Marty’s photo of the day #1889: Deb, Martyman, and I are heading on a four-day rock and roll road trip. On Saturday, we will be driving eight hours south, to Salt Lake City, to see Cheap Trick, Joan Jett, and Heart. When we told Martyman that we were going to see a concert featuring three members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, he naturally assumed that his favorite band, The New York Dolls, would be part of the show.
When I said to Martyman, “No, the New York Dolls aren’t playing, and they aren’t even in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame,” a pained look came over his face, and he immediately headed for the liquor cabinet.
Since Martyman would easily down the most expensive bottle of booze in the house in a matter of minutes, I had to come up with something to distract him. Finally I said, “How about if I let you do the driving to Salt Lake City? But only if you’re sober.”
That seemed to work. Though now we have a new problem. We don’t leave until Saturday, and Martyman has already assumed his position in the car. He refuses to move!
