called and asked if she should drop off the light mayonnaise I lent her for her party last weekend, before her week-long trip to Tucson. I did and told her I could also loan her that Mitch Hedberg CD I'd recommended a few months ago.
announced on FB that he was seeing Hugo 3D at AZ Mills this weekend. I suddenly remembered that I wanted to see it, and AZ Mills is right off I-10, so I asked if she could drop me off at the theater, and she agreed, provided she got to run a few errands first.
During those errands, I played the Hedberg CD and somehow it wasn't as funny as I remember it. A lot of unprofessional vamping at the start of the CD, and a lot of non-starter jokes. The CD I picked was clearly for people who had already seen him do a clean five minutes on cable a few times, or seen a well-edited comedy special, or seen him live.
anyway, once I got dropped off, further adding to my embarrassment, I realized I had no cash and no debit card. So I had to call Melissa and have her double back and loan me $12 so I could get into the theater, find my friends, and get a ride home with one of them.
And then after I saw the movie, I realized that what I should have done was invite her to come see Hugo 3D, because it seems like precisely her kind of movie.
