We meet different scholars from the Southeast and percentage our enthusiasm for the truth that Hootie and the Blowfish all started their occupation the following at this very spot. We attend writing workshops and panel discussions after which we’re taken to the resort eating place for dinner. i'm sitting with my classmates and some new humans and, after fast perusing the menu, I inform the waiter that i need the shrimp scampi. the folk round me order less complicated fare like meat loaf and poultry and spaghetti with meatballs, yet I persist with my hugely subtle shrimp scampi and stay up for its arrival. after which it arrives and it’s coated in sticky, gloppy orange cheese. this can be an outrage.
