supposed to take the correct exit for the opera...we didn't.

We already had plans to have dinner later that night with a group of friends (The Culinarily Adventurous Girls Club(CAGC) - I'll post about that another time - it's a hoot!) at a Russian restaurant, so we went ahead and drove up to the area early to get out bearings, grab some lunch, maybe catch a movie.

As we were driving around we unexpectedly came across a fabulous Bengali restaurant the CAGC had already been to. So we stopped there for lunch - delicious! Then we went to a nearby theater and saw the movie "The Namesake" - coincidentally about a Bengali family! The movie, was great, as was the book - I highly recommend both.

Then we met for Russian food! Another success!

So...not that I'm advocating playing hooky or shirking plans as a rule - but every now and then, it really pays off!

Sometimes playing hooky is just what the doctor ordered, especially when culinary offerings replace whatever you are playing hooky from.
