An excellent "date"
He was well-dressed, with his trademark sense of style and his favorite orange polka-dot bow tie. We had a nasty drive up I5, but it was made better by Starbucks and a storytelling game. And then the play was really excellent, quite possibly one of the best shows I've ever seen. He laughed, clapped, oohed and aahhed, and raised his hand to ask questions of the actors after the show. After, we drove home and took the rest of the family out to dinner with us, and he told his dad all about it. How Peter flew with wires to lift him up, how Tinkerbell was just a light but how things on stage moved when she "touched" them, how the crocodile costume and dog costumes worked, and how they made a "real splashing sound" when Hook jumped off the plank.
