My Papa's Birthday was yesterday & I wanted to write a little something about the date I took him on. My Dad & I have been trying to go see Jersey Boys since my 16th birthday... I am now 25.
This year I wanted to do something special for him instead of my normal Star Trek book as a gift. My grandmother told me about this thing called Broadway week. I'll admit it one of the biggest reasons Papa & I didn't go see Jersey Boys sooner is because tickets are so expensive. Last time I looked I saw tickets for $250 apiece & as much as I love my old man I can't afford that. Broadway week is a time where you can get tickets for certain shows at buy one get one free.
Finding out about this chance gave me an idea, instead of buying him a book I would take him to go see a show. I can't describe how happy I was to find out that Jersey Boys was part of the deal. With no hesitation I ordered two tickets for my papa's birthday. I couldn't wait to get dressed up & hit the town with my old man.
I'll admit it I wasn't able to get the best tickets but sitting next to my dad was the best seat in the house. Yes the tickets might have been a gift for him but I think I got more out of that afternoon then he did. I enjoyed watching Jersey boys & spending a Saturday with my old man. Sometimes I forget that I am growing up & I should spend as much time with him as I can.
Stay Kinky, Stay Curly, Stay You.
