Re: Soho show

Yeah, and I wasn't even nude.

In fact, I didn't know what happened to me; I had to go to
Best Buy and buy a quick computer because mine broke and I
was heading down to Belize to work on the gum book (tough
tour of duty), and went into the bathroom at Best Buy--when
I looked down I was COVERED in red measles all up and down
my legs!  It FREAKED me out.  Then my husband got them and
the two of us looked like war victims in our bikinis.  Well,
he wasn't in a bikini, but you know what I mean.  Needless
to say they itched and itched and got worse and worse
because we did not know to take antihistamines. It was NOT a
pretty sight.  So from now on in the South in the grass, I
will wear insect repellent.

Oooops, off topic, end of story.
