What a triumph, Saturday! What a long, adventure-filled, iPhone camera-captured time. Behold:
Part I: The Met
My uncle invited me to see Le Comte Ory at the Met. It's a gorgeous, funny opera with men in drag, a woman singing a castrato part and glorious costumes. I was in heaven.
I had fished this cocktail dress out of my closet and hey! It still fits! Excellent.
Then it was off to the Met for the afternoon's festivities. Lincoln Center is a gorgeous area of the city and the sunshine made it even more magical as it bounced off expensive dentures and crystal chandeliers.
My cousin Michael, who I hadn't seen in probably 10 years, came with my aunt and uncle. We hit it off and had a great time with the dancing men in drag and watching the sets move in between songs. Did you know there's a threesome on stage?
Then I changed gears in every sort of direction.
Part II: Los Mets
My boyfriend's future sort of brother-in-law got tickets to see the Mets play at Citi Field. I sprinted to Queens! (Not really.)
'Twas cold and we wore free hats
Took prom photos
Standing spooned with dudes
And the long, tired ride home
