- Still Here!

 Oh my, I'm so behind in my blogging, aren't I? It's been forever since we've visited each other here, isn't it? 

Well, no worries, as they say - I'm doing just peachy, although I've been pretty pooped lately, waiting for my increased thyroid meds to kick in. Silly hypo-thyroid! Who needs it?

Last Friday night, I went to Brockville, Ontario to do a Girls' Night Out Concert Of Hope. It was fun! 

Here's what the crowd looked like when I got up on stage:

Wow! Pretty big crowd, huh? Yup, yup - I'm one popular chick, I tell you. Okay, maybe this wasn't the exact crowd, but it was pretty similar.

Okay, so it was nothing like that. But 160 women came to see me, which was pretty darn cool, since they'd never heard of me & didn't really know what they were getting into. 

They were one crazy bunch! I got to do my Depends gag with them! What's that, you ask? Well, you know when ladies get older, sometimes they can lose a bit of bladder control, right? That means when they laugh, things can happen. Like, you know, small little leaks. You know what I'm saying? So that's why some smart business people invented diapers for adults.

Well, when that many ladies get to laughing over my jokes, things can happen. So just for a laugh, I bring along a bag of Depends, and when the laughter gets to a certain pitch, I pull out my bag of Depends and show it to the crowd.


Which gets them laughing even harder! And then, of course, I pull out a few Depends & start throwing them into the crowd. I threw out one to the section on the left, one to the middle section, and one to the right. I told them to share. Which would be really difficult, when you think about it. Not that I want to. Think about it, that is.

Anyways, it got a good laugh. And because I told them how expensive those things are, they even brought them back to me at the end of the concert, which was very thoughtful of them, don't you think? I think so.
It was a wonderful concert. They didn't really want much singing, so I did mostly comedy! They gave me a standing ovation, and the organizer said I had to come back again & do another show sometime. "Oh, if you insist," I said. Then I went out into the foyer & sold some CDs, made some new friends, and apologized for any accidents they may have had while laughing. 

I mean, it's not like I had enough Depends for everyone there. I'm not Celine, you know. I'm not made of money.

And even though Celine has lots of money, I'm sure she doesn't throw Depends into the crowd. That's more of a Wendy thing.

Well, what more can I say? I think I've said it all for tonight. You won't believe this (or maybe you will), but it's 4:30-ish am and I haven't gone to bed, yet. I got busy on my little computer here, blogging away amongst other things, and suddenly....poof! It's almost daybreak! I really must get my rest!

So ttfn - ta ta for now, dear friends, and see you again person, on Facebook, or right here in bloggy-land!

xoxox Love, Wendy
