I’m sure this experience was very unsettling especially in the seconds after it happened while your brain tried to decipher what was actually thrown at you.
“Not anthrax…not cocaine….POWDERED SUGAR!”
That being said, let me explain the lesson at hand and why you’ve got to let something like this roll off your back…and look, I know it’s easy for me to say and hindsight is 20/20 BUT if you had just laughed, you would have endeared yourself even more to your fans! You wouldn’t have looked borderline silly, getting all butt-hurt about confectioner’s sugar (it is softer than granulated) AND your ability to keep your cool in the face of sugar might deter another attack from happening.
Just how much worse could it have been? “Excrement” Adam…excrement.
Someone could have thrown human feces in your face…consequently making you beg for a precious sugar bomb.
I still wince every time I think about Tila Tequila at The Gathering Of The Juggalos. Every. Single. Time.
So chin up, brush yourself off and get back in the game.
