We got dressed up and went out to eat at a nice restaurant in town called Ella. We had an awesome meal and some drinks but held off on dessert since we were stuffed.
After that we went to a play at a community theater titled "5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche."
The premise of the play is about a womens' group of widows during the 50's who meet, and the audience is sort of treated like the members of the group. So we all got name tags as we arrived...I was Alma and Michael was Bessie. :)
It comes out that all of the women in this group are in fact lesbians, and their annual celebration rating and eating quiches is quite the euphemism. It was so fun and enjoyable, including times where they encouraged we, the other members of the social club, to loudly exclaim that we too were lesbians. Some of the older men were a little hesitant, but most of us loudly went along with it and it was really great.
After the play, we went out for dessert, then came home to relieve the babysitter. She said that it had been a good night and there were a couple of drawings for us the June had made.
The next morning, Bennett was happy to see us again and got right down to one of his favorite new activities...putting on other peoples' shoes. In this case, the booties I had worn out the night before.
Happy anniversary, baby. I love you so much!
