Saturday night I went and watched a friend perform in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. I'd never watched the musical before, and though I did enjoy it, it didn't begin to live up to my expectations, which were based on watching Oklahoma! two summers ago. Perhaps it was because I didn't know the songs and couldn't sing along. After all, when I watched Mama Mia this summer, my sisters all complained about how I sang during the entire production (so sue me!), and I loved that show!
At any rate, I attended the show by myself, and I can't believe how much I enjoyed being my own date! I almost didn't go, because every single person I asked to go with me already had plans, or had something come up, but I remembered that I'm independent and CAN stand on my own two feet, so I sucked it up, dressed like a super model (of course!) and hit the road.
So... Joseph and I don't have a lot in common, but we have this: this weekend I saw a new play, an old friend (though he disappeared before we got to visit- what happened to you, B?), and renewed a relationship that I don't want to ever take for granted- the relationship I have with me!
