When everyone walks out of the theater smiling and humming (and some of us were even dancing a little), you know youíve seen a good show. I had heard that ďThe Full MontyĒ was a lot of fun to see on stage, but I didnít know Iíd enjoy it so much.

Part of it is the talented company of Summer Repertory Theatre players, who always put forth a professional effort. And part of it is the show itself. Iím always grateful to see a musical comedy with songs that make me want to sing along (and a few that make me laugh).

Titillated? No, I was not titillated. But I was highly amused by those in the audience who were titillated. They might have had an even better time than I did, and thatís saying something.

Iím glad I went, but I have to say that I was in no mood for fun most of the day. It was one of those days when I have to do two daysí work, and then in the middle of it I got a phone call from Tim that was like a maze I couldnít find my way out of.

So I went off on him. You would have been proud of me. I let him know exactly why I didnít have time to give him the cost reports he wanted right now. I listed everything Iíve done for the last three weeks and everything I still have to do this week. I made it sound even worse than it really is, if thatís even possible.

Of course, I immediately backed off. There are two things I donít want him to think. I donít want him to think I canít get the job done. And I really donít want him to think I have so much work that I need ďhelp.Ē So I backed off a little, but not all the way. I think he got the message. He ended up apologizing to me for asking me to do my job.

Looking out the driveway toward the road.

As worn out and exhausted as I felt after a day like that, ďThe Full MontyĒ was just what I needed to bring me back up from the depths. A bunch of us went to dinner before the show, and that was kind of a life saver for me as well. I think sometimes I spend too much time alone and wallowing. Getting me out of the house isnít easy, but itís usually worth it (to me, anyway).

I donít know what would have been worse for the Giants, playing a double header against the Cubs tomorrow or playing an extra-inning game tonight after a three-hour rain delay (and still having to play a day game tomorrow). I guess weíll find out, because they scratched out a 3-2 win in the first half of the midnight-to-dawn twin bill when Jason Ellison hit a two-out RBI single in the eleventh inning.
