Yesterday was my wife’s birthday so I took her out to dinner at the Melting Pot. Except for the part where I gestured wildly about chocolate fondu and accidentally knocked my pinot noir all over my lap, it was a great time. Good think I elected to wear black, right? I should probably just always wear black when I’m around chocolate or wine because I tend to get very excited about them, and one or both is bound to wind up as an accidental accessory.

I went to see a community theater performance of The Last Five Years over the weekend. The show was great, and I was especially impressed with the guitar…Probably because I’m married to the guitar player, but also because of the mad strumming skills.

I figured the theater on Saturday night is a good occasion for (faux) fur, but a community theater is a good occasion for jeans, too. Combine the two and you’re good to go. All my jeans were dirty…so I wore these jeans that I hardly ever wear because the rise is so low it makes me feel uncomfortable and nervous that I’m going to flash the back and front of my underwear. You wanna know how little I wear these jeans? When I put them on, I realized there was a movie ticket in the pocket from the last time I wore them. It was dated August 26.

Of 2011.

Don’t worry, I’m doing laundry as we speak.
