I Will Be a Fool For You: More Vacation Reflections

Have you ever done anything foolish because someone you loved asked you to? I did today. We went to the Comedy Barn in Pigeon Forge TN today. This is a fun-filled family show where they ask for audience participation. My youngest daughter felt that it was really important that someone from our family should participate. Since you have to be over 18, that meant either her brother, her dad or me. The men in the family are very shy, and not the participation type. So I stepped up and decided that I would make her dream come true and be the one to participate.

So, I got to be a part of the show today. I was one of six men and women who were a part of the show called "Hillbilly Survivor". I don't want to give anything away, just in case you decide to come down here and enjoy the show. But if you ever get to the Angelmeg household I am sure my kids will gladly show you the commemorative DVD of the show that they bought. I am sure they will be showing it at every family get together from now until long after I am dead.

It was a small price to pay to see the happy look on my daughter's face as I returned to my seat after my stellar "performance". And while I have no problem getting up in front of a group of people to give a talk on Catholicism, or Grace, or The Mystics, or any other topic under the sun. I don't think I want to make a career of being in the spotlight. I love the anonymity of my little corner of the blogosphere where those who know me, know me and those who don't, don't.

But it was nice being a star, in my daughter's eyes, even if it meant having to be a fool on digital video for eternity.

You can bet I will get around to posting that video right about the time Lucifer dons ice skates my friend.
