Time for Glasses?

We went on a field trip today to the University of Chicago to hear the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra. It was a great performance geared toward children to help them understand classical music a bit better, important because this is probably the one time a year they get to hear it. So I'm sitting in the audience with my kids, next to this one particularly chatty girl who says just about anything that pops into her head.

At one point in the performance, some additional musicians come out for a certain piece, including a pianist. This guy was an older over-weight gentleman who resembled Richard Attenborough.
The talkative girl next to me excitedly yells out, "Ms. M!!! Is that Bill Clinton????" Then she squints and says disappointedly, "Oh, no, it's not."
Sorry, Bill.
