Moving Week – UHaul Adventures
It was that time of the year again. The hustle and bustle of daily life suddenly transformed into a mad dash of stuffing everything in oh-too-full boxes.
I woke up bright and early on moving day to pick up a reserved cargo van. Unfortunately, my promiscuous van went out on town with another fellow.
The customer service representatives panicked. They were out of everything! Quick strokes on keyboards and a series of phone calls solved nothing. Just when all hope was lost, a lady strolled in to return her UHaul.
I signed the paperwork and started to head out the door. Another lady in a nearby isle stopped me. She had artwork on display and needed to take them down by the end of the day. She asked if I could help transport those pieces, since there were no vehicles left.
“Why not,” I thought, “Time for an adventure!”
This was how I met Camila, an artist who created large mix-media murals. Her paintings had a very raw emotion feel with its thick layers of dollopy paint. We packed up her works and drove to her apartment.
We had afternoon orange juice time.
It was fun.
