Party Crashers Part Two

My last blog post I told you about my friend and I crashing a conference in Wilmington five years ago. Well, here is part two to this crazy story.

Two weeks ago our band was playing for a big event in Blowing Rock. After the band set up and I was just about to get into the elevator to go upstairs to change into my finery, these two girls came bouncing out of the elevator. The one girl asked me what kind of attire should she wear for this event. We start chatting about cocktail dresses and the Middle Eastern theme of the night. We talked about the belly dancers that would be performing and this and that.

All of a sudden this girl gets a crazed look in her eye. She stops and looks at me and says “You look so familiar, where do I know you from?”

Since she had very cool blond spiky hair I said “Are you a hair dresser?” “Did I come to your salon?” She slowly said “Nooooo” She looked at me again and said “Oh my God, I know, were you in Wilmington about five years ago?” I said “Yes.” She said “I remember you from our teachers conference. You and another girl crashed our party.” I totally got into Elaines character from Seinfeld and yelled “GET OUT!”

Of course we stood there reliving the whole episode in Wilmington and how much fun it was.

Can you believe this? Five years later she remembered me. I guess we made a huge impression. She said she had a photo of the group on her desktop and I am in it. That must have been the photo my girlfriend and I shoved our way into. We laughed so hard the joy was coming out in bucket loads.

I immediately called my girlfriend who went on the trip with me and screamed into the phone “You won’t believe this!” It was great, she came to the event that night and reconnected with our buddy from the conference. They too got to relive the craziness of the Wilmington trip.

The night was magical. I sang with a great band, we had two hundred and fifty people show up and this event raised $10,000 for the battered womens shelter in Boone. We’ve been playing this event for years and many of our old friends came out to see us. What a great night.

One big joyous moment after another!
