Recently, Parker was in a production of Young Frankenstein at his college. While the humor is really not his (or my) style, the cast did a great job and it was a fun show! I'm glad I got a chance to see it twice because, as with most musicals, there was so much to see. I pay more attention to the ensemble than most audience members, partly because Parker was in the ensemble this time, but also because there is so much fun one misses if they only watch the leads. Parker has some great high laugh lines in the musical and was Count Dracula at the end.

Parker was in a production of Our Town while he was also rehearsing for Young Frankenstein. It is rare for him to have much time between plays and most of the time he is in multiple shows at a time. He still takes a full course load (always getting A's) and works part time in his college scene shop. I really don't know how he juggles it all so well.

|Tofu Po'boy and vegan potato salad.|
One of Josie's favorite sandwiches right now is a Tofu Po'Boy from a highly unlikely local restaurant. They only have a couple vegan options, but the sandwich and the vegan potato salad are great and hard to find in other places in town. Watson's is within walking distance of Rob's work so it makes a great place to meet him for lunch. The tofu is fried so not something to eat often, but it is tasty and a great place to eat with non-vegans. A couple of directors have used this place to feed the cast/crews of films so it is nice for them to have an easy vegan option for my kids. We took my dad there for the first time recents and he ordered a salad with the tofu instead of chicken. I'll have to try that sometime.
I'm not a big romantic. My husband loves romantic gestures in movies, but most of the time they make me cringe. I think it comes from having too many sweet, but obviously non-lasting romances pre-marriage. I was engaged several times before I met Rob and by the time we got together I was over it. I wanted a partnership and something realistic instead of a movie scene. Once in a while, even I get that warm fuzzy feeling from a show that makes me forget all the ugliness in life. I have to admit this scene from Schitt's Creek might go down as one of my top three romantic moments in a show.
If you don't watch Schitt's Creek, you should!
