Warding off Alzheimer’s one square at a time

Saturday night I took the kids, Tay, Rea, and W., to see a performance by the BBQ Kittens, an improv group that performs shows similar to “Whose Line is it Anyway.”

On the way there we met Chris to switch cars. During the Chinese Fire Drill Chris dropped his OUR cell phone. He arrived home, called and confirmed that it wasn’t in the car and decided the best plan of action was not “go and look for phone” but “sit and watch TV.” Ugh. Men.

We enjoyed the BBQ Kittens show tremendously and decided to stay for the second performance. During the break between shows I started doing a Sudoku puzzle and, determined and addicted, I continued to do it between skits. Big mistake.

I got HECKLED by a cast member during the show!

So embarrassing.

In one scene a performer mentioned that something was “As bad as the girl in the front row doing a sudoku puzzle during a BBQ Kittens show.”

Nevertheless, we had a great time and the next morning my husband decided the time was right to go look for the phone. And he found it.

In four run over pieces.

    That sounds so fun (the BBQ Kittens part, not the neglectful husband letting phone get destroyed part). I want to go next time. It’s too bad you couldn’t retort that you were only working when they weren’t performing, and you went to see them TWICE!

    That’s hilarious. Dude, don’t mess with Sodoku…in 50 years, while you’re mentally agile, they’ll be fumbling around town talking to streetlamps.

    Very similar behavior to reading while someone else is driving you somewhere (though I do this to my husband).

    Ah, MP, I ascertain that both are acceptable… especially since I read pertinent parts of the magazine article in suitably entertaining voices….
