Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea: “More Rock Star Glamour” – 2023


More rock star glamour: Walked to Target to get nail clippers and nose hair trimmer. Employees were right on me asking for selfies and telling me they love me. Two minutes later I get hit with a major urge to take a shit. They tell me, “Bathroom is downstairs.” I go there but ten people in line, I’m about to soil my trousers. I go to employees and plead; “Please can I use employee’s bathroom?” They say, “No, employees only.” I run across the street to some cafe and ask to use bathroom (on the way there a guy waiting outside tells me I’m an asshole for not stopping to take a selfie with him) the cafe lady threatens to call security on me for politely asking for bathroom. I made it by the skin of my teeth to a restaurant a few blocks away. Back to hotel to practice trumpet.
