Last night Nina and I saw The Paul F. Tompkins Christmas show at The Largo, it was a great show but I almost missed it. We arrived at the Largo early, got our tickets and then chatted with some other fans. All was going very well, we took our seats and waited for the show to start.
Moments before the show started I suddenly felt very nauseous (this was unrelated to the show, it was caused by something I ate). There was only one thing I could do: I had to leave the theater. I turned to my wife and said, “I’m not feeling well, I think I’m going to be sick”. Her response to me:
Take my keys in case you want to leave.
Think about that for a second. I’m sick, really sick and my wife basically says:
That’s your problem pal. The Paul F. Tompkins Show is about to start and I’m not moving from this seat. You can HAVE my car, I’ll get someone else to drive me home.
I took the keys and left, after a few minutes everything was okay again. I went back and enjoyed the show, then talked to more fantastic people afterward. Before leaving the theater I handed my wife her keys. I thought to ask why she didn’t offer to leave with me but I realized I wouldn’t have wanted to miss the show either. This is why we get along so well.
The next Paul F. Tompkins show will be on January 30th. You can find more info here.
