My husband's plan to retire from our band is not proceeding to his liking. The drummer with whom we replaced him has left already and now we're auditioning again.
We had four auditions scheduled last Sunday; only two of the guys showed up. Another potential auditionee cancelled because he got the opportunity to go on tour with a band...in China.
Last night we had one more audition and it actually went pretty well. The guy brought his mom with him, but that was mostly because they lived fairly far away and she wanted to go to the casino afterward.
There are two drawbacks with this guy: he doesn't have a computer and he doesn't have a cell phone. Well, three drawbacks if you count the fact that he lives in Topeka. And I'm trying to ignore the fact that he resembles a psycho ex-boyfriend of mine.
There is always at least one guy in the band at any given time who doesn't check his e-mail regularly. This drives me crazy because I am online at all times with every one of my e-mail accounts open simultaneously. I'm aware that I'm at the extreme end of the connectedness spectrum, but still...
So it looks like we're going to see how things go with the guy from last night. It's too bad he won't be able to use our shared Google Calendar to mark his availability, but I suppose we can work around that. I'm sure my husband is keeping his fingers crossed.
