Besides getting me a new air conditioner for our anniversary, Jonathan also took me on a date…and not one that involved getting Chinese takeout and watching a movie on the couch [which, by the way, is my favorite kind of date]. We actually got dressed up and went downtown, which can be a lot of work for a lazy couple living in the burbs, but it wasn’t that bad. Jonathan found a show that involved ropes and masks and spandex. It’s not what you’re thinking. We went to a production of “The Red Shoes” performed by Austin’s very own aerial arts school, Sky Candy. I know, pretty cool, right?
Here’s how awesome we looked heading downtown. Jonathan’s so hot, he’s actually glowing.
If you can see past the dirty window, you’ll note that I’m wearing hot pink lipstick. That’s how dressy this date got. And I had to purse my lips because lipstick that bright makes you do such things.
I wiped it off about two minutes into the drive. I felt like a clown.
I did keep my red shoes on, though. These are my favorite pair.
Here we are standing in line…
I really need a haircut.
Here’s the show poster…
The show was impressive. These people were super duper strong, and I was nervous for them the whole time. The few pictures I did get were blurry because we weren’t allowed to use flash. I don’t know why, something about endangering the lives of the performers…blah…blah.
Seriously, though, I was so worried that my flash would go off, and I couldn’t take the pressure, so I quit taking pictures.
After the show, I decided, as any normal, noncompetitive person would, that we should go do pull-ups and climb light poles. Jonathan left me on the street corner and went and had coffee instead.
Okay, he took me with him. We had a delicious piece of carrot cake and watched people.
We also took a bunch of silly pictures all of which exhibit my crazy-eyed look, so I won’t scare you with them. Well, maybe just one…
We considered going dancing, but my favorite shoes were not being nice to me. [At least they looked pretty, and that’s all that matters] Instead, posed for a few pictures and quickly got in our car before we got mugged.
Then we got home and enjoyed our nicely air conditioned house
