Every year, although I reassure him it’s not necessary, Hub insists on taking me out to dinner for my birthday.
After several weeks of holiday parties and over-indulging and way too many nights away from my comfy perch.
This year, in lieu of dining out, he bought tickets to Ladies’ Comedy Night at Miner’s Alley, a teeny tiny theater in Golden, Colorado. I wasn’t sure he realized that meant THE CROWD would be ladies, not just the comedians. Sure enough, when we walked into the theater, the cacophony of voices was decidedly high-pitched. We spotted three vacant seats in the middle row (there are only five rows) and sat down.
To the left of us – a group of women complaining about work. Behind us – three women yakking about their kids. In front of us – two women loudly discussing their post-divorce status and luck (or lack thereof) on the local dating scene.
“You ok?” I asked Hub.
“Sure”, he smiled gamely, his eyes searching the crowd for signs of testosterone.
I thought to myself, “at least he’s got an empty seat beside him to buffer him a little.”
Just before the show began, an attractive 30-ish blonde, holding a cocktail, excused herself across several seated patrons and slid into the seat next to Hub. Looking at both of us, she smiled brightly and said, “Hi, I’m Casey. I have a Perky Nipple. Would you like one?”
Hub turned to me, arched his eyebrow, and we burst out laughing.
“Sure,” I piped up. “Give the man a Perky Nipple. Lord knows it’s been awhile … “
Should I be worried that Hub bought himself a season ticket to Ladies’ Comedy Night?

Hi Sammy, just wanted to let you know I nominated you for a Liebster award 😉 Check out my blog, laineyrain.wordpress.com if you want to take part x
p.s. I’m suddenly aware this looks like spam, it’s not, lol!!
Lainey – you never look like spam 😉 Thanks for the award nomination; you are so sweet. I already got nominated by another blogger last week and haven’t had time to do the work on it yet. But that means I have to turn yours down. I’m going to visit your site this weekend because I want to see your questions 🙂 Congratulations on getting the nomination yourself!!
Ah, you’re so sweet. Glad I don’t look like spam! Looking forward to checking out your nominees, we both have such good taste! x
Love your post excuse my ignorance but did it come with a swizzle stick ?
You know, I can’t remember LOL I was so dazzled by Casey and her question and laughing and I forgot to look at the drink !! Do you know what a swizzle stick is?
sure do, I may even have a couple somewhere, you know for when I’m entertaining (the Queen & her lot they are always hanging round my place) they add that extra something to her pint of creme de menthe, goodness that woman can drink 🙂
So the Queen’s a nipper, eh? My niece recently moved to London and has a very funny blog where she recently posted about seeing the Queen while niece’s parents were visiting. Too bad you couldn’t join them. She posts on Quora; you need to register, etc. to read; if interested, let me know and I’ll email you with more info (or I’ll try to email you that post).
