(at the multiplex no less.
The ladies in front of us had champagne flutes, the ladies in the back had nachos. Not that I'm complaining.)
I was (of course) listening to Betty Wright.
I couldn't help but think that any number of Betty's songs should be made into an opera.
Am I right?
For instance maybe this one (the classic "Baby sitter")
This could be the aria:
"I should have been aware of the babysitter I should have known from the jump yeah She was a man getter So girls if you want your man And no one else Buy yourself some sizzle pants And babysit your baby yourself"
Or maybe "You're a Hoe".
It does have a better plot.
