All of them are not in the text.
Some of them are just about getting to the opera.
And the Met is celebrating 100 years of opera and so presenting one of its masterpieces for the opening – Wagner at his best, if you can measure that just by the length of the opera: 5 hours and 13 minutes all told.
My next food preparation for the opera was making brownies (sans walnuts for David’s benefit). I did those so late at night that when they came out of the oven I didn't even want to taste one. Dropping into bed was the nicest thing I could think of.
I had hot oatmeal raspberry muffins on the counter when he woke up, so as to jump start his appetite. Not that he took one. But I did have them ready for him. As well I made cheese sandwiches which should have been a highlight but they were on focaccia buns and the spice overpowered David on the first bite. I can’t hit 100% with my choices every time. I can't even do 50 %.
