Miles is not a fan

North Carolina has become a key state in the Democratic Primary so last week Hillary Clinton came to Asheville. It happened to be girls night out with some of the girls from work so I told Shelley 'why don't you go and I'll take Miles to see Hillary at the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium. A little guys night out, right? Right! We waited in the mob of people and luckily got through the TSA security still with a baby bottle full of milk. We settled in our perfect front row seats in the balcony and it was a lot of fun until things got going in the auditorium. Everybody is hootin' and hollerin' for Hillary...they are throwing t-shirts and adjectives like nobodies business and then... I think Miles became the loudest person in the room. Yup. He was screaming. So I thought he was hungry so I fed him his bottom. nope! definitely not hungry! So I sadly had to close the door on guys night out. The minute we walked out of the auditorium Miles falls fast asleep. crazy. It was pretty depressing to leave. I mean there were at least a thousand people just standing outside the auditorium because they had closed the doors to a full house. Oh well.
It felt good to do something for Miles that wasn't what I wanted to do.

It might just be me, but maybe the problem was that you "fed him his bottom" and not his bottle?? I would probably cry and then pass out too.

Jk, way to go on attempting the boys night out! They will be here before you know it!
