Indulge me one more Dave Matthews related post as tonight I had the thrill of seeing him live at the Ed Sullivan Theater. Yep, Gary and I not only went to the Late Show taping, thanks to a very special old friend, but got in for rehearsal and watched the band practice up close and personal.
Two Daves! What could be better?
Funny the way it is that one day someone is your assistant and you have them doing all sorts of ridiculous things like filling hundreds of little boxes with chocolate and tying ribbons on them, yelling at fed ex and making sure that the messenger has the right address; and then one day 12 years later they get you into the Late Show the night that Dave Matthews is on.
(or even funnier that I could think that last run on sentence was grammatically correct)
I am so proud of how far she has come in her career. And how effortless she makes her job look. She is one of the most entertaining people I have ever known, with a sense of humor that still takes me by surprise. You never quite know what will come out of that crazy mind. She was only a year or two older than my daughter is now when she came to work for us, and was surely the most over-qualified person to ever fill that position. It was a real joy to work with her.
People drift in and out of your life all the time. And if your lucky, they drift right back in and surprise you with how much you truly missed them.
Thanks SB, for a great time and a real thrill. I am so happy to have you back again.
Oh, and I am pretty sure Dave Matthews wanted to meet me, tell him I am sorry we had to rush out.
