December Daily: Day 15

Tonight was the second night of our Christmas drama "Little Drummer Boy." Almost every year we have something "memorable" happen. Three years ago, the stage guys were in the process of removing a desk during a scene change, when they dropped it & it broke into several pieces. There was a collective gasp from the audience & instead of quickly removing the pieces while the lights were off, they quickly ran for cover behind the curtains! ;) Last year, the lights came on too soon & the stage people gave a 'deer in the headlights' look & scurried quickly for cover!
This year has been no exception in the "memorable" department. On Sunday, all the cast members & others involved in the drama ate (a very delicious, btw) lunch together in the parsonage basement so that practice could begin immediately following. The program followed in the evening & everything was considered a success. Until today... we found out that almost everyone who ate lunch at the parsonage ended up sick all night last night & part of today. We think it was the chicken.... Unfortunately, my poor husband was one of the worst hit. Apparently, he really enjoyed the chicken, so he 'loaded up'.
Everyone came in moaning & groaning tonight about how sick they'd been. To those of us who didn't get it or had a very mild case of it, it was REALLY funny! And next year, they'll think it was pretty funny, too....
