Mr. Belding

Some days everything falls into place and your life just makes sense. Today was one of those days. We are in St. Louis playing a national college booking conference. After our showcase I was sitting down by the booth watching Natalie get mobbed by college kids looking for autographs and rice krispy treats. All of a sudden Miguel appeared from around the corner and said, "I just saw Mr. Belding!!"

I laughed it off assuming he meant he saw some crazy guy walking around that looked like Mr. Belding. After all, he's Chilean, you never know where he's coming from. But when I looked into his eyes, I saw that something had changed in him. Only the real Belding could inspire something like that. I knew he was telling the truth.

So we took off across the giant expo hall... Like an oasis in the middle of the desert, there he was. The man that governed the High School of my youth. Mr freaking Belding. It was awesome.

We got our picture taken with him. It was great.
