New Venus LetteR: Adventures of a Lucky girl- hey that's me!
I used to think that I was not a lucky girl but recently I changed my mind. It's like this, anyone who knows me knows that I am bonkers over this band 311. For me they are the best and its exciting to be crazy over something and for me its 311. I managed to make it to a concert on their last tour. I got to meet some of the members. I wrote about it - click here to read it.
Ok, now I am getting to the story. Last December I was on the plane to Los Angeles to get a flight to connect to Australia. When I got on the plane there was a guy sitting in like seat 2F and I was thinking, wow that sure looks like Nick Hexum (from 311) but of course since I was not ( this has since changed) a lucky girl, I couldn't possibly be fortunate enough to be on the same plane with one of my favorite guys. I just went to my seat, crashed for 5 hours and didn't think about it again.
Well once I got to baggage claim I was just staring over there at him thinking nah, its not. Well guess what, it was! The next thing I know he's walking over introducing himself, "Hey I'm Nick Hexum, you were at our Halloween show." AAHHHH! I could believe it. I couldn't say too much because I have a track record for saying the wrong thing (to Puff Daddy, Heidei Klum, Seal, David Hasselhoff, just to name a few) and I was determined not to put my foot in my mouth this time. Well my bags came first and I had to split first, but I managed not to say anything offensive before I left.
I have to give a shout out to Mase from De la Soul for hooking me up.
