Saturday evening, I was fortunate enough to be given tickets to a live play in our downtown area. I thoroughly enjoy plays, musicals and symphonies. Hubby? Not so much. So when I told him of our weekend plans, he tried very hard to act excited. I explained it as it had been explained to me. It is really good. Dark Comedy.
We drove downtown and did some winding around where we located a place to park just a couple of city blocks from the theatre entrance. The air was very chilly, just adding to the excitement of the evening. Our seats were the best in this quaint theater setting of a few hundred. Lights out. Now stage lights up. It was then I took a double at what I thought I saw seated in the chair on the set. A Zombie. Yep. I had dressed up and brought my hubby to a Zombie play.Let me explain, the actors in this play were excellent and had fun with their assumed roles. I don’t know how any of them were able to keep a straight face given the zombie in the room for most of the scenes. Moaning. Groaning. I doubt that hubby or I laughed in all the right places. We are not “zombie” people. It became more and more hilarious if we dared glance at each other.
About an hour in, the scene closed. The house lights came up. It was intermission time. As folks rose from their seats, we looked at each other and I KNEW what hubby was not saying in that broad smile. Now I must tell you that I finish what I start, normally. I can only recall one book ever that I began and did not complete.
Yes, even bad books, I want to know the ending! I suggested we step out and stretch our legs. Hubby was quite eager at this. We observed the many people in line for drinks. Finally, I asked, “Do you want to step outside for a cigarette?” “Yes!”, he replied. We. Don’t. Smoke. About thirty minutes later, our server at the restaurant brought our drinks. I asked Logan, “So how do YOU feel about Zombies?” To which he quickly replied, “I can honestly say that’s the first time I’ve ever been asked that one!”
Let me end this by saying this was in no way meant to be a negative reflection on this theatre production or the actors. They truly were excellent and we look forward to their next play. It was just a great giggle for two fifty-plus(ers). AND, I am more zombie informed now. In fact, I’m fairly sure I saw one walking in the park yesterday…….. 🙂
HaPPy Trick or Treating to you! ( And if you love Zombies? Go visit my blog friend, Christopher De Voss. I found myself thinking of him at the play’s open. No, he is not a zombie. But he’ll make you laugh.)
Thank you! (Some days I do feel like a zombie.)
🙂 I think we all do!!!
A truly dreadful play would have you running screaming into the night at intermission (as if zombies were in pursuit). At least you managed a casual stroll to the restaurant 😉 Happy Halloween!
🙂 I didn’t want to hurt anyones feelings!!! I feel pretty certain that zombies have feelings, too!
Happy Halloween! I actually got a foot in the trunk shot last week; I took it while driving down the road. Technically, that was probably worse than texting while driving. (I was coming up to a stop light) 🙂
I know….I had just backed out at Sonic in Claremore and had to grab the camera in the seat next to me. Hard to resist some shots! 🙂
I don’t know how many bad movies I’ve sat through, bad books I’ve finished just because I have to know how it ends! Glad I’m not the only one, haha.
🙂 Kindred spirits! ha
We. Don’t. Smoke. LOL – I like my Zombies inside the Teevee.
That’s the best place for them! (not in the backyard and kitchen as portrayed in the play! 🙂 )
I love that you got out of there! Hilarious!
And confessed it! 🙂 so ashamed!
I was just talking about zombie’s earlier today…and how much I don’t get them or like them…and then my brother sent me a photo of himself he photo shopped to make him look like a zombie!!! I just don’t get it!! 🙂
🙂 you should have gone with us!!!! haha
Think I drank a ‘Zombie’ once or twice in my life…
Kids have to love Halloween. Guess I was deprived in childhood. Feel almost heretic-like, and don’t hate me, but this is one holiday that gets very little attention from me. My wife was always the ‘spook provider.’
I’m with you on that!
We have never been “halloweeners” either. But I do like the candy. And the little guys that come to the door are fun. For about an hour, anyways! 🙂
All the zombie obsession of late needs to be explained to me! I’m not getting it! 🙂 But weren’t you just so much fun to have considered the play In the first place!
Well…..except I didn’t know it was about zombies until arrival. But that’s okay! 🙂
You have a good husband!
🙂 most days !
I like zombies so I may have liked the play. 🙂
You probably would have! The story line was interesting. What do you do with a Zombie when it’s your dad? Do you call “811”, the zombie hotline? 🙂
Not that’s a tough one! 🙂
Great story! You and your husband are too fun! I’ve never known a zombie or cared about them before, but after meeting Christopher De Voss this year, I have become interested and am planning to watch my first Zombie movie this weekend. 😉
I cannot wait for a review! 🙂 Christopher De Voss is a hoot. (which is a compliment, btw!)
I am glad I am not alone..I don’t get it? What is the fascination with zombies?
And zombies came to visit us last night! Haunting! 🙂 I guess it’s just a thing. A very long lasting one at that! 🙂
I am sure our parents thought the same of the things we enjoyed…I know they never got Rock and Roll or the Beatles. 🙂
