November 30, 2022 was the ILEA Holiday Party. ILEA is the International Live Event Association. It was an ugly sweater theme, but I hope my sweater wasn’t considered ugly….
I told people I didn’t know we were allowed to wear pants!
I saw a few folks that I had met in the past and made some new friends. I was chatting with some folks when a woman came over and introduced herself to me. She told me I looked like I was alone (which I was) and that there was a vibrant energy about me. I’m going to have to do something about that!
She was a delight and we had a nice time getting to know each other and some of her friends. When I first arrived, I hammed it up with someone you might know.
I followed that up the next day, December 1, 2022 with a volunteer shift at Cleveland Public Theater. I thought I looked pretty good, so I did a little mall walking and then had a beer while I did some work and emailing stuff (sorry if I am being too technical….),
These two days are the beginning of quite a few Kandi days. Be careful what you wish for out there. I am NOT complaining, but Kandi is now a business woman and as such, she is having to get out a lot. Fun, of course, but when her alter ego goes out, it’s about 5 minutes of prep. Her…..well, you know, she’s a lot of work!
The shift at CPT was uneventful with one exception. I was scanning tickets when a mother and her two children came up. I chatted with Mom as I scanned and the little boy kept saying “that sounds like a man”. Mom apologized, but I told her this is how we all learn. Didn’t bother me a bit, I do sound like a man. Now if that had come from an adult, maybe a different story. As the great philosopher, Popeye, once said “I am what I am”.
What could be next……
