The things that man does for me...

At some point on this blog I mentioned how much I wanted to see Leonard Cohen in concert, but the show was sold out. Husbandly One called the venue manager (a good friend of his who ALWAYS gets us tickets when we ask) at the time, and our friend told him that he literally had nothing left, the show had sold out completely in 15 minutes.

Fast forward to this week. At it turned out, Leonard Cohen is actually my client at the hotel, so you'd think I would have some kind of "in" for tickets. As it turns out, no.

This afternoon, Husbandly One was over at the venue for a completely different reason, and he casually asked the manager if anything had freed up. Manager slowly asked Husbandly One what he needed. Husbandly One said one ticket, just one, it's just that Wifely One wants this so bad, I just need one seat for her. Just please, if you can, take care of Wifely One.

Venue manager said that would never do, Wifely One should be treated like a lady and not be sent out without a date, and he came up with two tickets for us.

Absolute WORST seats in the house, (which is why they got cancelled) but I am on cloud nine. I'M GOING TO LEONARD COHEN.

I'm just so touched that Husbandly One's priority was ME, he didn't care if he missed the show as long as I got to go.

Knew I kept him around for a reason....
