January, 1993.....Zyon was about a week old when our friends, Faith No More swaggered into Phoenix's Club Rio for a show. This was an event we couldn't miss! We were solid friends and their new record was taking over the world like a virus..swiftly encompassing every crack on the face of the Earth. FNM infection was spreading and it eventually breezed through our front door!

I got on the phone and lined up passes. Now, what to do about Zyon? I couldn't leave him home without us.....he was so fresh! Max and I came up with the idea to call our trusted limo driver, George from Lebanon, and hire his car to be our home for the night! We could tuck Roxane in there to watch Z-MONEY and we could rock out!! The limo could park in the backstage area and all would be great! Roxanne was 10 years old and would be fine with George. Max's sister, Kira, loved FNM, so we swooped up a ticket and pass for her too and she could accompany Roxy, and also watch Z.

We cruised in all happy and excited to see the guys. Limo parked at the back and Max and me inside raging! After the show was over, we ripped it up a bit in the dressing room and Max was like "Let's go party at our house! I have plenty of booze!" After much convincing that we were ready to bash, Mike and Billie said they would cruise up.

We had given the guys our address, but they went to the wrong house. After all it was after 2:00am and dark out. They spooked the neighbor's, I guess, because someone called the police and said there were burglars in the yard!! Dana went outside and found Mike and Billie wandering down the street, of course no one knew the police were on their way!

I was in bed with Zyon, exhausted from going out so recently after giving birth. Dana was in charge as Max was rambling around still searching for nonexistent party favors. Mike, Billie and Dana were outside when the red lights blared around the corner, siren screeching. The cops went up to the guys and started questioning them. Dana was adamant that they were rockers looking for fun and not cat burglars, about to pile drive a neighborhood. "Oh yeah, sing something.." one of the officers said to Mike. This left Mike a bit surprised as you can see by his expression.

Max, in his delirium, managed to snap some photos, as Dana told him to grab the camera and Kodak the moment. He couldn't find alcohol, but thankfully he found the camera and was able to save this moment for all, my Students!

After much discussion, the police believed them and drove off in search of real crime! Mike and Billie called a cab and headed to their hotel, all dreams of a party quite squashed... Me?? I woke up the next morning and laughed my ass off after hearing the story! Max had a hangover and Dana had a big smile!!! And Z??? He was just growing...

Class dismissed....
