I am doing a little side project in Texas right now and it is reminding me of being down in Austin for SXSW a few years ago. When we were at the airport trying to fly home, they canceled our flight. We ( thank God my manager and publicist were with me ) They did not have another flight out for 3 days. SO . . we had to rent a car and drive to Houston to get home. We drove all night . . stopped at some of the craziest places in the middle of no where along the way. It was some of the most desolate driving I have ever done. And when you did see another driver or person, they just seemed “off” . . like there was something else going on and everyone knew it but us. Totally wacked. One of the funniest things I remember is that every single gas station had all the ingredients to make salsa in the cooler: tomatoes, onions, and cilantro. They didn’t always have other stuff, like WATER or seemingly obvious items . . but they def covered the salsa.
I will never forget that trip - !!! ever.
