Sunday started out in brilliant fashion with bright sunshine and fifty-degree temps and just blessedly went up from there. We took full advantage as we have our next 5k coming up soon, so after a two-mile run 'round the 'hood yesterday, we ran the full 3 miles at the downtown airport today; watching private jets take off and land while we ran. Quick trip home, picked up Kiko at the airport and back to downtown KC for theater and tacos....in that order.
Entering the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts (pictured above) once again, I wonder to myself if the shock and awe I get from seeing this architectural marvel from every angle will ever escape me. I still get a burst of pride for KC every time I walk through. We were there to see the Green Day musical American Idiot. I am a minor Green Day fan and was very excited, especially since Kiko had scored front row seats.
As we crossed the street toward our eats while looking back one last time at that magnificent performing arts center, one of my cohorts commented on how she was never a "headbanger". I replied, "well, I was for a time".
We ate at Los Tules, a bastion of fine Mexican grub.
Ah, who am I kidding? My "lost youth" can stay lost as far as I'm concerned. I took my sweet damn time growing up, was frankly lucky to have survived my wilder days and am good with a tiny dollop of long-overdue maturity. Still it was good to briefly revisit those wanton days of youthful hoo-rah.....as long as it was only briefly.
