Billy was taking her out to the opera. She was dizzy with excitement at the idea. Her admiration for him hadn’t abated since he was a senior to her junior in high school. If cornered she’d have said he was certainly a champagne to her beer – and sometimes weed – tastes. She hadn’t seen him in ten years and they’d recently hooked up on Facebook.

She was expecting a fresh and sophisticated dimension to her life. She raided her sister’s closet for the perfect dress, a yellow as bright as sunshine and the highest heels. He picked her up at her door dressed in jeans and a t-shirt that read “The Jam” showing psychedelic strawberries beating huge drums.

Oh, he said, I wouldn’t recommend what you’re wearing, you’re a bit over-dressed! I’m employed at The Opera, a heavy metal club, that’s where we’re going.

I’m the bouncer.

  1. Ha! I wonder is she really disappointed or just surprised?

  2. This is fun. And speaking for myself (despite my love of champagne) I would be more comfortable at The Opera than the opera.

    1. Give me opera every time. I had season tickets for about 30 years to the Canadian Opera Company's wonderful productions!

  4. Ah, we never know, do we, where life will lead. Some people we expect to go in one direction go in the opposite. Good story!

  5. Well done! A bit of a let down for her, expecting a real opera, but at least he's taking an interest like he didn't in high school.

    1. Yes, whether she's reevaluating her crush is another story!

  6. A nice story. An embarrassing misunderstanding! I like the idea that he "was champagne to her beer".

    1. I think she has to lower her aspirations to reality perhaps?
