Last night was special

After wrapping up another grueling marathon rehearsal we celebrated with a couple of  St. Louis’s finest pizzas and a bottle of sparkling wine.   This would be a short break, though, for we still had a long night ahead of us.  There were T-shirts to be silkscreened and CD’s to be stuffed into digipacks, not to mention all the plaid stage shirts that needed mending.  Jay saw how hard we’d been working and knew we’d need something to get us through the night.   He put aside all those guitars that needed to be tuned, sauntered over to the piano, and began to reveal the long lost 4 part vocal harmony to Tear Stained Eye that cannot be heard on the original recording.

As those 4 angels gathered round and sang, a strange and familiar sadness washed over me.  I realized this was not a 5 part harmony and again I would not have a chance at the microphone.  Suddenly, I was reminded of a news story I once read and was comforted in knowing that I wasn’t alone.

    Dave – We were at the show in Omaha tonight and thought it was phenomenal. Picked up a copy of the new album while we were there.

    One question bothered me all night, though – where were your pearl snaps? I kept thinking about that “Seseme Street” song. You know, the one that goes “One of these things is not like the others. One of these things is not quite the same.”

    Do we need to take up a collection for you or was Omaha just an off night?
