Instant Date

One of the things I love about the Boy is that he's a fellow musician. It's nice to have that in common. We often get together with friends to play chamber music. Sometimes we'll play duets, just the two of us.

And he likes the opera and classical music. So we go to see recitals and/or concerts at least once a week. It's a great way to take advantage of the fact that we live in New York.

But maybe the best thing about being with a fellow musician is this..

He owns a tuxedo.

That means he's always ready to escort me to a fancy work event. And surprisingly, this is a fact that has come in remarkably useful in the past few months.

A few months ago, my firm had tickets to see Hillary Rodham Clinton speak at a dinner. We were told about 2 hours beforehand.

None of my female coworkers could get their boyfriends to come on such short notice.

But MY Boy threw on his tuxedo and was there in time for dinner! So I was the only one there who had a date, heehee.

Last weekend, I had a fancy dinner with work people. There was a last-minute space available at our table.

The Boy had already resigned himself to an evening in his pajamas in front of the tv.

But when my boss said the word, I called him from my cell phone, and he was there within the hour!

Everyone was really impressed. He looked good, too.

When asked how he managed to get dressed so expeditiously, the Boy grinned and joked, "It's actually a tuxedo-shaped one-piece jumper. There's a zipper on the back. And I used a phone booth on the way."

THIRTYSOMETHING (!!) year old Asian American New Yorker, lawyer, amateur musician, curious girl taking a bite out of the Big Apple. Don't mess with me - I'm short and I look demure, but I carry a big purse. And I've just embarked on the journey of married life in Manhattan.
