Have you ever had one of those nights that you know you aren't going to ever forget? I had one of those on the 25th of October with Kitani. Dusty surprised me with tickets to go see the play 'Menopause the Musical' with Kitani. We were excited to have a adult girl's night while the boys watched the kids. We headed up to Salt Lake and headed over to the Gateway for some dinner before the play. We decided on Ztejas (which we refer to as Zendejas, in honor of our friend Karly) as we both wanted to try something new.
When we walked into the restaraunt the guy at the host desk said "I don't work here." Kitani and I must have looked quite confused because then he went into well he works for the company but not at that specific location, but that he was from corporate. Someone that actually "worked" there came and saved us and showed us to our table. After dinner we had a little time to kill so we decided to walk around the shops. We went to Anthropologie and the Z gallerie, where I found an amazing glitter skeleton for $9 because all of their Halloween was marked down 70%. I love it when that happens. Anyway, we are just taking our time talking about everything that we want and that we could probably make most of the things in the stores because we are so crafty and experienced (yeah not so much). Kitani then realizes that we have exactly 17 minutes to be to the play. So we head back to the car. The only problem with that statement, is that we could not find the car. (Sidenote: n a normal occasion this never would have happened to us. We are both always looking around us when we park and making sure that we knew which level we are on) We went down the stair and down the escalators and back up. I knew that the level we had parked on was an orange/red color but that was pretty much it, and the majority are that color. So we continue to search, at this point we are laughing and can't believe that this is happening to us. We don't think we are going to make it to the play, so we are just laughing and still looking for the car. AHHHH, success! The car has been found. We hurry throw our bags in and head out. We pull up google maps for directions and head out. I love google maps, but not so much this time. I am driving and going the wrong way, but eventually get back on track. I am speeding and cutting people off, but I don't care, I have 5 minutes until the play starts and the whole time Kitani and I continue to laugh. We find the theater and there is parking right across the street. We pull in and go to the kiosk to pay. The people in front of us couldn't quite figure it out and I am about ready to elbow my way in. But I wait. Finally we pay and I run back to put the ticket on the car. We then run across the street and into the building. At this point, I am delusional and getting out of breath from the running and laughing. I see an old man who looks offical in a uniform and frantically ask where will call is. I am surprised I didn't give him a heart attack with how frantic I have become. He points me down the hall and Kitani and I take off running again. She is laughing and has to stop occasionaly because after a baby there is no doing anything while laughing. This makes me laugh harder. I find the hall but there is only a door with letters on the other side and no handle and I dont think that I can get it. Kitani is laughing at me because that is the door I go through. We get our tickets and run to our seats. Well we run to the wrong section and a nice lady informs us to head up the stairs because we are on the front row of the balacony. So we run up the flight of stairs and find our seats. We are 5 minutes late but they still let us in. We sit down and are still laughing because we can't believe it happened to us. The play didn't start for another 5 minutes (they must have known that Utah runs on Mormon Standard Time). The play was hilarious, having gone through medical menopause myself, I completely related. It is a must see! Kitani and I then enjoyed a nice ride home where laughing continued. It was a night that I am sure we won't forget.
Kitani and I before the play started. Please excuse this picture, we were a little out of breath and shiny after all of the excitement
Sorry if this post rambled and it didn't make any sense. It was all clear in my mind, but that does not mean that it will make sense to anyone else.
As a side note: anyone seen A league of their own? Well the not so cute one that has to be made over, she was one of the 4 ladies in the play. I thought it was kind of funny!
