I recently received two free tickets for the Opera. A friend who’s going out of town gave them to me and just asked me to make sure they would get used. The tickets are for Hansel & Gretel written by Engelbert Humperdinck. The first time they told me this they quickly went on to say,"No, not THAT Humperdinck!" I, of course, said," Wow! THAT really would have been an interesting opera if he had." They just sighed and laughed.
My Friend: “Let me put it to you this way… There’s near death which equals the ballet. Then, there’s death, AND then there’s opera!”
Me: “So are up for an afterlife experience?”
MF: “Yeah, very funny! You should take that stand up comedy on the road.”
Me: “Oh come on… I’ll even take you out for a good stiff drink afterwards. That’ll bring you back to life!”
MF: “No, really. I think I’ll pass.”
The ever so strange thing is that I had a near run in with a deer coming down a newly snowed canyon picking up these tickets from my friend's place. Hmmm... So thus it looks like I’m going to be doing a solo afterlife experience on Saturday. Figures! The afterlife may be calling me... Now I just have to wait for the fat lady to sing and pray that I’m reincarnated!
