All apologies for cancelling gigs - I'm fully aware of all the bragging that I don't cancel shows under any circumstances. But now I am.
Bingo had a seizure during her 40th birthday party and fell backward on her noggin on the concrete. Sure, it was funny at first. Unfortunately she went into a coma and remains there now five days later. There is no way of knowing when she will come out of it but the doctors say that even when she does, it will be a long recovery process. And somehow another gig at Sally Tomatoes banquet hall or a night in Oxnard didn't seem like reasonable excuses to bail and leave her family to do all the sitting and staring at each other in a hospital room. Maybe I'm getting soft.
I don't know if you are religious people, but if you believe in the power of prayer, stop it right now. Or at least don't tell people. Just go out and laugh. At everything. All the time.
I'll get back to all those places I cancelled eventually. With a notebook full of coma jokes.
I really love all of you idiots. Even when it's an abusive relationship.
