if you ever want to be popular, walk a puppy through the lobby of a westin hotel at 1 AM on new years eve.
we went to charlotte for widepsread panic on wednesday and sugarhoney came with us. she was the star of the city.
while walking her past the nascar hall of fame, a cop drove by, leaned her full torso out the window, gave a thumbs up, and yelled “that is the best dog ever!”
kevin carried her on the elevator to avoid her scaring people in their fancy clothes. a cop in the lobby saw this and said, “uh oh, is that dog too drunk to walk?”
dozens of people passing by stopped, turned around, and squealed “PUPPY!!!” to each other, asking to pet her. she just wagged her tail, cool as a cucumber.
one kind young man flyyyiiiiiing high on new years spirit on the full elevator grabbed her ears (lovingly), got nose to nose with her and yelled “YOU ARE JUST THE CUTEST LITTLE FUCKER!!!!!!”
the show was excellent, the band sounded great, the setlist was thoughtful, uplifting, and everybody was having a good time…
it was an awesome way to ring in the new year.
best wishes for a healthy and happy 2015 to all!
