Everyone is having a great time; sharing laughs, dancing, stuffing their faces full of Mac and cheese and fried pork sandwiches (yes, that really was on the menu, and yes, it really was amazing).
There’s a child in a blue inflatable unitard performing for hundreds of strangers, completely unfazed by the attention and camera flashes popping off around him.

But, since his entire head is covered with a blue nylon stocking, nobody can be for sure. He may have been crying under that hood, but I did not see little wet circles forming on his fabric face, so I chose to believe he is in his happy place while umpa-lumpa-ing around the LOT’s annual Basharoo held in Denver last night.

You can sit around the fire pit and reminisce with old friends, and there’s value in that, but you can do that anytime. This is a partay with possibilities! It’s not time to stand around and look cute, it’s time to network, make new friends, pass some business cards around, find out what’s coming around the pike and dance with the blue boy.
