Monday afternoon, Chad sent me an email telling me that he had plans for a date on Thursday night, but it was a surprise. Fortunately, Chad is not very good at keeping secrets from me, so by Tuesday, I knew the plans- a murder mystery dinner!
So tonight we went to the L & N Depot and watched the performance put on by the Fountain Square Players. We went through different cable cars to hear from all the different suspects. It was fun. The mystery was set in the 1950s, so guests were encouraged to dress from that era. It’s a good thing that Chad broke down and told me where we were going. It was funny when we first got there because we didn’t see anybody dressed up, and we thought everybody was going to be staring at us. No one did though and more showed up in dress as the night went on. There was a prize for the people who had the best outfit. Chad and I could have totally won that, but we didn’t. I wore a skirt, cardigan, and a scarf around my neck, and Chad wore his letter jacket from high school. I have to admit, we were cute.
There was another prize for whoever could solve the mystery. Chad and I thought it was the financial advisor, Aldo Soldi, and we were right. Everyone who solved it correctly got their name put in a basket and then they drew the winner. Guess who it was? That’s right, it was me and Chad. Well, technically, it was Chad’s paper (we both turned one in) but we are a team. The prize? A necklace. Yeah, that’s right a necklace. I know it’s kind of weird prize, but apparently it was designed by a local silversmith especially for the event and has a retail value of $145. It’s not really me, so I don’t know what we are going to do with it yet, but it’s neat that we won.
