|Tickets for Wicked, anyone?|
I thought the professor was just making a joke.
But I have come to know that part of the filmic / theatre experience involved snacks and pre-theatre drinks.
|Ice Cream at MacDonalds|
the non-drinkers option for pre-theatre drink
Wyona has been a good example to me.
She thinks far ahead on the subject of treats and has the soda cold and in one corner of a bag that is just the right size for sweets, and the other treats are unwrapped in separate zip lock bags and portions for the number of people accompanying her to the theatre. There is a bit of heart failure at the door when an usher asks to look in the bag, but apparently we pass the test, for there is no alcohol content in our purses. In fact, one usher asked to look in Zoe’s bag, Zoe opened it up and the usher said, “Great snacks!” and motioned her on.
Duncan and I have been attending West End performances and varying our sweets. Last night we had Starbursts, Cadbury’s Bits Wispa, Cadbury’s Crunchie Rocks, Cadbury’s Caramel Nibbles and Cadbury’s Milk Chocolate. We entertained ourselves on the tube ride there, by reading the wrappers of the Starbursts.
1. Balance a Starburst on your nose.
2. Balance three Starbursts on your finger (it doesn’t designate which finger)
3. Keep quiet for one minute. NO giggling.
4. Make a noise like a pig while hopping like a kangaroo.
Duncan shared the treats with Thomas Ten Cate and Makmiller Pedroso, who had tickets on the front row with us. We had enough treats that we could have shared with all 20 people on the front row. All of this to say that I learned something else last night.

a chance to retrieve Starbursts from melted chocolate
When the treat bag sits on the lap of a warm eleven year old, this is what the treats looks like at the end of the night.
We left it in the fridge all day and tonight we tried to mine the Starbursts back out of the chocolate rock.
