Cranks My Tractor

By bringing a cake to the concert, the concert folks give you a couple of special armbands which allow you to meet the singer/cake thrower after the concert and have your picture made with him or get his autograph.  My son was thrilled.

He was there about three hours early and standing in line with his special armband on.  I was close by and communicating with him.

The concert was over at around 11 pm and I was walking around outside waiting for my son to come out.   His sister and friends without the armbands came on out and decided they wanted to go back to the hotel and go to sleep.

This was fine, it was a block away.  I volunteered to stay and wait on my son and his friend who were going to get to meet the cake thrower.   I stuck my head in and the security guard told me that I could not come in without an armband.

However, I was able to see the cake thrower.  He was about 5 and a half feet tall and dressed like a normal college kid.  I asked the security guard, “Is that the guy we drove three hours to see?”  He said, “Yes.”  I said, “He sure seems clean.”   The security guard told me, “He’s had a shower.”

It made sense with all the cakes flying around.

It was cold, but I decided to sit down on a park bench right outside the auditorium.  There was only one way out and I was right in front of it.
