Our Choral Union concert was Saturday night. I had to arrive earlier than Hubby, so I had given him instructions to sit near the back, then I could come and sit with him after the intermission, and until we sang our "grand finale".
The theme for our concert was "love, love, love". Yes, three loves. We opened with "All You Need is Love" , then some selections from Cole Porter and Ira Gershwin (Embraceable You, You Do Something to Me, Let's Do It,) followed by some contemporary songs. The men sang, "Happy Together". It was extremely hard not to sing along with them!
All during the concert, I was scanning the small crowd, trying to find Hubby. With the lights on the stage, and the darkness of the auditorium, it was not easy. But, suddenly I spotted him. He has this little hat that he wears, and breaks the rules by not taking it off when he is inside. It looks similiar to this one, but it's all one color. Usually, it's his work hat, but sometimes he wears it when he's not working. And, tonight he was wearing it. Ah, good. It made it easier to find him.
When it was time for intermission, I made my way towards his direction, which means that I had to come up from behind him. But, as I got closer and closer, I started to doubt my eyes. Have I mentioned that I need to get my eyes checked? I stopped. I looked. Now, in my defense, the auditorium was still pretty dark. I saw the hat. But, it didn't really look like Hubby. I looked again. Nope. I'm now certain. It was not Hubby!
Luckily, Hubby was sitting right where I stopped to reconsider. I quickly sat down beside him, laughing. "I almost sat down with that guy up there!"
Hubby didn't understand. "That guy looks nothing like me."
"I know. But, I was looking at the hat."
Poor Hubby. He just doesn't know what to make of me most of the time. He just shakes his head.
Shortly after, another lady that sings with us, sat down by her husband, who was wearing the hat. I laughed. "Do you think I should tell her I almost sat with her husband?"
"Just keep your mouth shut." He said. And, so I did! But I really wanted to tell her!
