My band played last night, and we had a fantastic time. We only had around 10 people in the audience, as it was sweltering hot, and the back patio was full (but too far away for them to hear us).
Still, it gave us the freedom to crack jokes and try new techniques in some of the songs. We screwed up a few things that we usually have down pat, and we succeeded in a few points that we often fail.
After the show, I stayed around and had a couple of drinks with friends that saw the show. One friend’s boyfriend is threatened by my friendship with her. Unfortunately, last night he got pretty douche-y. Telling me that he knows what I’m up to, and read me the first time we met. What that means. I think he thinks I’m trying to sleep with his girlfriend, which is not at all the case. It was really frustrating because I’m trying to befriend him in the hope that he’ll see what’s actually happening: that we could potentially have a serious friendship, the kind that I only have with 3 other people in this world. He wouldn’t back up his accusations, or elaborate on them. I told him that was a “dick move” to pull that line and not say what he was referring to. Why can't many (men especially) people understand platonic cross-gender friends???
I value my friendships very highly, and really hope that he doesn’t fuck it up for us.
I got home at 3:30 this morning, and was up at 7am for work. My eyes are red, and I’m off to find some Red Bull. Have a good weekend!
