My husband was given tickets to a special charity event held by the company he works for. It is a dinner and entertainment night. We had a nice dinner and then went to the auditorium for the show. Our tickets were for the third row center. Oh, I forgot to mention that we took the baby with us.
So we are sitting in front and Sinbad comes out. He looks around and asks for the lights to be turned up because he likes to interact with the audience. I'm thinking, uh-oh. I also forgot to say that I'm an introvert and would have been more than happy to sit at the back and remain unnoticed.
Sinbad starts his routine and then watches my husband hand me the baby(he was hungry, the baby!) and jokes about how men always hand the baby off. Then he wants to know how many children we have. Hubby says eight, and everyone is like "Eight! Are you serious?" So then he starts joking about that. He finally moves onto something else but keeps coming back to us and our eight kids. It was embarrassing but funny. I kept wondering if he would be able to relate the current topic to us again and then he would. So finally the routine was over and we got to go backstage. Sinbad took a break before he came out but when he did he saw my husband holding our babe and said "It's the man with the eight babies!" Funny. Then we took a pic with him. It was a fun night.
I'm wearing the cool shades 'cause I can't keep my eyes open for a flash picture.
