I'm not embarrassed about my band...at ALL.
You know me...If you let me, I'll get carried away and talk to people about my band until their eyes glaze over and they're bored out of their minds. And don't forget one of my favorite inappropriate questions that I ask people: "Wanna feel my port?" (why does that always sound naughty? ....ha ha ha).
I realize that I am in the minority with my extreme openness about my band.
Anywhoozle, I get emails daily from people researching the possibility of getting a band. Today, there was a question via email that I couldn't figure out an answer to because I just could not relate.
So, here's your chance to help a potential bandster out:
Cookie** is interested in getting the band, but is having feelings of embarrassment and can't imagine telling anyone about the fact that she is even researching the band. Cookie also said that getting a band was like admitting that she has a weight problem that she couldn't fix on her own.
So, my questions for you are:
- What were your feelings when you first researched getting the band? Embarrassed? Excited? Scared? Happy? Etc?
- Do you tell people about your band? If you do, how do you tell people?
- Do you only tell certain people?
- Any other advice for Cookie?
Cookie will be reading your responses and comments.
**Not her real name (duh.)
