|Stacy's daughter is Lexi and Glennda's daugher is Ally....both girls remembered the great |
Aunt Rita Adventure we had last summer
|When I picked them up -- they had NO IDEA where we were going.|
|BUT I NEEDN'T HAVE WORRIED! Turns out -- it was four guys doing a parody. For example -- they did all of Shakespeare's comedies as a "rap number". And they did Hamlet as SUPERHEROS!!|
|OMG!! I truly don't think I've ever laughed so hard in my life. This theater group is called the "Prenzie Players" and they've been around for ten years. This was the first time I attended one of their shows.|
|After the show -- we went to Ross's 24-hour diner for our Magic Mountain. It had been such a special night -- I wanted them to have a souvenir -- and a tye-died t-shirt seemed like just the right thing for this raucous Aunt Rita Adventure.|
Big dreams. Change-the-world-idealism. Judgment. Wow. For me, most of that remembers like a bad case of the measles...I vaguely remember it -- but I got over it.
I distinctly remember saying to my Dad, "all you care about is money". It was 1966. I was 18 and completely believed that I knew everything. He just laughed at me. I was furious.
This is all reminding me of one of my favorite quotes. "Old age and deceit will outsmart young and enthusiasm every single time."
Of course, I only started to like that quote after I hit the age of over-40. I don't have it quite right. But it's close.
