Have you ever had one of those times where all of a sudden you snap out of being in the moment and look at a situation and say “What the F** am I doing here?” Like your doing something really stupid or just in a really awkward situation. Well for me, it used to happen a lot, but not in a good way. I would be working on some project at my old job and all of a sudden realize, man this is really stupid or pointless. And we would call that a “WTF moment”.
Well last night I had one of those moments. However, in this case, it wasn’t because I was running around some college campus in a giant Beaver custome. It was actually pretty cool and it made me step back and say “How did I end up in this situation..”
I was cleaning up the bar after a pretty crazy night of slinging bottles. There were about 20 med students from Boston who had came in and ordered a ton Irish Car Bombs and left the place a disaster. When I was just about done one of the owners of Buller (Carlos, my buddy Anibal’s dad) came and sat at the bar with the lead singer from Catupecu Machu (Fernando) and his buddy (a famous Violin player in Argentina, forget his name). Carlos told me to get a bottle of Jack Daniels down from the shelf and 4 glasses.
I ended up sitting at the bar with Carlos, Fernando and the Violinist drinking Jack Daniels on the rocks talking about their stories from the road. When the bottle ran dry at about 4:30 we closed up the bar and I took a cab home laughing to myself, thinking “WTF just happened, and how did I get in that situation?”
It’s amazing where life takes you sometimes.
WTF – What the Fuck
