    I was at a concert one time and I got to talking to a woman I was sitting next to. The artist from the stage told me, "If you want to talk, go to the bar." I was totally embarrassed and barely said a word for the rest of the night. I didn't realize I was talking that loud. I got to meet the same artist a few years later at a folk festival and apologized. He forgave me and showed me the chords to one of his songs that I was having trouble with.

    Coming from the San Francisco psychedelic dance hall era I think of a concert as an experience. Sure I may have favorite songs that I want to hear, but I also want the artists to be artists and throw me a curve ball at times. As long as it's good, I don't care.

    You could have shot back, "Play something interesting and I won't have to talk!" :p

    And as soon as there's a problem with a connecting flight, or the aircraft, or an unruly passenger on board....you're late to your destination. ;-)

    I don't recall feeling that way. Sh*t happens, people are late.

    And you didn't tell us so we could shake your hand and buy you beer? I'm hurt. So are Blair and Drew. We're gonna sulk and eat worms now. Fraz might have even come up from the USA too. Other cool GTA folks too.

    I'm crushed. I need therapy. I even told your blue guitar (that I still haven't done a NGD on) that if you came I would take her to visit. You didn't call. You didn't write. You didn't send me flowers.

    The company that I was working for used Delta. When going from Boston to San Francisco, we went through their hub in Atlanta. I said, I've been flying for two hours and I'm no closer to my destination than when I left. Connecting flights? Mostly didn't. I would RUN from gate five thousand to gate zero and watch the plane roll away.

    I paid for a good chunk of my university fees working public facing jobs, and that has given me considerable empathy for the people who have to listen to complaints. If things are running late, I just try to relax and stay cool and not make life any more stressful for me or them.

    Our clinic offers phone visits. I'd be happy to discuss your feelings of abandonment with you.

    Does the therapy involve copious quantities of Canadian whiskey?

    And that's why rock stars and comedians are late. And anyone else who can't get a direct flight

    I'm all about results. If it works for you, I'm okay with it.

    I'll buy the first bottle. This kind of therapy I understand!
