How do I explain?
It was Gay Bingo! Every month, these hilarious, fabulously gay men hold a bingo party to raise money for different groups. Last month it was held for Lupus. They had an all-time record of 259 people.
After the game I asked Brett if he was uncomfortable. He made an uncharacteristically few amount of jokes the whole evening, especially considering the material that was right before his eyes.
He said, "Yeah, a little bit."
So I said, "Why, because we're LDS?"
And he said, shocked, "No! Because I'm a straight man!"
I love my husband.
Oh, and if you're wondering "Did Kelly manage to embarrass herself the whole evening?" The answer, of course, is a resounding YES!
After I parked the car and was walking in, I called Brett to let him know which side I was coming in. Walking behind a fabulously dressed man in a Las Vegas Show Girl costume, I said
"Hey honey, I'm coming in the back way."
The man turned and glared at me. The only thing I could think to say was,
"No pun intended!"
He laughed, and I peed my pants, and the night went on with even more blunders on my part.
Anyway, what a huge success. It was very touching to see Annette, whose little Olivia suffers from Lupus, do the addition, and then to see the tears that formed in her eyes. To see all of those people there, supporting a good cause, and having a good time. Everyone was so generous. It was AWESOME!
