While we were in Las Vegas, we saw the Blue Man Group. It was astounding. They were funny, talented, and we left the theater completely entertained and having thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
Last night, shortly after we arrived home, I went to see a community theater production of Aida with Amy and her roommate…and it was really quite terrible. You know you’re doing something wrong when the highlight of the performance was running into Kyle’s aunt and uncle at intermission. It’s not that I dislike them, quite the opposite actually, but when a five minute conversation is head and shoulders more entertaining that the entire production was, you know you’ve missed the mark.
What is even more pitiful, however, is that the second most entertaining thing I did was fan my sister with the program through the entire show because she had a pretty terrible headache and it was hot. You’ve really failed when fanning somebody for two hours is more entertaining.
Amy, her roommate and I have vowed to see a BYU production this semester to make up for suck a lackluster performance. I’m quite looking forward to it, if only to wash the bad taste that was Aida out of my mouth.
