While Taylor Hicks was off this past week, I thought about doing a funny, "Where's Taylor?" post. But when I sat down to write it, it felt intrusive, even though I was planning to take a humorous look at the possibilities. Frankly, I didn't want to think too much (or encourage other fans to think too much) about where he might be.
Can you imagine living the way he does? He seems to work ALL the time. Disappearing for a week here and there must be what keeps him sane. I actually get a kick of it when he's able to get away undetected.
It reminds me of the time I watched Taylor walk unnoticed past a crowd of fans who were waiting outside a theater to see his show. He had his hat pulled low and his head down. I saw him approach, walk past me and pull the door open.
I waited until he was almost inside, pointed at his back and said to my companions, "THAT was Taylor." He must have heard me, because he turned around and laughed, as the door closed behind him.
I know other fans have similar stories, moments when they saw him somewhere and simply left him alone. Good for you, guys! (And, you're welcome, Taylor.)
Anyway, I have no idea where Taylor was this past week and I don't really care. He may not have been on vacation at all for all we know. But assuming he was, let's listen to one of his early original tunes to celebrate a bit of R&R. (BTW, "Limin," according to the Urban Dictionary, means, "hanging out or chillin"):
