Wake 6am. Feed animals. Turn out horses. Pack up show creatures. Do I have time for a yummie duck egg? NO!! You decided that when you hit the 5:45 snooze. 7am wash up, dress & 7:30am head out for shows. Down town county/taste shows at 9, 10, & 11am. Finish with great teacher reviews. Thanks! 12:45 car packed & waiting for check. Ring buzzer 5 times & then ditch running car full of animals in down town alley way & jog around to main entrance cuz county bldg security locked you out of back entrance before getting paid. Ugh. Get buzzed in 5 doors. Ring bell another 5 times. Ugh!! Get check. Run back to car running & blasting with air on to keep them cool. County security has returned with his security friends & wants to see animals so you show him the snakes since he was nice enough to save you VIP parking during the taste hyped security. Ugh!! Back in car & GPS down town gas stations cuz yer on empty. There are "none found". Awesome. Flag a cabbie & he tells you which direction but only off by 2 miles. Barely make it. Gas up @ 1:30. Enter I-94@ Ohio & sit in rush hour taste traffic for 30 minutes on the RAMP. WTF?! Crawl through traffic toward O'Hare show. Exit & detour at 2:45pm to a Jimmy Johns & grab a Club lulu. 3:15 arrive at forest preserve grove #3 on time but no sign of party just a shirtless man reading a book. Wolf down 1/2 club - first meal of the day. 3:30 party crew arrives, set up & start show @ 3:45 behind schedule because guests host & guests arrived late. 5:15pm scan moms drivers license because she forgot her CCD & check book & can't pay you & you cannot send a bill to a forest preserve. WTF?! Who cares yer late! Go! Jump back onto 294 into rush hour traffic. Manage to book 2 shows & return 4 calls while inching along 294. (Still sadly 40 unreturned calls in VM as I singlehandedly boost business for all other chgo animal shows lol.) Ugh! Stop at oasis for fast bathroom & drink because I'm partched. 5:45 pm call next show & let her know that I will be late due to traffic. Speed when I can & pull some zig zag sweet traffic moves. Finally crossed the border! Freshen up my sweaty melting self with some fresh make up while driving side streets. Stage time pending!! Hurry!! Arrive in Portage Indiana for 7pm Festival stage show 10 minutes late. Pull up behind stage, 200+ people patiently waiting. No pressure. (Aghh I shouldn't have stopped to pee!) set up in 5mins & get the wireless mic tapped in. Oh yeah I rock. Get the crowd wriled up & Boom! A great show! 8:30pm I'm done for the day & letting the last of the kid fans get their questions & comments & creature petting done at the table. 8:45pm & I'm heading home. 10pm arrive home & unpack animals. Bring horses in & feed barn animals with a flash light in the dark because we still have no electric in the barn since the fire. Ugh!!!
Get in, let dogs up & clean up their mess since they were inside all day. Ugh!!! Sorry guys! Cuddle with them & rub bellies as I apologize to them for their boring day inside. Check & reroute GPS times for Saturday shows. 11:30 pm eat second half of Club lulu that is now warm & squishy. Slam two waters & have a nice swig of a Cider but thats it because Sat is crazy too. 12am Shower. 12:30am bed cuddling with the Beans.
Is why I can't answer my phone.
