This past weekend I had a show in Loveland, Colorado. And it ended up being a comedy of errors. It started off with me breaking something during set up (nothing new there though). My vendor neighbors laughed with me and counted the times I dropped, knocked over or broke something. (We eventually stopped counting, I'm kind of a hot mess in general but especially at shows and working in limited time frames). We had to be out of the building by 4pm, so unloaded all I could, set up my furniture and walls and left a pile of goods to put out and style the next day.
So I set off back to Denver for the night. Normally it's a one hour drive, but the a winter storm cluster decided to follow me down the 25. Everyone was driving super cautiously due to icy roads and blinding snow. But at one point it got ridiculous. I wasn't even registering zero on the odometer, and we stayed that way for over an hour. And on top of everything else I REALLY had to pee! I started a live video on instagram to show people how slow I was going, then realized how boring a movie of stopped cars in a snowstorm was, and when people started viewing I was like, ABORT MISSION!!! (I'll stick to my pre-filmed videos thank you very much). I'm terrified of live video. You might say something stupid and never be able to take it back! Where's the delete button!
Anyway, that was my thursday adventure. I eventually made it to a restroom and got a slice of the world's best Pizza (Marco's at Northfield mall. They serve it with honey and it is out of this world!) I'd rather go there on a date night than any fancy restaurant. Plus it's right next to a movie theater. Dinner and a movie? Yes please.
So my 1 hour trip home turned into 3 hours! Like this blog post... better start a new one.
