You know, it’s been a long time since I had a truly late night.  Mostly that happens when I have to travel.  Have to be there at a certain time, need to get back so I arrive late at night and slog home, happy to flop into bed exhausted.  Then the next day is a complete waste as far as productivity because I’m jet lagged/travel hung over and just need to sit still or nap or do laundry etc.  I might do more than microwave something to eat, but it’s a toss-up.  There’s a fast food joint just down the street from me and at those times I can hear the fries calling to me.

But a friend of mine emailed and said they had tickets to David Sedaris, did I want to come, their wife can’t make it.  Heck yeah!  Did we want to eat first?  Of course! Did we want a glass of over priced pretentious alcohol at the show?  Why not.  Well, we met for food, sat down, and started talking. It had been a while since we had a good talk so we started sharing stories and had ourselves rolling by the time we had to run for the show down the street.  Got there just as the house lights went down so we didn’t miss a word that Mr. Sedaris said.  And if you get the chance to see him live, DO IT!  He’s one of the funniest people alive without being foul and most of it is just common sense and things we have thought ourselves at times.  We and the rest of the audience laughed out loud the entire time he was speaking.

Then my friend asked if I wanted a night-cap and I said sure so we went to a pub and each nursed a beverage while we talked and laughed and talked some more.  Finally we were both worn out and we said good-bye.  My face hurt from all the talking and the laughing but I felt light and well.  And this morning I woke up feeling groggy, having to drag myself into work, where I was asked, “Rough night?”   LOL.  Yup.
