|"In the Heights" cast|
Now enter Saturday morning. I wake up to a policeman at my door, songs from "In the Heights" still playing in my head. My little sister came to get me, telling me it had to do with my car. I wracked my brain trying to think what it could be. And to be honest, it was better than I expected, though completely unexpected. The policeman informed me that my car had been tagged during the night. I went out to see a crude word spray painted on my black car. So strange. I felt a little like I should be in New York, not my cozy little Mormon town. It was so strange to have that happen after seeing a play the night before with graffiti on the set and even a character named Graffiti Pete. It was like the play jumped into my reality, in an unkind way.
Luckily, the paint came off fairly well with Goof Off. There are some hints still in the scratches in my car, but it really isn't bad. There are so many worse things that could have happened. I'm grateful it wasn't anything worse and that it was resolved fairly quickly.
