Our last day in Chicago was one long downpour, so we decided to make the best of it and visit the Art Institute. Little did I know what amazing pieces were waiting inside but, first things first … we needed tickets!
We shuffled over to the ticket counter and were greeted by a pleasant lady. By the end of this transaction I was rolling with laughter. :)) Seems Candice misunderstood the question she was asked.
So what did the lady at the ticket counter ask?
- What’s your best pose?
- What’s that on your nose?
- What color are your toes?
- What’s your zip code?
Candice paused, clearly baffled, halfheartedly struck a pose, then asked for clarification on the question. The lady couldn’t possibly be asking what she heard, right?! LOL. The moment was priceless. We all had a good laugh and that lovely museum employee will probably be telling that story every time someone misunderstands her question. :))
The museum came with an unexpected surprise for me. When I looked through the hallway opening and saw Sunday Afternoon on the Island of the Grand-Jatte (1884-1886) by Georges Seurat, it took my breath away. It was huge and all inspiring. Oh … and Monet? He was next door. 🙂 I won’t go on about it. Suffice to say, it was a fantastic day. Here are some random snapshots from our Chicago weekend (mostly iPhone shots in the mix).
