My mom was invited to see--no lie--whirling dervishes perform next Thursday. She won't drive into Knoxville alone, so she asked if I'd go with her and see the whirling dervishes.
I have no desire to see whirling dervishes. But I do want to see Rigoletto next weekend, and I don't want to go alone, so I said I'd see the whirling dervishes with Mom if she'd come to see Rigoletto with me.
So I just bought tickets to Rigoletto online, and even for the crappy seats at the very back of the Tennessee Theater I paid $95 for two tickets plus fees plus a will-call fee since they won't mail tickets within a week of a performance. I'm kind of wondering what the hell I'm thinking, and wondering if we'll be able to see the surtitles from our seats, and wondering if Knoxville Opera Company sells T-shirts now.
(Probable answers: I am insane, no, and no.)
