Schwoo…I made it to my most favorite museum in the world. The Metropolitan. Two hours later.
Last year when we came, I didn’t get the pleasure of coming by myself. Sweetman rushes me through things he doesn’t like to do, but takes forever to shop, inspecting seams, button holes, zippers, pockets and God knows what else. Oooo, I think I married my mother. Now that’s scary. My mother in my husband’s body. Creepy-deepy. Ooky-spooky.
Okay. Enough blabber…
When I walked into the crowded mouth of the museum, I had to let security go through my purse. Question. How come it is security checks are done inside buildings, not six feet away? Outside? Really? Welcome to America. Right? The land of no common sense.
Okay. I know. I’m yakking again.
After, security checked my bag, I went to the get-your-ticket-area. A nice red-curly-headed girl asked, “Is it okay to pay twenty-dollars?”
I loved this question. OMG. The spirit of Robb Logger moved on me, again(anyone know what happened to him…is he at unreachable celebrity status now…did Gertrude murder him?). Special thoughts were forming in my mind. The temptation to take her picture gnawed at me.
Is it okay to pay twenty-dollars, I thought. Hmm. What would Robb Logger do? He’d take her picture to post on his web before giving her an answer. After, he’d probably ask why or tell her it wasn’t okay because he’s homeless or he didn’t speak-a-da Eng-a-lish. Take another picture and off he’d go..
But, I ignored his spirit, paid the twenty-dollars, and in I went.
OMG. “I’m in heaven. I’m in heaven,” I sang to myself once I stepped foot into the first exhibition.
Next stop: The Byzantine Era.
Religious nuts, you know. They existed back then, too.
These are a few of my favorite exhibits. There’s so much more, but I’m running out of time this morning. Besides, I’ve got a show to catch at two-thirty. Wicked. Well, not in real time. Instead, I’ve got an appointment with my massage therapist.
That’s all for now folks!!!
Have a great day blogging, reading, and writing!!!
