Last evening I went to see Calendar Girls at the Pavilion Theatre with some my dance group, we had planned it some time ago and we were looking forward to it, First we were going to Harry Ramsdens for Fish n Chip supper at 5.30.,. It was going to be a long day so I took the dogs out at 3.15, home by 4 pm, got the beauty treatment kit out and let it work it’s magic, tweaked up the hair, fed the dogs and left home at 4.30, I had to be at Mary’s 4.45, I had arranged for a friend to let the dogs out around 7 pm, All went according to plan, and off we went for a good evening. We had a nice meal of fish n chips followed by bread and butter pudding with custard followed by tea, lovely… got to our seats 5th row back,
I hadn’t been there before and was a bit concerned to see the seats were on a flat plane, not tiered, oh, oh, doesn’t look good. as I’m only 5 feet tall, or short, whichever way you look at it, and wondered who should be sitting in front,
OH——— NO, the female equivalent of a Sumo wrestler sat in front of little me with a slightly smaller version next to her. I do not exaggerate when I say she blocked out half the stage, , not only was she big and wide, she had fluffed out hair with bits sticking out at the sides,
The show was completely spoiled for me, no matter which way I moved she always seemed to move in the same direction, and I had to think of the person behind, At the interval, I apologised to her, but she waved it aside and said she could see the problem.
A couple of times I just shut my eyes and listened to the dialogue.
Not a very happy bunny last night, but to-day I could see the funny side, and let’s face it, Sumo girl has to live with that weight, I don’t.
Thank you for visiting and please come back, Arlene, Tango and Ruby
