I was invited to the Detroit Opera House for this Friday's performance of "Madame Butterfly".
Formal, black and white, and box seats.
Unfortunately, I can't go.
I'm missing my moment to recreate the scene from "Pretty Woman".
Doris (stuffy old opera going lady) to Vivian, (Julia Roberts):
Did you enjoy the opera dear?
Vivian: Oh, it was so good, I almost pee'd my pants.
Doris: (shocked look) What?
Edward (Richard Gere): She said she like it better than "Pirates of Penzance".
You know I totally would have said that and then watched as my host fumbled to recall Edward's saving lines.
FYI, the opera that was playing in the movie?
An Italian opera about a prostitute that falls in love with a wealthy man.
Come to think of it ...
"Wicked" ... would probably be more my style.
