Scene: Uptown - about 5 pm-ish
Local art center co-owner (to us): "You should come by at 6. We have a performance artist doing an interpretation on the burning of Joan of Arc."
Spouse: "um............... what time?"
Local art center co-owner: "6 pm - you'll come, right?"
(Local art center co-owner then dashes into nearby intersection to attempt to recruit unfortunates who have worked at their title companies too late and the homeless)
Me: "I'd rather hurl myself into traffic."
Scene: Home - 6:15 pm. Cocktail Hour is in full swing
Smartphone rings: "Film Noir Tone"
Me: (Checks phone)
Spouse: "Stopped in for a minute... It was fucking stupid."
Me: "Of course it was, you spaz."
Me: "I didn't see it , did I? Loser"
Marriage is wonderful. Support marriage equality.
Performance art is generally very bad. Do not support performance art.
