I went to the Main Event in Quartzsite yesterday and the noise just about sent me to the looney bin. The Main Event is a very long tent with booths lining multiple rows. The booths contain merchants selling their product. As I was walking by a Scentsy booth (candles, perfumy) the salesman started talking to me, the booth on its left started splashing water with great force on plexy glass. In the booth across from the Scentsy booth was a man with a microphone selling cookware. The people walking by were all talking. Then my phone rang and it was Dwain. It felt like a Calgone commercial. I've been rattled before when there is alot of commotion, but this was the first time I could not think, speak or move. It was a scarry feeling. I hung up the phone and forced myself to move out of the situation. Once I was about 10 feet away, my senses started to return. When I think of it even today, I get tense.

Today I've had a productive day. Completed many chores in the morning and had a relaxful afternoon.


  1. I know what you mean too. Scents and noise are a bad combo, hope you don't have to do that one again!!!! Hope today is a better day!

  2. OMG im so glad to know its not just me.My husband has nearly gotten used to my deer in the headlights look when im overwhelmed.
