the level of catastrophic didn’t hit me the morning of Sept 11th when I woke up. My palm phone was vibrating something crazy and I saw 13 missed calls from my mom. That’s never a good sign. Already bracing the worst (my dad must be dead) I’ll admit I had to psych myself out with intense silence (weird I was meditating before I knew what it was) for about 40 mins before I had the nerve to turn the phone back on and brace the news. Gander at the phone and I see like 40+ “you guys ok!!?” messages from all these unconnected strangers. I think it was almost 10am. I fell asleep watching Swordfish on pay per view so the 30 sec running jingle (today it’s that friggin “EXTRA! EXTRA!” song every 15 secs 🙄) was on loop forever in my dreams. I had no clue what was happening. I called mom. She explained, and then I turned on tv. Kinda hard to gage the feeling of what it was I was seeing, was it a real time Armageddon occurring? Was this like a tragic forrest fire some californians think to themselves won’t effect their workday? I tried calling my party in the hotel and no one was answering. I decided to call front desk and it was the most chaotic tunnel of noise I ever heard. it was like answering the phone at a football game. They assured me this was a serious tragedy (I can hear people desperately yelling for things offline) so in my mind it was “YOU ARE TRAPPED IN NYC!!!!” so I threw clothes on in 90 secs, pushed elevator and after 3 mins I ran downstairs (I was on 4th floor I think) Yup. Chaos in lobby. I spotted some Roots management/staff/band.....with....luggage!!? wait what’s going on? is this “that tragic”? ME: wait....wait y’all leavin? There’s no show tonight?
THEM: ???!! (think “are you serious”??! mixed w “n%**a what!!?)
ME: well no one called— to....say...pack bags...where y’all goin!!?
ME: (completely baffled)
THEM: dog we gettin the f#^* outta New York!!!!!! @tinafarristours: wait....where were YOU headed?! me: Virgin....Megastore? 🤷🏾‍♂️......hey wait...wait.... Them: 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄 (they was gone)

never occurred to run for the hills, i just thought with the New York City about to shut down, I should cop #TheBlueprint?

Welp, it was nice having the #TFA hashtag before its new meaning came along 😑 #HeGottaGo.
