First of all, very cool.

Secondly, whose life did Keith save?

And lastly, how in the heck have neither of you had an uncontrollable giggling fit at the worst possible moment? Because that seems impossible.

Shannon said...

Ummm - when were you in Las Vegas?

Becky said...

Shannon - details details. No, neither of us have been to Vegas. I've fixed the list. It wasn't the easiest process, getting all these things to be their pretty colours. They weren't behaving for a while. Obviously, that one got past me.

gcq - I couldn't actually put my finger on a specific time where I've giggled at the worst possible moment, so I didn't feel like I should highlight it. But you're right - there is a good likelihood that it HAS happened. Especially for Keith. Wait, no... especially for me.

I'll let Keith explain the life-saving incident when he gets home from work. :)

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas... ;)
