The Met and Los Mets

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

Tenderly kissed


And the long, tired ride home
