Is there even such a thing as “too much fun?” I don’t think so, but if there is then I just officially had too much fun tonight!
I got home in time to write this blog post before midnight about my awesome night watching live stand-up comedy at the Tacoma Comedy Club with Gary Gulman. He is seriously funny and I enjoyed his jokes so much. I’ve seen his Netflix comedy specials, but let me tell you, he is even better in person! I admit, I sort of geeked-out when I saw him walking through the club before it started. Scream or squeal, it’s a toss-up on what you would call the sound that I made when I jumped from my chair to shake his hand and get a picture with this tall Amazon of a man. He was super nice and didn’t have me escorted out for being a weirdo fan. (Thanks Gary!)
My friend, Michelle, joined me for a ladies night out for some laughs. It was great! I think this is something that should be a regular event. Comedy is so good for the mind, body, soul and these Comics tonight nailed it! I haven’t laughed that hard in a while.
I WISH that I could remember a joke to retell to you, but that just isn’t my strong suit so you’ll have to take my word for it that they were funny as hell! (You can still go see them tomorrow if you are around Tacoma, WA)
Thank you to my friend Michelle for a fabulous night. She drove and I got to have a drink(or two or three) and we had a yummy dinner at 208 Garfield in Parkland where we talked and laughed before heading to our show to see THE Gary Gulman, at his finest I might add. Two great Comics were before him, but I didn’t catch their names unfortunately and I never saw them listed anywhere. They were funny!
All-in-all, a really great night! Can’t wait to do it again.
My fourth favorite moment of 2015 would have to be the night out with my daughter, Faith, when we went to Tacoma Musical Playhouse (TMP) to see “25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” in February.
We were given comps from my good friend, Demmarie. It was a very funny play! TMP is my favorite local musical theatre, not just because my son, Hershal, was in a play there (Ragtime), but because they put on the best shows. But that is also how I met so many wonderful people that I call friends today.
After the play, Faith and I stopped at Applebee’s for a bite to eat at 11:30pm. First, the young hostess asked if we wanted to sit in the bar?! I said “No, thank you. My daughter is only 15.” This made Faith laugh quite hard, but I know if I had gone with it she would have blown our cover, because just like her mama, she can’t lie!
While there, enjoying our girl time over a plate of nachos, some cute 17 year old boy comes over to our table and tells her “his friend” thinks she’s pretty. She says “Oookay.” and he heads back to his table. I can see the group of guys, but Faith’s back is to them so I’m giving her a play by play of the events back at their table. To up the ante, I ask our waiter to send a dessert to them courtesy of the pretty girl. The waiter is such a sport and gives them the free birthday brownie dessert to which they all get excited about and dig in. During this time Faith and I can’t stop laughing! It’s hilarious to her that Mom is playing her wing-man and the waiter is in cahoots!
When the guys get up to leave, two come over to our table to give Faith their instagram account names and introduce themselves. But the best part was watching them high-five each other on their way to their car.
It was a pretty funny night and I haven’t laughed that hard in a while!
Merry Christmas to you and Happy New Year! ~Tillie
