Welcome to my virtual salon. Please, come in and do stay awhile.
The Contessa's dream:
...And someday, I shall have a grand mansion where we all can meet, and I will call it "Timely Manor."
Timely: occurring at a suitable or opportune time; well-timed
Manor: the main house on an estate; a mansion
I'll spare you the whole backstory, but below is an email reply from a longtime customer of our company. I found it both sweet and quite amusing. Enjoy! ;]
So, I went to a Michael McN* concert with B&T Friday night. Michael is someone whose music I have long been a fan of. I hadn't seen him in years, but had recently discovered, much to my delight, that he was still making music. B&T had met and befriended Michael when he had played at their friend's big b-day shindig recently. The concert was at a small theatre. We sat in the 5th row, where we had a good view of the stage (and of Michael) without being too close. As he played the first couple songs, he seemed to be looking right at me. I could have brushed it off as my imagination (and my ego in need of a bit of a boost), but then T leaned over to comment to me that he seemed to be spending a lot of time "making eye contact with the 5th row." So, I thought, "OK, perhaps it's not just my imagination, and slightly bruised ego desiring a boost." So, cut to the end of the night, after the show... Michael comes over to talk with B&T, says hello to them and then extends his hand out to me, saying, "and you must be the friend from Flip Flop." I tell him that I saw him perform as an opening act in Flip Flop, sometime around 1990, but I couldn't quite recall who it was that he had opened for. So we have this whole back and forth and eventually figure out that it was Shawn Colvin. "But," he says, "that had to have been sometime around 1993-'95."
words were so convenient
