Well... today was supposed to be the end of the world. Somehow I didn't think that was going to actually happen, so we decided to travel down to Davenport and see one of our favorite comedians, Brian Regan, on this very important evening. Last time we saw him in Ames, last September, Eden fell asleep so we didn't purchase a ticket for her this time! It was a nice outing with just Ed, Ollie and me.
We stopped to eat at Happy Joe's Pizza so that Oliver could play some of the games before the concert. We ordered the pizza and it was DISGUSTING. I don't think I even finished an entire tiny sliver of my pizza. Food... done... let the gaming begin! So... I gave him $5 worth of tokens and told him to have fun. After winning many tickets, of course he heads over to the toy counter and opts for a couple dum dum suckers, some pop rocks and about 5 tootsie rolls. I resisted the urge to let him know that for $5 I could have gotten him 5 entire bags of candy at the Dollar Tree. I guess the price of fun and excitement was figured into it as well. :O)
Off we went to the Adler Theatre in downtown Davenport. Ed dropped Oliver and I off to sit in a courtyard across the street so we wouldn't have to walk through the parking garage. Oliver's walking has been getting worse and I'm in constant pain so it worked well for us to sit on a bench and wait for Ed to come and find us. I smelled lilacs in the air, one of my favorite springtime smells. As we walked by the large bushes, I had to stick my nose in the petals. Simple pleasures...
We found our seat which was fairly close to the front, closer to the front than the last time we had seen him. He didn't call himself 'Frosty Locks' this time! There were lots of jokes that he told the last time, but more newer ones than I thought there would be. I was crying from laughter at many different parts of the night! One was about a 2 inch hair growing out of the middle of his forehead. Oh... man... it's a killer I tell ya!!!
We had so much fun and I'm glad that we've started to take time and plan for special little getaways and things like this. Memory making is priority #1 right now. Hmmmm... now what will we do next?? :O)
