How’s My Tour Going?

  I think you have the wrong idea about this "tour" thing. You are thinking of a band, like Journey. I go on the road two or three nights a week, usually. On most Thursday and Friday mornings I smush my high fashion wear and little jokes into a big wheelie  suitcase, and grab about fifty pounds of carry on bags containing office supplies, and a spare pair of underwear, and head to the...
