So it should come as a surprise that both of us, along with Lindsay -- who was in an even stickier financial situation than I since her debit card had just been 'eaten' -- decided to go see Les Mis one night at Queen's Theatre for 60 GBP a piece. With what money were you planning on buying that ticket?, you ask. Well, this is the part where I explain to you how resourceful and imaginative I am. I emailed my mom and proposed to her that she buy me the ticket as an early birthday present, and then just remember to not buy me a birthday present later that year. She agreed, and bought me the ticket. And so, we saw Les Mis! And a wonderful time was had by all. It was a great birthday experience, if I do say so myself.
P.S. My birthday is in September.
