Blue Man Group

D got us tickets to see Blue Man Group for my birthday. I'd never been and was excited for the experience and experience it was!
Midway through the show, the Blue Men come out into the audience. They just climb about and interact in their "odd" way. I had an aisle seat and on their first wander around one came and kept looking at me. Then he came back. And held out his hand.

D whispered "I think they want you to go with them..."

And went with them I did. Onto the stage. In front of a hundred people. And with 3 Blue Men.

They had me sit at this table that was laid out. I had some vest contraption put on me and the fun continued. I swayed and bopped along to the music with them, trying to not just sit there and laugh from shock and slight embarrassment.

They put out a vase of flowers, just staring at me. Then a candle which I had to light with a lighter. One Blue Man used a fire extinguisher to put it out - scared the you know what out of me!

Then out came the twinkies. They couldn't open theirs so I opened them. Then they began to cut them, so I cut mine. We shared some pieces from plate to plate. Then they put a piece onto their forks and prepared to eat them....they all ate their piece and I sat there laughing and thinking "I so can't eat this!" So as the Blue Man next to me stared at me, I put my fork into his mouth! After a few more minutes, when he then tried to feed me I quickly mouthed "I can't eat it!"

Then they vacuumed up the twinkies, our chests shot out banana "vomit" (at this point I was laughing SO hard). We took a Polaroid selfie and I got a take-away container with bananas and twinkies with a bow on top plus out Polaroid.

When I got back to my seat, D was laughing SO hard and insisted he had nothing to do with it.

What an experience and what a show. Perfect way to spend my birthday evening!

Bet you will never look at bananas or twinkies the same way again!

wow, that's hilarious! I would think there are many people who can't eat twinkies...but that's funny that you fed the blue man!

I had wondered if it was a birthday set up, but even better that it was serendipity!

Oh my that had to have been exciting and yet scary at the same time. I'm not sure how I would have handled it. - By the way I missed wishing you a Happy Birthday so here is a "belated" wish & may you have many more happy birthday's to come.
