Last night’s Drum Truck was an absolute and total blast. Aside from the long and unmoving line at U-haul there were little to no hitches …omitting the constantly blaring horn at Tommy’s Park when it became stuck. It was a while before we found that perfect combination of punches and curses that would stop its wail. There were cops everywhere we went, but never for us. At Longfellow square a squad car pulled up right behind us. I ran to him waving my permit saying “I bet you wanna talk to me. We DO have a permit.” He looked puzzled and said, “What? No, someone got laid out across the street. I’m not here for you.” I said “…oh, well… we have a permit.” He said “Great, have fun.”
