And I am no fool, obviously.
Last night I changed my plan upon leaving work around 5:30pm. Earlier in the day I read the plot of the play which I was supposed to see last night and it didn’t tickle my fancy. Here is what I read
Ethel is a glimpse into the magnificent and very complicated life of legendary stage and film star Ethel Waters. A versatile actress who epitomized the glamour of Black Vaudeville while successfully and lucratively crossing over into traditionally white performance venues, Waters inspired directors and singers and song writers with her talent and versatility. Waters was the first to record “Stormy Weather,” later starring in the remarkable Cabin in the Sky. Atlanta’s own Terry Burrell brings this amazing performer to life in a one woman play with music, band, and the larger-than-life wit of Ethel Waters.
I’m not saying that this play would never appeal to me, but it certainly didn’t last night.
Instead I did what I do best, I went to a bar.
As fortune would have it I ran into my boss as we were both walking to our cars and convinced him to join me for a trip over to Brass Tap Beer Bar, which has quickly become my bar of choice for waiting out traffic.
I’ve already failed my first two tests for today, I forgot to weigh myself this morning, and I did not get out of the house early.
My failure on the second account caused me grief by having to fight, not literally, people at QT in order to fill the M6 with gas this morning.
I need to leave the office at a reasonable time tonight because I am headed to Horizon Theatre for the opening night of “Sex with Strangers”.
If I can manage to get to an Apple Store today I plan to buy a new iPhone, the iPhone 5se. No fooling.
Given that it’s April Fools Day I thought about going back on my promise and inserting text describing a photo that would never appear, but that would be cruel and I would have had to explain my action.
This weekend I will remain at home. I need to do a shitload of yard work, as the rain and warmer weather have triggered growth.
I may try to get a bike ride in on one of the two days, though depending on the temperatures predicted I may put the bike back onto the trainer.
This weekend I will also try to force myself to cook dinner at home, consuming things that are already in my pantry. Check back on Monday to see how successful I was, or was not as the case may be.
