GoStar and the Case of the Missing Slippers

GoStar and the Case of the Missing Slippers
Karl Christian Krumpholz
“One night at Unit E, I thought it would be cool to bring in Shygone and Sid Madrid for some collaboration with jazz musicians. It was getting late, probably around 2 or 3 in the morning, and people were starting to leave the jam when an elderly lady from the neighborhood knocked on the door and asked if she could get her slippers back.

“My friend Gregg Ziemba was confused. At first we didn’t want to let her in, as she was quite drunk and it was already late, but she insisted that her slippers were inside and that she needed them. So Gregg let her in. Surprisingly, she reached underneath the stage and pulled out two pink slippers. She said, ‘See, I told you they were there.’ We all looked at each other in disbelief. Gregg said, ‘Oh, yeah! That’s right. She wears those slippers.’”
