So lali never dresses up for work. If the hipstamatic photos on our blog are proof, our usual getup is jeans and a t-shirt. However, in lyrics of Maria, yesterday, this was what lali sang: (and felt)
I feel pretty,
Oh, so pretty,
I feel pretty and witty and bright.
And I pity
Any girl who isn’t me tonight.
And if you haven’t guessed why we dressed up by now, you obviously have a y chromosome.
That’s right boys who don’t know what this song is from, we went to see West Side Story!
We had a fancy dinner and cocktails at Hungry Cat, danced our way down Vine St to the Pantages, and hummed and snapped along to all the lyrics of West Side Story. Technically, it was my wonderful idea to give Jacqui tickets as a birthday present, Lindsey adopted the idea for her best friend Sasha‘s birthday, but really it was a present for all of us.
And since we were in a singing mood, we shrilly trilled along to “Do Re Mi” on the car ride home, even all singing different parts at points.
And even though we’re back to our normal attire of t-shirts, jeans and flip flops, in the spirit of Maria and with extra vibrato:
Such a pretty face,
Such a pretty dress,
Such a pretty smile,
Such a pretty [us]!
