So I'm in L.A. this week conducting some business and end up staying at the Motel 6 in Sherman Oaks. The place is crappy and around bedtime I try to switch off the light above the sink in the entryway, and it turns out the switch is broken. I complain to the guy in the front desk and he says he can't do anything but change our room in the morning. I twisted off the frosted plastic cover and it turns out there's no bulb I could unscrew. I'd need to cover that light somehow. "Now if only I had some gaffer's tape and foil", I thought. So I went to Target to buy some foil and masking tape.
On the mile and a half drive I start thinking about this project I was going to shoot in Seattle. It got canceled, I ran out of money before it even began, and started saving to move here. And I thought of Tyler because I had told him about this project.
So I'm at Target in the first floor and I get this sales assistant to take me to where the sleeping masks are, in case my plan fails, and who do I run into?
I was so shocked I forgot how to speak for a second. In fact I was so surprised I forgot to take a selfie with him to prove to my wife that this actually happened. I was in a hurry and we exchanged a few words and I drove back with a huge smile in my face because I took it as a sign that my project will happen some day.
Made my trip, let me tell ya!
