About 20 years ago we bought our first video camcorder to film our grandchildren. Before Hubby left for work, he told me to take it to the mall with me and practice with it. I was very excited to see the Platters, who were doing a free concert in the mall. I found a seat in the back, and turned on the video camcorder and proceeded to film them as they sang a hit song. I squinted one eye at them and kept the other on the view finder. I filmed them as they sang, greeted the audience and talked to a person filming a copyrighted event. I kept thinking, What an idiot! Then one of the guys said, "LADY! Turn it off!"
I wanted to sink to the floor. But, I wanted to hear their concert, so I put it in my purse, shrugged and mouthed an apology.
Then I hurried home to wait for my hubby to return home from his afternoon shift so I could give him a piece of my mind...like The Platters gave me a piece of theirs.
Uhm, I know better now, so I will not be bringing a video cam to the event on Friday. I do have a cell phone...hmmm.
I will be dressing in period attire for the private event which has an 70s/80s theme. I may be stopped this time for street walking.
