Concert




Tonight I am off to see Kenny Chesney! You'd think going to a concert would be something simple. Think again...

I originally bought these tickets for HER birthday so that her and two friends could go. I'm not a big country music fan (except for Kenny), so originally I wasn't going to go. I thought it would be nice for her to spend time with friends instead. The concert sold out I think in the same day. As the concert approached, we saw more tickets on Ebay and talked about me going too. I ended up buying a fourth ticket for myself and paying $100 for it (a lawn seat at that)! I was really looking forward to going getting out of Oblivion and having a good time.

Enter in one breakup and said tickets still in my possession.

Many arguments later it was decided to sell all 4 tickets. Well, a few days after that she called back and offered to buy them from me. Like HELL was someone going in my place. Maybe childish of me, but that's how I felt. After a few more arguments and subsequent cooling off periods me and HER decided to just go together and sell the other two tickets. Mind you, this was on Monday. Yesterday, she calls me to say she's had the flu for the previous two days and didn't think it was a good idea to go.


*insert random unrepeatable expressions of frustration*

Long story short, I was able to sell two of the tickets on Ebay last night! They were e-tickets so I just emailed them to the buyer. The auction sold in less than ten minutes and I got a little more back than I paid for them. After endless searching yesterday I was able to find a friend to go with me to the concert. Just got off the phone with her and everything is set...

Basically, I'm saying these tickets have been a maddening experience and I hope it will all be worth it. I'll try to Flickr some photos during the trip. Kenny here we come, Momma needs a good time! :)

I am glad you kept your ticket.
Enjoy and have a good time.
Not much into country here either,
but getting out sounds great.

Woman,
You are sooo lucky you have joined the "thirty" club. Otherwise, I would raz on you so bad.:) I mean COUNTRY! C'mon I know we love Patsy Cline, so I hope he's good. (I've never listened to his muzak) I can't jest though because the last concert I saw was Harry Connick Jr. in Ft. Wayne w/my mother. (very good) Before that it was Depeche Mode in 2001 in D.C. (still respectable)

Remember when we saw NIN at the Metro? (God, I was LIKE 17 and you were LIKE 16) Wait,...that's almost half of my lifetime ago! Yikes! One of the best shows EVER!!! Even the car wreck was an unforgetable experience. Not that I want that to repeat. Be careful.

After all the drama over the tickets, the universe prevailed as always....because
"ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD.."

Have a wonderful time dear friend.
Chin up.
REMAIN MINDFUL and STAY IN THE PRESENT! This is the way it was meant to be. NO regrets.
As always, love ya lots.
A.G.

BTW I am doing a smidge better, working and using what I already know and yet somehow forgot. (The primary cause of suffering? Forgetfullness of who and what we are.)

I'm glad you kept the tickets.
Why should she keep you from having some fun. You deserve it.
Enjoy it!

Kenny puts on a GREAT concert, we saw him in Tampa. The talent behind his keyboard is Wyatt Beard... my sister has spent many spring breaks visiting Wyatt and family in Nashville. She works with his mom.

Enjoy the show, you'll find it was worth the hassle!

AKH said...

Good for you. I would have kept the ticket as well.

I hope you have a wonderful time. I'm not a huge country music fan, but there are some songs that I enjoy. I have to admit, I can't pass up a good Dolly Parton song. :)

I can't wait to hear all about it. Where the heck is Noblesville, IN anyway?

Hey Toots! Have a great time. I'm sure it all worked for what's best.

Notice you've been spammed...time to put in the verification window.

Enjoy the concert. I saw Kenny a few years ago when he was a nobody and he put on a great show even then.

Good for you! Tell all, when you can.

F spammers.

SassyFemme said...

Geez louise, you've gotten spam crap for sure!

Glad you kept the ticket and went to the concert. Hope you had a blast! I love Kenny Chesney, and almost all country music. Never did until I'd been in TX awhile. I think it just grew on me!
