Had a freaking BLAST in CT last night. The boys of Instrument got my birthday off to a rockin’ start. Literally.
I got to spend time with some good friends. Definitely bouncing off of someone - started the fun early. Too bad you had to leave so soon!! We could have had SO MUCH fun and gotten into SO MUCH trouble… Parking lot conversations with special people are always awesome as well. Glad that we connected on so many levels. I don’t know how it happened, but you are definitely my favorite member of the band. And to think, it started with you making me feel like an asshole.
Made a new friend - who would have thought I’d make a friend by making of point of arguing with him? Henry the hippie (not his real name of course), from Coventry, I still think in New England, it GENERALLY boils down to Sox vs Yankees. So fun arguing with you last night, and I look forward to seeing you at the Tiger to resume our fight.
Rolled into the garage at 5AM and made the bad decision to take a 2 hour nap. Really should have stayed up… you would think by now, since it’s a proven fact that I can’t get home from CT before 3AM, that I would have learned that lesson. But no. I am a hurtin’ pup. A very hurtin’ pup.
See - slowly but surely removing the doom and gloom / pity party of the 18th a little bit more every year. I can’t remember the last time I looked forward to my birthday this much.
Again, a huge thanks to Michele, Viz, Ben, Derek, Jonah, Aaron, Gian and Henry. My birthday would not have been the same without you… and the day is just beginning!!!
