P-town here we cooooooooooooome

To celebrate our first wedding anniversary (again), the uber-romantical B planned a surprise weekend trip to Provincetown. About a month ago he told me not to make any plans this weekend because we were going on a trip. But he wouldn't tell me where. Naturally, at first I was all YOU'VE RENTED A LIMO AND YOUR TAKING ME TO P.F. CHANG'S! And when I was all done with that, as hard as I tried to get him to talk, the man's mouth was shut tighter than a 16-year-old girl's legs as she sits in the waiting room of her very first gynecology appointment. OH, memories. And then as we were sitting down the dinner at Lauren's wedding feeling all lovey -- and I hope by now you know by "lovey" I mean "champagney" -- when he finally decided he would tell me if I guessed correctly.

Me: Oh! Yes! Okay ... Bar Harbor?

B: No.

Me: Portland?

B: No, think south. You really want to go here.

Me: NEW ORLEANS? Are we going to New Orleans?!

B: I already told you we're driving. This is a weekend trip.

Me: New York? Philadelphia? D.C.?

B: Are you being dumb on purpose? You were just talking about how you really want to spend a weekend here.

Me: Bar ... Harbor?

B: Ugh. It's on the Cape.

Me: Nantucket!

B: No.

Me: Martha's ... Vine ... yard?

B: NO.

Me: I don't know any other towns on the Cape.

B: Are you serious right now? Use your brain. You spent an afternoon here once.

Me: I've never been to the Cape. Hyannis?

B: Oh my god. You're doing this on purpose.

Me: ... Can you just tell me?

B: Thiiiiiiiink.


And then he told me that as an added bonus, he also got us tickets to go see a play that I would also have to guess but I've been dying to see it.


B: Um no.

Me: ...

Me: ...

Me: ... The Little Mermaid?

B: Okay hint: Jersey Shore.

Me: ...

Me: ... Jersey ... Boys?


Interestingly enough, I've never actually even thought let alone said that I had any desire to see Jersey Boys, but now that B's gotten us tickets, I'm pretty excited 1) because I love musicals and 2) because ah get all kahnds of excited whenever we dun get an excuse to slip off our small town overalls and spend a sophisticated-laik night in that thaire big fancy city. And who knows, I might get some P.F. Chang's out of it after all.

I don't actually know anything about Jersey Boys, but I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess that the storyline has nothing to do with Seaside Heights, family dinners or fist pumping put to music (if only), but that certainly doesn't make me any less excited.

Anyway, I've been so excited for this upcoming trip that I was perusing through the local Provincetown calendar of events to see what's happening this weekend and I'm thrilled to report that not only is there an Underwear Party at Club Purgatory tonight, there's also a Leather Party on Saturday. It's going to be a good weekend, ya'll.

I wish I had read this post sooner, lol. By now, you have probably already been to purgatory and I don't need to tell you to pick your jaw up off the floor. Hope you had fun and have password protected to pictures you took, lol. Happy Anniversary from one Masshole to another ;)
