For my birthday this year Liz got tickets to see Brian Wilson perform "Pet Sounds" in its entirety. With the Boston Pops backing up his already crackerjack band. Better still, one of my friends in the Pops gave us a tour of the backstage before the concert began. Those are wins all around. Anyway, my friend was pretty funny about the tour. She said Brian rested on a Barcalounger just off stage before the previous night's concert, and sure enough, he was doing the same thing before ours. And yes, her tour walked right past the guy himself. I am ashamed to admit it, but I froze for a moment to wonder if I should have said something to the legend. Dare I say, even take a photograph with him. Or, heaven forbid, a selfie with the unsuspecting Beach Boy in the background. Alas, I did nothing, which is probably the right move, but that missed opportunity does stick with me. A bit. I will say this, he didn't look particularly healthy.
Anyway, for some reason they didn't play "Surf's Up" that night. Talk about missed opportunities.
Share the puzzle. New one on Monday.
