When I saw Wicked in Kansas City I had to see it again. It was spectacular. So several months ago I rounded up some great friends to come with and we're going to shake Chicago down!
What I see in our Wicked future:
- Wicked the Musical
- Garrett's Popcorn
- Martinis at the Signature Room
- An 8 Mile Run on Great Trails
- A Chicago Dog/Chicago Style Pizza
- A Great Weekend with Great Girlfriends
- Who Knows What Else with Us!
One of the songs from Wicked is One Short Day. I find this song very fitting for our weekend. It reminds me a lot of Chicago and the friendships of those that are heading that way. Here are some of the lyrics:
ONE SHORT DAY IN THE EMERALD CITY ...
ONE SHORT DAY IN THE EMERALD CITY
ONE SHORT DAY FULL OF SO MUCH TO DO
EV'RY WAY THAT YOU LOOK IN THIS CITY THERE'S SOMETHING EXQUISITE
YOU'LL WANT TO VISIT BEFORE THE DAY'S THROUGH!
THERE ARE BUILDINGS TALL AS QUOXWOOD TREES
HUNDRED STRONG …
THERE ARE WONDERS LIKE I'VE NEVER SEEN
IT'S ALL GRAND
AND IT'S ALL GREEN
I THINK WE'VE FOUND THE PLACE WHERE WE BELONG!
I WANNA BE IN THIS HOI POLLOI
SO I'LL BE BACK FOR GOOD SOMEDAY
TO MAKE MY LIFE AND MAKE MY WAY
BUT FOR TODAY, WE'LL WANDER AND ENJOY …
ONE SHORT DAY IN THE EMERALD CITY ONE SHORT DAY TO HAVE A LIFETIME OF FUN ONE SHORT DAY…
AND WE'RE WARNING THE CITY:
NOW THAT WE'RE IN HERE
YOU'LL KNOW WE'VE BEEN HERE
BEFORE WE ARE DONE!
WHAT A WAY TO BE SEEING THE CITY...
WHERE SO MANY ROAM TO
WE'LL CALL IT HOME TOO
AND THEN, JUST LIKE NOW WE CAN SAY:
WE'RE JUST TWO FRIENDS …
TWO GOOD FRIENDS …
TWO BEST FRIENDS …
SHARING ONE WONDERFUL ONE SHORT …ONE SHORT DAY IN THE EMERALD CITY...
Stories to come...
