On todays date in 1993, Duran Duran played in Montevideo, Uruguay. Not a country I hear about them hitting on tour very often, I must say.
And since I’m a little bored this morning….I will share a scenario here that was posted on our FB page by Miss Amanda over the weekend. If you care to reply (and you should), please send us a comment!
You are stuck in an elevator with a rock star. Who would you want it to be??
The way I see this, there are two ways to answer this question. Either you go for the knee jerk answer, in which you don’t even consider the circumstances and you say the first person to pop into your head. I’ll bet that’s how most people would answer, and I think that’s great. Then there’s me. Do I actually think about what fun this could be? No. Of course not. The very first thing I think of in this delightful fantasy situation is my anxiety. I’m not fond of elevators. Too closed in, and the thought of being pulled up and lowered by cables kind of bothers me a bit. Don’t get me wrong – I use them and everything, but I try not to think about it much. So the idea of being stuck in one is not at all amusing, and no, I really don’t care who it is beside me at the time (I just pray the elevator is not full). I can just imagine getting onto an elevator only to find a band member standing there – or being in one only to have the doors open with one of them about to enter. Awkward. I mean, it would probably be the ONE time I’m wearing a DD t-shirt, or carrying one of my VIP bags or something. And then to end up stuck?!? I can just see it – I’d roll my eyes, shake my head and mumble something about it being my luck. I’ll bet many of you would consider it good luck though. Not me. I’d likely call those minutes among the most awkward of my life. What would I say? Probably nothing at first. I’d be standing there thinking about what to say. LOL Better sound smart, Rhonda!! You can only stand there quiet for so long though before acknowledging the situation, right?? So the question comes down to who it is beside me in that elevator. Who would I not mind being stuck with? Who would I most want to speak with?
Let’s just go with the knee jerk here and say Nick Rhodes. Yeah, I know you thought I was going to say Dom. 😉
