Overheard at Avenue Q

Spouse and I attended Avenue Q recently. Great show. And even the intermission was entertaining... especially since we were eavesdropping on the conversation of the folks a row ahead of us.

1st Woman: "What's the street called on Sesame Street?"
2nd Woman: "Sesame Street."
1st Woman: "Yeah, but what's the street called."
2nd Woman: "Sesame Street."

(The Bad Idea Bears told me to blog this. YAY!)

That's almost as good as what I heard at the pool the other day:

Lifeguard: Your son is cute, how old is he?

Father: Oh, he's 22 months.

Lifguard: I don't know how old that is.

Father (obviously perplexed): Almost two.

I hope I don't drown here.

I just went last night and, well, thought of your folks as I watched four retired couples make their way out of the theatre after "The Internet is for Porn". How'd they do? Or did you take the tickets?

I also enjoyed the merch guys screaming as we were walking out "If he doesn't buy you something then he doesn't love you"

Stephan and I went and we met my folks there. He asked at intermission "So, is it odd sitting next to your mom for this?"

Um, no.

My parents went, and loved it. They said lots of people walked out, though.

Good for the retired folks to leave then, getting out before "You can be as loud as the hell you want" (hee hee!)

I saw it on Broadway with my parents. We all loved it, but I have to say the hard-core full-frontal puppet sex made me squirm just a little, sitting next to my mother. Still, I laughed so hard I cried and my stomach hurt. "A little to the, MY left."

As I once mentioned, I saw a shorter version of this during its in-house run at the Wynn Las Vegas. In the longer version you saw, did they ever explain what you do with a B.A. in English?

P.S. New quiz posted.

You get a job at Barnes and Noble, right?

Now if I can just figure out what to do with a Master's in Music.
