last night when i went to see buckethead, he took off his mask. he was trying to figure out some stage directions for himself and he just took it off because, at this point, we know each other in dreamland. his friend (sister?) and a girlfriend were there. his girlfriend left disgusted by something none of us were offended by. i don’t even remember what it was but they were definitely not on good terms. and we continued discussing how the show should go tonight. then he went to another room and shut the door and puked. his sister-friend said, “poor guy. he gets like this when he’s pregnant.” i didn’t want it to be extra awkward when he came back out so i left them alone and said i would see him at the concert.
