The night came with a few unexpected surprises.
While I was singing, Fermin bought us some raffle tickets. After my set was over, we went to the table of prizes you could enter to win. There were about 8 gift baskets to chose from, and there was one I really wanted- mainly because it looked like a birdcage, with vintage bird ornanaments hanging on it. Inside the cage were several different cute notepads. I put all 4 of my tickets in that one basket and exclaimed to Fermin, "I have a feeling I'm actually gonna win this!" That feeling was so strong, and hopeful, that I posted this photo on Instagram with the caption, "I'm about to win this."
|I'm about to win this!|
I didn't even realize all the things in that basket, until I got home and took everything out of the birdcage! I got:
* a pair of tickets to the Nasher Sculpture Center
*notepads, a notebooks, and a couple of small journals
*fancy pencils with a cute pencil holder bag
*a pair of tickets to some theatre production I've never heard of, but am excited to go to!

At some point in the night, my shoes started feeling a little soggy. I looked down at my shoes as I stood up from my seat and it seemed I had stepped in a cupcake! I had little white cake crumbs all around my feet, and white fluff covering the heel of my shoe. When I tried to wipe the supposed cupcake off of my shoe I realized that my heel had just sort of exploded and the contents of it were spilling out where ever I stepped. It just wasn't just one shoe, by the way-- it was both! And with every step I took, I was getting shorter and leaving a trail of breadcrumbs behind.
Eventually, I noticed a maintenance man with a broom and dust pan sweeping up after me. It was only a matter of time before he realized I was the culprit of all of his extra clean up work.
So I took off my shoes, apologized to the man cleaning my mess up, and put my shoes in a trash bag.
You win some, you lose some.
