James and John

We just arrived at the delicious James Hotel in Chicago. It's like a building made of candy. This place reminds me of the Curtis in Denver.

And guess who I saw in the lobby?

Drum roll...

None other than THE John C. Reilly. I'm a huge fan. It was profound, but I won't bore you with the details of my inner experience (though I'm usually so happy to do that). Needless to say, I didn't open my mouth... We all know how I react in these situations.

A few minutes later, I was cramming myself, some dancers and our bags into the elevator. I was face up to the door. As it was closing, John C. Reilly tried to get in, but I just looked him in the eyes as the door closed.

There was literally no room in the elevator for one of my heroes.

I do wonder what he's doing in Chicago though. Maybe he's coming to our show. Stranger things have happened!
