As I mentioned previously, Patchie and I attended the Uncle Sam Jam at the National Harbor this year... and saw The Wailers! As in Bob Marley & The Wailers... minus Bob Marley, of course. They were better than good... they were amazing! It was incredible to see all these people swaying and singing "One Love", like we were all interconnected in this one moment.
There were lots of other things going on as well, although The Wailers was definitely the highlight for me! We bought a couple drinks (which were ridiculously strong!) and some food, a couple delicious cupcakes and a ton of water! We escaped into the AC for a while visiting such stores as America! and the Peeps superstore. We watched people try to run on a rotating log thing and climb the protruding appendages of the installation art piece "The Awakening". We also inhaled a ridiculous amount of spray sunscreen. Ew.
And after The Wailers performed, we got to meet some of them! Life = Made.
Have you ever met an idol or someone you really admired? I would love to hear about it! As silly as it is, having your photo taken with someone famous is really intimidating and awesome all at once... I was definitely shaking! haha
