[Fiction Practice] Live versus Studio

red11ned: Computer froze out of nowhere.
SamSt0rm: no worries jane. i was just about to call you but i know you still have a sore throat goin
red11ned: It’s clearing up. I must’ve caught it at the show last week.
SamSt0rm: thats good to here! they really werent that grate huh?
red11ned: It’s too bad. They’ve been great every other time I’ve seen them. They just seemed tired. I’d probably see them again…
SamSt0rm: really?

red11ned: Yeah, I know you stepped out after three songs for a while.
SamSt0rm: i saw enough of them. at least i met someone cool out there. weve been chatting a lot on messe.
red11ned: Sorry to hear, but cool it worked out for you in some way. I didn’t get to ask you after the show what you didn’t like about them.
SamSt0rm: they werent as good as there studio albums. the engineers covered up a lot of sins.
red11ned: Usually, they’ve been able to power through that with a good live performance. They’re usually a four-star band, but this was definitely a three.
SamSt0rm: maybe a 3. i now you like em a lot so i might see em again if they opened for another band on a friday or saturday. monday shows are rough!
red11ned: Yeah, I was good up until Thursday evening. Even after scheduling time off Tuesday morning to sleep in. At least it’s just this sore throat and nothing worse like whatever Olivia got.
SamSt0rm: yeah. she had to take off work on wednesday.
red11ned: Ouch.
SamSt0rm: i stopped by after work to bring some soup. she puked everywhere in her spare bathroom. that took a while to clena.
red11ned: You should’ve called. I would have stopped over to help.
SamSt0rm: nah. its all good. i didnt want you to push yourself and get sicker. then id have to clean your place too. besides her place is on my drive hoem.
red11ned: Thanks. You held up really well.
SamSt0rm: i was out back through most of the set. we could actually still here em from where we were at. we had a lot of fun but we werent focused on the music. you too probably got up too close.
red11ned: I bet. No one was really coughing or sneezing around us or anything like that.
SamSt0rm: dunno. brb.
SamSt0rm: back. phone.
red11ned: So we were talking about A+ last week. I decided to order it online.
SamSt0rm: really? was it a lot of work?
red11ned: A little bit. THere’s this big online auction website. Their money payment system is a little tricky. I bought a few CDs from this seller out in New Alexandria to make the shipping worthwhile.
SamSt0rm: if it works let me know. ive had some things ive been wanting to add to my collection for a while.
red11ned: Sure. Hey, I’ve gotta go. I’m coughing a bit more than before.
SamSt0rm: alriht. take care and rest up this weekend. ok?
red11ned: Take it easy, too, Sam.

My big goal is writing. My most important goal is writing "The Story." All other goals should work toward that central goal. My proudest moment is the most recent time I overcame some fear, which should have been today. I'm a better zombie than I was yesterday. I'm not better than you and you're not better than me. Let's strive to be better every day.
