Saturday night I went to Jackson State to see their production of “The Color Purple.” I must say – musicals are growing on me. The production was really good and I was most pleased with how I’d chosen to spend my Saturday night.
I’d asked a couple of friends if they wanted to go with and no one responded with a “yes.” So I bought my ticket and after bidding Smoochy and LG adieu, I headed over to campus to see what was what. Shortly after a confusing moment or two at the box office window (do better with your process JSU) I was in my seat chillaxing waiting for the show to start. Got a text from one of my friends asking me where I was. Told her. Who are you with? By myself. She responded that she could never go anywhere by herself and didn’t know how I did it.
Let me be the first to admit – I wish someone had decided to go with me. I’d have loved to chat and grab a bite to eat before or after the show. But no one did, so oh well. My mama told me a long time ago that if there was something I wanted to do I should do it – whether anyone else went went me or not. So I do. And I’ve never regretted it. I’m always a bit taken aback when people tell me they refuse to go anywhere by themselves. I get it. But really, I don’t. You only go ’round once – why pass up opportunities that may not present themselves again?
Do you roll solo or is having company an absolute must for you?
