"She was my favorite!"
Oh man, oh man. Barry was in the hospital Thursday, Friday and Saturday, so this weekend was my first weekend in Santa Monica without Barry, Sue and Grandpa around. I was really nervous. I also decided to try the 8 to 10 spot which meant I had to wait from 3:30 to 8 to perform.
I'm happy to report it went suuuuper well! So many people came up to compliment me. At the last show this one kid yelled to his parents, "She was my favorite!" That was by far the highlight of my street performing career. This pre-teen boy gave me a flower. (He and his family watched the show at least 3-4 times.)
I made just a little below my record ($140 and change). I think I got a record number of 5s and 10s though.
