It was an interesting weekend to say the least. Saturday I had to run back and forth between my regular job and the one at the Market. It was nothing short of a miracle that I was able to pull it off. The day flew by too because I stayed so busy.
Most people would agree that Wadmalaw Island is not a good place to drop off dead bodies. We are a small community and anything out of the ordinary is usually noted by the local residents. Obviously, someone didn’t get the memo because Saturday they found the remains of a missing person less than two miles from where I live. We have recently been seeing lots of police out in our area but we didn’t know why until Saturday. All the facts aren’t in yet but there are rumors of this being a drug related killing. Scary stuff.
So Saturday night I went with my oldest son to the Zac Brown Band (ZBB) concert. He is a country singer with recent hits like “Chicken Fried” and “Toes”. Despite the threatening weather and the fact that the concert was at an outside stadium we managed to have a good time. The Family Circle Cup Stadium ended up being packed but a lot of people didn’t get there until late. We however got there early and were among the first people who were let in the gate. After drying off the seats with my jacket, we settled in for a little people watching before the concert.
I have a few comments about the concert:
A concert is not the place to practice your whistling especially if you aren’t good at it. And it is not the place to test the volume on your I-pod speakers. When the music starts getting distorted and hurting the eardrums of everyone around you, it is too loud. Take my word for it.
Here is a little fashion tip for those 70 year old groupies out there. That slinky lace slip top and ragged jean (micro) mini-skirt look that you used to wear when you were 16…..It might be time to give it up. No one wants to see a silver haired Grandma with a shirt split down to the naval and a dress so short you flash everyone when you walk. Well except maybe Grandpa. Sorry I think I just threw up in my mouth imaging my grandma dressed like that.
Apparently there were some people at the concert that were really thirsty. The lines weren’t too bad at first but by the time the concert started, you had to wait 30 to 45 minutes in line just to get a drink.
Having to wait 30 minutes to Pee after waiting 45 minutes for a drink…..Priceless.
But the good news is by the time you made it out of the bathroom your drink was gone and you could get right back in the drink line.
Texting the guy right beside you should be illegal.
Here is part of the conversation that went on between the guy beside me and the guy behind him:
Hey Bro, did you get the text I sent you today?
No I didn’t
Ok Bro, I will send it again now but it is bad so don’t let anyone else see it.
Am I missing something with this texting thing? They were one foot apart. Why send a text?
I Have a message for the two girls that were in front of us with their boyfriends.
Girl #1. Pulling your boyfriend out of his tree stand to take you to a concert was a bad idea. He wasn’t watching the concert and was mad about being there. (Did you notice how he stared at the ground the entire time? That was a hint #1. Clue #2 was the fact that he still had on his hunting clothes) If you want to get his attention in the future, try getting a camo outfit and put on a little deer scent. That should do the trick.
Girl #2. That was a hot little dance that you were doing but your boyfriend didn’t have the view that we did. Perhaps it would be better to do that one in the privacy of your own home where you can use your dance pole. I’m not sure what music you were dancing to but it wasn’t the stuff we were listening to. Or should I say tried to listen to.
Why do people go to a concert and then talk the entire time? That’s what the people behind us did. And they weren’t even talking about the concert. It would have been cheaper to buy the CD, sit at home where it was dry and then you could talk without bothering anyone. And then you wouldn’t have spent $150.00 on cheap beer. (I counted)
What happened to going to a concert to SEE and Hear the concert? I’m just saying,
Have a great Monday,
