The Real Thursday
I had a blast! I started a new job Thursday! I had to walk a bit more than I wanted in order to get my uniform but I got over it. I reached the garage I was placed in and saw the manager. Of course someone has to show me the ropes so he sends me to a guy, who stuck me with a guy who sat me with another guy. This guy was a tall Jamaican. He had immediate attitude. He wanted nothing to do with me. Mind you, everyone so far was Hispanic, and no one wanted to speak English all day. Dude delivered one car with me so I could see where the hotel is. I didn't realize that the hotels where blocks away! People bring their cars to the garage and we take it to the hotel's for them when they are ready. O. My.G. I'm talking, four blocks back. Tired.com. As soon as we get back to the garage he dumped me on a guy on the 5th floor. The only American born guy. I guess I will brush up on my Spanish. lol Harrold was cool. He complained about the separation all day. I understood his annoyance.
As soon as I clocked out I headed to the shelter to shower and go to Sugar Bar. My feet were on fire! My legs throbbed all the way to the shower. The new shoes were not kind. The toe area has next to nothing by way of cushion so what do I do? I called a cab! I have only $80 left to my name but I couldn't walk. I decided it was worth it and would yield a benefit somehow. I was supposed to hang out Janissa and a friend from Atlanta. Right before I got there I got the text. He won't make it. Oh WELL! Just as I arrived, Janissa is signing in for out table upstairs. I was so wedgetastic but I couldn't feel my second and fourth toe. :-/ Anyway!
We sat at the bar and chatted it up As the open mic began we talked about what we would sing. I wanted to do the jazz standard "All of me" and Janissa picked "Feel the fire ". I was called up second. As I came down to hallway to the area where the stage is I see very big hair! When I got to the opening of the doorway I hear "BURGANDY"! I looked and I saw a very familiar smile. It was Ms. Kathy from the Apollo Theater! How awesome! She rocked out as I sung and when I got off the stage I couldn't help but smile. The room was awesome as usual! Ms. Kathy was shocked to learn that I moved to NY. She asked if I wanted to go back on the Apollo and you know me. I'm like, heck yeah! We ended up picking a date. OCTOBER 1, 2014 I will be back on the Apollo Theater stage! BOOYAAAAH! I limped back to the shelter a happy camper.
