I thought that I could go to Cleveland by myself for my birthday weekend. Technically, I have a driver’s license and a van. (Fooled you State of Ohio – I’m a terrible driver.) There was enough time in the day to do the things that I was traveling to Cleveland to do. I even wore my favorite Princess Leia shirt.
On the way to Cleveland, I stopped at a beach to do an interview with a band. Note to self: Always do interviews from the beach.
After leaving the beach, nothing went the way I planned at all.
Although, I would like to say that I’m a chick and I can do what I want – there’s that voice that says it’s not always safe. I thought I would walk a few blocks to see the Cleveland subway. They open it up once in awhile for public viewing.
The truth is that the voice was saying “Don’t go down there. Look at that group of guys. ” It’s not that I think they will attack me or rob me. But they could. A single woman walking alone is a target.
So I went to eat instead. The food was the only good thing about this trip. Thank goodness for pulled pork sliders.
I was supposed to go to a SoFar Sounds show. I applied at least a month ago to get tickets. It’s pretty hush-hush. They are so secretive about where it is and who is playing.
My GPS is a liar and gives me wrong directions on a regular basis. Another downside to being alone. She also tries to get me to drive over bridges. I am terrified of bridges. Well, by the time I escaped one bridge, I was pretty sure that I was having a panic attack or I have asthma. Possibly both. I felt like a wookie was sitting on my chest. I love wookies but not when they are suffocating me.
So I drove home instead of going to the show that is happening right now. My Han Solo birthday weekend was kind of creepy and asthmatic.
Sorry SoFar Sounds. I really wanted to come but I had to get that wookie off of my chest.
