We were attending a 50th wedding anniversary party for our brother-and-sister-in-law. Few people knew it was also my husband Bob’s 80th birthday, so when the hostess carried in a birthday cake, it was a big surprise to everyone, including Bob. Mouth-dropping shock was the response of all the guests when Bob stood up and clapped his hands together above the cake, instantaneously extinguishing every candle. Spontaneous applause erupted in the room. As you can see from the picture I captured, the hostess was possibly more surprised than anyone else. Thankfully she didn’t drop the cake.

That’s it exactly. I think it took her a while to recover.
