Hi. I’m Quattro Daly, I’m 13 years old, and live in the mean streets of Ballard with my Mom, my Dad, and my little sister and brother. My family and I are doing something big. Really big. Huge. Enormous. Gargantuan. Awesome. We are going through all of our stuff, getting rid of the crap, putting our irreplaceable things in storage, selling our car, and getting an RV. I know what you’re thinking. “Why the heck would your crazy family of five want to do something like this?!” Well, my Dad is Eddie Spaghetti, one quarter of the greatest rock ‘n roll band in the world, The Supersuckers, which means he tours all the time. Which means we barely get to see him, which sucks. Frowny face. So, we decided to pack up all of our crap, and go on tour with him for, what we are shooting for, a whole year. Wherever his shows are, we go. Sounds pretty simple, right? Well get this. My sister, Elvis, is four years old, and my brother, Zeke, is one and a half. That makes things a little trickier. I’m hoping I don’t end up sharing a bed with one of the littles. Oh, god. No sleep for a whole year. That’s my worst nightmare. Without sleeping… Anyway, when I was hearing about this, I thought it would be pretty cool. Then I thought, “Oh, wait! What about school?” Well, turns out I’m going to be home schooled for 8th grade. Weird. Then I was like, “So I’m not gonna see my friends for a year?” And I got- “We’ll visit Ballard sometimes for sure, and after our journey we will come back, unless we find some awesome place that we love.” I’m kinda hoping we don’t find somewhere too awesome just yet. I also currently don’t have a cell phone because mine broke, so that needs to change ASAP. I can’t leave my friends for a whole year without a phone. That’s crazy.
Back to the RV. Our original plan was to keep our car and get a trailer instead of an RV. Then we went to look at trailers and totally changed our minds. We looked at a few trailers, and they were all WAY too small. Then we looked in an RV and our heads almost exploded. Two tv’s, a giant bed, pull-out couch, squishy chair, and it has two two-person chairs across from each other with a table in between, and the table can go down level with the seats of the chairs, and turns into a bed. AWESOME! That’s when we decided we wanted an RV instead. It also has a nice little kitchen. I think it’s going to be hard going through all of my stuff because I have some pretty cool things that I would want to have with me all year, but I’m gonna end up having to put in storage. For example, I have two guitars- a Reverend Flying V, and an EVH striped guitar. I have to pick one. What do I do? One’s going with me in the trailer, the others going into storage. Stressful. I still have plenty of time to think about it though which is good. We also have two cats and two dogs, and we are gonna have to get rid of the cats for the year which is kinda sad. We are taking the dogs, though! That will be fun. The dogs will have tons of fun in the RV. Well, I’m kinda running out of words here, so I guess that means i should rap it up. Don’t forget to listen to our podcast called The Spaghetti Family Podcast on iTunes! Also my Dad’s new record came out a while ago so pick one of those up too at supersuckers.com! Alright, good talk. Thanks so much for reading. If you read.
