Remember that part about how I was going to get to go to Atlanta to see Jonny Lang at the Botanical Gardens and then see my friends, Darla and Jeff?
Crap. Double Crap.
Seems JL's wife decided to HAVE A BABY. How rude.
I found out this morning. I had heard rumors that there was a "family emergency" and shows all around my show were being postponed. I called the Atlanta Botanical Garden and asked the very nice receptionist lady if the show was still on. Her response? "It better be." I then explained what I had heard, and she then spoke to someone in her room. And, then she put me on HOLD.
I knew I was screwed at this point.
She gets back on and says she was just speaking with "Marketing" and that an "announcement" would be made in a couple hours on their website. Yeah, I knew what that meant. I told her that sucked and she agreed, stating that she was the receptionist and would have to speak to person after person today calling in with disappointment like myself . I agreed with her, her day was going to suck worse.
BUT. Oh, the agony. The disappointment. I must have sighed about 486 times today. I have really really really looked forward to this. And, not only is mine postponed, it's flat out canceled. Get your money back. It aint gonna happen.
We originally thought about still going to Atlanta for the weekend, but soon realized we'd end up spending much more money than we needed to, considering we are going on vacation next weekend. As much as we want to see D&J, we will have to plan another trip and coordinate the two. Luckily, Darla is a very understanding and gracious kinda gal.
So, mark this on your calendar: I was sensible today. We're staying home.
Tap. Tap. Tap.
Commence Pity Party.
