I never walk places alone…. But Saturday night had me feeling brave. I was at the Dodger game with my family and naturally instagraming and tweeting my where abouts, when I got a text from a friend saying she was at the stadium as well and wanted to say “Hi.” I couldn’t pull any of my family members from their glued seats to accompany me to walk over and meet my friend. I thought “I’ll just go by myself, it’ll be a little adventure.” I popped a piece of Trident Layers Wild Strawberry + Tangy Citrus chewing gum in my mouth and dashed up the stairs to the top of the field area, found the nearest stairwell and the next thing you know I was doing the seventh inning stretch with my oldest girlfriend. It felt good to recite “take me out to the ball game” at the top of my lungs, and even better to do it in fond company. It’s in those minutes that you feel connected and full of life. We kissed goodbye and promised to see eachother soon. As I walked back to my seat to meet my family, I was so high on the winning energy of the stadium and on having a moment to be silly alone…. I burst into song singing out loud not caring who could hear or who was witnessing my strut. I pretended to be John Travolta in “Saturday Night Fever” singing “You can tell by the way I use my walk I’m a woman’s man, no time to talk.” I guess you could say I was feeling sassy. I guess you could say it was the gum chewing and living in the moment.
I dare you to do the same, take a path you wouldn’t normally take and see what unfolds. These people here on the subway are living it up “All Night Long.”
