Wandered down to the bank to change travellers cheques and may have just as well been asking to exchange the currency of the planet Krypton. Silly me....I thought it was a simple case of slap the traveller's cheques on the counter, produce ID and sign on the dotted line. Nope, the quizzical look on the teller's face told me I should have brought a flask of coffee and something to read. She enquired as to whether I had an account there, sought advice from fellow teller Britney, made phone calls all over the place and eventually decided it was indeed a case of slap the traveller's cheques on the counter, etc. I enquired as to whether they had many people from away pass through here and she responded that they didn't. Qu'elle surprise!
In the evening we met up with Michelle and Alan and headed off to the Madlab Theatre where we were to see a performance of 'Dada...As Translated To Stage' by Cincinnati playwright Alan Jozwiak
At the end performers made a point of shaking hands with and thanking those who made the effort to come.
Post performance bites were to be found at 'The Burgundy Room' in N. High Street. We opted for a Bud Lite each while waiting for a table. When we were seated, we ordered various tapas which we mixed and matched. We were in an ideal position to people watch and the possible private lives of fellow diners were pondered and discussed: "She's so much older than him and he's gay anyway" etc. The modern day equivalent of Victorian parlour games? Who cares! You have to make your own entertainment these days.
