The highlight of the trip was that we were going to see CATS (it was the early 80s shut up)- it was playing at some fancy theater and we were all going to THE GREEK ISLANDS and then to see CATS.
I remember the OPA! Being shouted.....and thinking YAY Saganaki!
And then "Oh watch out!"
and then the waiter, who was directly behind me, tipped his tray full of flaming cheese on top of my head. Singing my hair,and spilling hot burning goat cheese into my hair and all down my back.
They brought over wet towels and wiped me off.
But then, you'd think someone might take me back over to the hotel for a quick change and freshen.
Then we all went to CATS. Me with my hair flat,singed and missing in some places, covered in greasy goat cheese. The songs from CATS still evoke the scent of burned aquanet and saganaki.
I was reminded of this story, because Cats is coming to Atlanta.
And now, I suddenly would like some saganaki........
