Elizabeth went to see B.B. King play a show the other night and files this report: "He walked out onstage and began throwing things from his pockets into the audience. I think it was candy? [Editor's note: B.B. King makes commercials about being diabetic. Perhaps he was tossing guitar picks.] Mostly he talked and told awesome stories that I guess didn't really finish off. One began, 'Now I will tell you a ghost joke.' 'The dentist was having fun pulling out my molars.' 'I got married; I forgot it was WWII!' 'I went to training; I forgot I was married!' Then he auctioned off the men in his band to the ladies in the audience. 'You want the fat one? The one wearing the glasses? My nephew?'"
