Bill Cosby

A few weeks ago, Jonathan and I traveled to Muncie to see Bill Cosby.  Middle stage was an area rug, on which sat a chair and table with a glass of water and Kleenex. 

He sauntered on stage, decked out in Ball State sweat pants and a hoodie, and the audience eruped in applause.  It was surreal to see this icon I grew up watching on The Cosby Show.  Apparently I hadn’t seen him in several years because my first reaction was, “He looks old!”  But at 73 years old, he’s still going strong – and is as funny as ever.

For the next hour, he simply sat and shared stories about his life, ranging from marriage to children to grandchildren, with his animated expressions and lively gestures.

After 47 years of marriage, Cosby is often asked the secret to a long-lasting marriage.  His response?  “I tell them…keep coming home!” 🙂

All in all, it was a delightful evening filled with laughter.  If you ever get a chance to see him, GO!
