A Night At The Theatre, "tick, tick Boom"

I've been in love with tick tick Boom's music for as long as I can remember. The songs "See Her Smile" and "Why" and "Louder Than Words" are on the Top Played on my iPod. The music is absolutely outstanding.

Triad Stage did a wonderful production several years ago that Sam and I attended. When I heard Threate Alliance was going to do it, I was going to pass on seeing it. That is until I heard David Joy was going to be playing Jon.

Ken loves to tease me about my crush on David and he even gave me his comp ticket to see the show. He also reserved a seat which would offer prime David Joy viewing. I knew I'd be in for a very enjoyable night of Davi theatre.

Crush aside, David was absolutely fantastic as Jon. David has a great rock-n-roll voice so "No More" was especially kickin'. He can tear your heart out with his ballads and "See Her Smile" brought tears to my eyes. If ever there was a role David was born to play, this was that role.

Kaylee Gonzalez played Susan and other various characters. While she wasn't new to Theatre Alliance, I'd not seen her before. She certainly held her own with David. James Crowe played Michael and other various characters.

Overall, it was a great show. I was so thrilled about the production that I didn't even realize my boss was also in the audience. I didn't find out until this morning's training meeting. She also has a crush on David so we spend the first 15 minutes talking about him and the show.

A Son Day on Saturday

Merger related training, etc. have been keeping me incredibly busy. As such, I've been working long hours and haven't seen much of Cade so far this summer. This morning I asked if he wanted to go to breakfast. I was pleasantly surprised that he agreed.

We went to our usual haunt for pancakes and eggs. We had nice conversation, both bringing each other up to speed on what's going on in our lives. Cade and I have always had great conversations, and I relished every moment during breakfast.

After our meal I figured he'd want to go home so he could return to his PS4 games, so I tentatively asked him if there was anything else he wanted to do. I was somewhat shocked when he asked if we could see the Minions movie. Maybe he was missing me as much as I had been missing him? I immediately jumped on Fandango to see the movie times and the movie was starting within 45 minutes.

We headed over to the Wynsong. Since we'd just had breakfast we didn't get any popcorn. We got into the theatre, which was pretty crowded. We were able to get seats on the aisle.

Honestly, I don't remember much about the movie's plot. It had some silly moments and it tied in very nicely with Despicable Me. For me, it wasn't about the movie. I was enjoying Cade's laughter and I was almost brought to tears simply watching him watch the movie.
