Mock Turtleneck Guy was back at the sing-along on Friday night - this time in a purple one. I can't even handle how awesome this is. I mean, if you're going to chose a uniform, something that you can wear every day to any event because it is casual but with just a hint of sophistication (for 1991), and something that looks great with pleated slacks, you cannot go wrong with a short-sleeved mock turtleneck. We chatted with him and his wife after the show and I almost asked them their names but decided against it. It would ruin the magic if I knew too many personal details. Although they are big into making out during the slower songs, which is plenty personal if you ask me. The west side of the amphitheater starts to resemble the SNL hot tub luv-ahs skit, minus the facial hair.
Besides, I'm developing a very elaborate story for them in my mind. So far I have that they live in Glendale with their two kids (we've seen the kids, they are adorable in that awkward pre-teen phase of life.), she teaches art at the senior center, he teaches choir at a private middle school. They met in Berlin where they were both doing study abroad. He's working on a cantata that he hopes to premier at the 1st Presbyterian Church at Christmas time but the church is going through a rather heated ministerial change that may foil the whole thing, that is, if he actually finishes it. She's working on her PhD in 16th century German folk art but her fervor for the subject is waning and now she just wants to get it done so she can focus on her real passion, the recorder. She's in a recorder ensemble at the church, which is also threatening to disband because the soon-to-be ousted minister's wife leads it. They host regular block parties but get annoyed when Francis from down the street brings bread pudding when she knows full well they are all gluten intolerant. Their children are involved in Tai Kwon Do, community theater, and foklorico dance. They went to Washington D.C. on vacation. He only got sunburned on his forearms and the top half of his neck.
