"Bartender, I'll make mine a Farmington!"

On Wednesday night, a few of us from IA did a college show at the University of Maine in Farmington. I don't know if you know this, but Farmington, Maine is nothing like Boston, Massachusetts... at all.

The funnest part was walking into the dining hall, in show clothes, and being stared down like we were celebrities. Or aliens. Some people just looked plain frightened of us. It was surreal. It sort of felt like the town was 10 years behind the rest of the world, but the show was actually pretty fun! I guess improv is improv wherever you go... and by "improv" I mean lesbian or dick jokes.

It was an overnight trip, so our motel (yes, motel) was hilariously gross. I'm not sure what exactly was on Kiley's pillow/bed sheets... but it wasn't supposed to be there. It was one of those motels that if you looked out the back window, you just knew someone had been, or was in the process of being, brutally murdered.

Road shows are awesome. So is Walmart, where we bought our booze. And the motel, creepy as it may have been, was a great place to drink 50ish beers and a Vitamin Water bottle filled with scotch - which we served iced thanks to dirty parking lot snow. That drink was appropriately titled a "Farmington".

"Bartender, I'll make mine a Farmington!" Kiley toasted to Norm, who responded with "the drink you need when you don't need another drink."

Ain't that the truth.
