Nicole is back in town from Zimbabwe and inhabited our guest room for a couple of nights this weekend. It was SO good to see her and get caught up (not much to catch up on our end, plenty to tell on hers) and we even fit in a musical: an adaptation of "A Christmas Story" was playing at the 5th Avenue Theatre so we put our age to good use and got $20 tickets (a special for theater-goers aged 25 and under). It's like the movie was meant to be turned into a musical. I loved every minute of it. My favorite scene was the musical number after the leg lamp was placed in the living room - all the adults came out and danced around with their own leg lamp, and then out came all the children with miniature leg lamps! Hilarious.
