So, I won the twitter lottery over the weekend. 

"The Book of Mormon" has been in town all month and running a twitter ticket lottery for each show. It just required following their handle, retweeting the "lottery" tweet, and making that tweet as a favorite to be entered in for discounted tickets. I did it a few times and then was away so stopped. 

Over the weekend, closing weekend mind you, I entered the lottery for the last matinee. I won. 2 tickets. To the 2nd to last show. Hello!!
Seriously, it was such a surprise and shocking and awesome. My friend wasn't sure if it was a scam, even as we were at the box office picking up the tickets we were still asking "is this real!?" Once we had the tickets in hand, we checked the seating map. 15th row, orchestra. Those were each 200 dollar seats, for 25 dollars a piece. Hello!
I've been listening to the soundtrack for close to a month, so I was so ready to see the whole show and get even more of the story. I even woke up humming the songs! I was beyond excited once the lights went down.
The show was amazing, our seats phenomenal, and the show was amazing (did I already say that?). I laughed so hard, may have quietly sung along a few times, and just enjoyed seeing the second to last show, for practically free!

Thank you Book of Mormon for the amazing tickets! And if you haven't seen the show - see it!!
