THE BEST THINGS IN LIFE HAPPEN UNEXPECTEDLY

And this, kids, is how I met Red Hot Chili Peppers:

A month ago I was walking home from my work-related meeting. On my way I decided to walk past a hotel in which, as I saw from social media a day before, stayed legendary Red Hot Chili Peppers. I was simply walking, listening to By The Way in my earphones, I didn’t have any make-up on my face, I even had a run in my tights! I had no piece of paper or a pen with me to ask for an autograph. As I reached the hotel I noticed three big black cars near it, as well as a trio waiting for RHCP. I without any hesitation asked one guy if he has an extra paper to share with me and another if he can owe me a pen. Several minutes later I understood that it was a right decision to pass this place by, as Chad Smith – the drummer – went outside. He was extremely friendly and said that he likes my Gustav Klimt IPhone case. I was just standing there completely shocked 😀 Like, I was simply going home, and here is a guy from RHCP and he even speaks to me, like how can it be possible?!
So, my big evening plans – to go home, take a bath, do makeup, properly dress up, have a dinner, and slowly go downtown to meet my friends, and, most important, to buy a ticket to the show (due to several circumstances I was waiting for the last day to buy it) – were ruined. But, wait for it, it was legendary!
