An Aha! Moment

Was hanging out on the swing-set this afternoon when the neighbor came by walking another neighbor's dog. (Yes, it's that kind of neighborhood, welcome to suburbia.) We were chatting about the Metropolitan Opera of course. He and his wife usually get a subscription but they didn't this year. They want to for next year but, just like me, for a variety of reasons they're not able to see 5 or 6 operas... and then it clicked... why not SHARE a subscription? You can exchange tickets for performances you'd rather see AND you can purchase single tickets. Plus you can pay it off in a couple of transactions rather than giving a huge chunk of change all at once. So they're going to look at the info and we'll see if we can agree on a subscription and a seating section. Woot!! That would leave my August 15th free of worrying about slow internet connections and busy telephone lines!!

That's a wonderful idea. I wish I knew someone to share a Met subscription with.
I think Met subscribers are also allowed to pick the best seats prior to 08/15.

We used to split a share for our local organic CSA farm so this idea sort of came from there. I'll post again if/when it happens. Funny, when I was writing this entry I thought, I bet Raisa would split a subscription if she had the chance. I hope you can find someone!!
