I didn't know how drunk I was until I put the sax in my mouth

Went to C-Note last night to see Sax play with a husband and wife singing group reminiscent of eugene levy and catherine o'hara in a Mighty Wind. Anyway, they are hippies who are undercover yuppies, singing protest songs, nature songs and songs about wanting to be a lesbian....

Wifey:"I don't mean to be callous...
To my women loving women friends...
But I need his big fallous..."

Turns out the wife is a member of the Park Slope Food Coop like me but she lives by south street seaport like people who have money. She reminds me of Ruth Six Feet Under with long bland hair and zero makeup. She's a corporate lawyer. Her Polynasian husband was well dressed in diesel jeans, tasteful hair cut and suede loafers. They treated us to Esperanto on Avenue C across from Lex's pad. Really sweet and generous of them. Wine! Tapas! Entrees! Dessert! Cognac! I ordered steak (medium) chimchurri sauce served with yucca fries. I saved half for lunch on account of poverty. Sax (because he thinks like a poor man and he did not want to seem rude) only ordered empanadas but he ate all of my yucca fries.

Wifey: So is this the first time that either of you have lived with a lover...

We felt gay cuz that was a gay question.

I told them how we met. How he made out with my roommate and called me two weeks later...

Then, Sax played his sax with the house band at Esperanto. Everyone dug him. I dug him.

Wifey: Look! Everyone digs him.

The house band invited him to play next Tuesday.

I'm slightly scared of the yuppie/hippie couple.

yeah, they are slightly creepy in a granola and recorder sort of way.

She totally pulled out the recorder during a song the husband sang about loving the ocean as much as he loves his wife.

Come to think of it... I am going to have a Housewarming brunch on 10 September at 2pm at my place. You can hear him then.

Come! I want you there.
