Adapting to festival life isn’t so hard. Our brains have already adjusted to thinking, “Oh, this is our life now. We rush around Seattle Center all day listening to amazing music. I guess we live here now.” But alas, silly brains. That is not the case. For today is the final day of Bumbershoot (queue gentle weeping and cries of “NOOOOO!!!”).
Maybe we should save the weeping for tomorrow morning when it’s back to work and “normal” life, whatever that is. So for now, let’s rejoice and revel in the fact that today boasts another amazing lineup of music! Hurrah!
