It doesn't excuse the fact that I've missed seeing the Portland Gay Men's Chorus twice in a row, even though I have season tickets this year.
Back in March they had their cabaret that promised to be a lot of fun. It happened on the first day of March, so the turning of the calendar was how I didn't remember the concert. This time around I was determined to not forget the concert. It was on Saturday. I was not planning any other events on Saturday, using the day to rest and enjoy the men singing. I had my breakfast, did some cleaning, took a nap in the afternoon, then woke up in time to shower and dress and go out for a little bit of dinner before the concert. It was going to be at the First Congregational Church which meant that parking was going to be tricky, but I found a spot and after a latte and scone went to the park across the street to wait. I wasn't going to miss it this time. Right?
After noting the lack of activity at the church I took a look at the ticket. May 3rd. 2 pm.
I think next time I'm going to hook up with friends and go with them. It will ensure that I get there. In the meantime, the PGMC have my donation toward their concerts.
