I began rehearsals today for the great American musical about Jews in Russia. If you aren't humming it already, take a look at my title again.
We spent 3 hours of rehearsal today doing the staging for that song... and I have spent the rest of the day humming it.
The Big Guy and I have a bit of history with this show. When we first started "dating" I worked at a camp. There wasn't much actual "dating" - seeing as how I had to be on camp 24 hours a day for 6 days a week. But in the several weeks after camp and before I had to report back to college The Big Guy planned a surprise date for me. Remember how I ruined his surprise proposal? Well, my ruining of his surprises has an even longer history.
He was VERY excited about it, and kept talking about it and dropping hints. I don't remember what any of the hints were, other than that we were going into the city. Frankly, I didn't worry about it. I like surprises.
Well, one day I was flipping through the newspaper, probably looking for the comics and crossword puzzle, when I saw the ad. For this musical. At the big touring theatre in Detroit. For the weekend of our surprise date. And I knew.
So the next time we spoke on the phone The Big Guy started teasing me with the "surprise." I told him I know what it was.
After a brief silence he retorted "Well, you still don't know where I'm taking you to dinner!"
Don't forget Monday's Mission to do a post in the style of a Holiday List. That's pretty vague, I know, but I did it on purpose to give you lots of room for creativity. Gift list? to do list? list of parties to attend? Have at it!
