Boo, Charing and I went to see Garth Brooks this weekend! It was a madhouse downtown with him doing four shows over two days. Our show started at 6:30 and we got downtown at 4 and every restaurant within reasonable walking distance was booked until show time. We ended up walking an unreasonable distance (especially since, you know, Boo just got out of the HOSPITAL) to eat, drink and laugh for two hours prior to the show.
And she did! This is actually the third time in my life I have seen Garth Brooks, and the fact that he hasn't toured in 18 years really allows this fact to show my age. The first time I saw him I was in the 8th grade and everyone who was anyone was going.
I was NOT going.
So I sat in my room and sulked and brooded and looked all together too pitiful for my father to stand. About an hour before show time he opened my bedroom door, stared at me for a long minute, let out a deep breath and said "Put on your shoes. We will go get tickets."
Come to think of it, Lord only knows what he paid to scalp those tickets and take me to the concert of my dreams. Whatever it was, it was WORTH IT.
It was a really great night and an amazing show. Three times seeing the same guy sing the same songs. I hope he tours again so I can make it four.
