For those of you who do not know, The Capitol Steps is a comedy group made of former DC staffers and the like. They make fun of politics and current events. NPR stations tend to have them on as new years entertainment. I had been bemoaning the fact that we had missed hearing them for the past couple of years for various reasons. So when Bill called up his wife on the carpool home and started discussing whether or not they were going to see the Capitol Steps, I had to butt in and ask when and where they were playing.
It turned out they were playing that night in Concord. There was not enough time for us to make it home. And as it was, we had to drive back south a half hour to drop Darrell off at his car. But we managed to go see a performance for the first time in a long while!
Bill and Patricia were kind enough to have us over for dinner, and then we all went off to the show together. I was not sure what Tyson would think of the Capitol Step’s humor. Luckily, they did not disappoint. We had a great time. I don’t think I have seen Tyson laugh that hard in a long while.
