first impressions

    Drew's here. I told him to meet me under the Christmas tree in the middle of Dundas Square. Just like a movie. And just like a movie, he was there, waiting for me after my show, with a huge bass guitar, a computer, and a tiny carry-on that looked like it fit about two pair of underwear and that's it.  It's amazing how little men can get by on.  


    We went to a diner for a late dinner and the waitress commented on all of Drew's stuff, saying, You sure don't travel light, huh? I thought about my myriad of bags, my huge roller suitcase, and my trunk that could fit Rhode Island inside and thought, You have no idea...

   We got home to an empty apartment, which was nice.  I had two shows worth of filth on me; Drew had only God knows what worth of filth on him...So, we decided to shower.  In this apartment, there has been an unlocked door policy in the bathroom, that way someone could use the toilet, brush their teeth or whatever, while someone else is showering. No big deal, right?

  But the open door policy wasn't exactly what I had in mind when Drew was with me. I'm just saying.

  Well, so we are showering and um, we hear this really loud knock on the door.  I hesitantly say, Uh, someone's in here (duh, they know that--because surprisingly enough the door was locked. Which is why they knocked.).

   Gabi says, I am sorry but there are a few of us and we really need to use the toilet.
   I say, ...Okay...Well, Drew's in here, too. 

   Silence.

    We think they leave...But then we hear one more slight knock.  It's Amos, one of the guys who has recently joined the tour.  He says, The others went downstairs, but well, I didn't and I do really need the toilet...

   I look at Drew, he says, No big deal, Jess, this curtain isn't going anywhere.

   Amos walks in. He uses the toilet. Drew and I are in the shower.  Amos tells Drew how happy he is to meet him, Drew reciprocates.  I try not to laugh because honestly, I never thought Drew would meet one of my friends this way. Ever.

  Fast-forward, Drew finally meets Amos face-to-face. He tells him that it is nice to put a face with the voice. We all laugh.  And that is how Drew met Amos and the toilet and the shower were the scenery.  Only on tour, I think.

Amos is a guy right. Guys can go anywhere! What's his problem! Unless it was number two, in which case Amos is REALLY messed up.

Seriously, I would never go to the bathroom while a couple was in the shower. I mean, jeez dude, take a hint.

I would never do that...but then I don't ever shower, I bathe.

Jessica Latshaw said...

Yes, Amos is a guy. And the funny thing is that the other people went in our friend's apartment downstairs...I guess he really had to go.;-)

Oh, and it wasn't #2

Michele said...

You and Drew were in the shower together!!???? I'm telling....oh, that's right, you already told on yourself :)

Jessica Latshaw said...

yeah, unfortunately, that was a pivotal point of the story...so I had to let the cat out of the bag...

oh, absolutely!

I realize this post was a little TMI, but I had to divulge the whole thing because I think it was so funny...

this reminds me of the time my cousins and I were playing hide and seek in my grandparents house, I wrapped my skinny little ten year old self in the shower curtain and pushed it way over to the side. I was congratulating myself on not being found until my grandfather came in to use the toilet. I could tell it was him by the slow heavy thudding foot steps. Talk about frozen in place. Thank goodness it was only number one. If he would have found me before he left the toilet, I'm not sure which one of us would have been more horrified.
