My wonderful, thoughtful bro decided to buy me tickets to the Steve Martin bluegrass tour for my birthday. When we were kids, one of our favorite things was to sneak a listen to some of Steve Martin's terribly inappropriate humor from the other room while our dad sat unsuspecting.
I was so surprised and delighted when I opened my birthday card and saw the tickets. I love comedy and I love bluegrass music, so it was PERFECT!
Hubs was finally off (worked 13 out of the last 15 days) so we were actually able to go together! It was pouring down rain and we had to take the public train to get downtown. My bro happens to work the district where the concert was being held, so he told us he'd be waiting in his patrol car when we hopped off the train and he'd take us the few blocks over to the concert venue.
Sure enough, we got off at our stop and bro was there waiting like the gentleman he is. I jumped in the front seat and hubs jumped in the back. We got to the venue with a huge line of people out front waiting to get in.
Hubs is always one to put on a show. I got out and then had to let him out because this was, after all, a cage car. I let hubs out and as people watched curiously, the hubs leaned into the back door and said in a very loud, stern voice, "NOW KISS MY ASS", and slammed the door. Of course my bro was laughing so hard he could not drive off.
The security guards sort of reached for their pepper spray but as the hubs turned around laughing, they just sort of looked at him confused. Hubs said, "That's my brother in law".
The guards breathed a huge sigh of relief and started chuckling. One of them said, "Oh thank GOD".
Hubs makes me have fun wherever we go.
The music was great, the comedy made it even better.. and just having a night out with hubs was so much fun. We walked around downtown holding hands afterward and when we came to a huge rain puddle, he threw me over his shoulder and carried me over it. All the people on the street were saying, "Awwwww".
He made me laugh and he made me very proud. I love those days.
