Christmas Taco Finale
We had our very last show of our Home for the Holidays tour last night in South Carolina. Thanks to all who came out to see the show. I hope we helped get you in the holiday spirit!
Last night we did something that was a first for us. For some reason we were all STARVING when we got on the bus around 11pm, so we told our driver to look for something that was open so we could stop and get some food.
It’s weird, because we never usually eat after a show. We all just brush our teeth and go straight to bed for a good night’s sleep. (detect sarcasm)
Mike our bus driver slows down…
Taco Bell. Drive thru open till 2am! Anderson, SC.
Doesn’t that look good even now…
anyway, we were a little nervous because our bus cannot fit through the drive thru, so we walked up to the window to order on foot. This usually doesn’t work. There is some kind of worldwide Taco Bell rule that you HAVE to be in a CAR to order in the drive thru. Redonk. We knew this would be a problem, depending on how “by the book” this location was.
We pleaded with the girl at the window, actually Denise did. Told her we were a hungry Christian singing group. Would she like a CD? Could we sing her a song? NOPE. Not having any of it.
“Let me call my manager.” wait two minutes. “She said no.”
Defeated, we walked back to the bus, heads hung low.
Suddenly, I had an idea.
“Denise, why don’t you offer the girl 20 bucks to borrow HER car and drive it thru the drive thru to order?” said Shelley.
“OK Shelley, you are the boss, so I will do it “, said Denise.
“Chris August, you go with Denise, to protect her.” said Shelley.
So the girl took the twenty bucks, handed Denise her keys, and thirty minutes later we all enjoyed a huge feast. (We ordered a lot, so it took a long time to cook it all. 83 dollars worth. That’s a lot of food at Taco Bell.)
Denise smelled a little like cigarettes after she got out of the car, but she really took one for the team. So we didn’t shun her.
Special thanks to Walt and Chris for accompanying Denise on her mission.
