Friday Night Entertainment

About six months ago, my husband realized Pink Floyd was coming to town.

I think he suspected it was... the second coming. He was that excited and he is not the type of person who emotes like that.

Immediately he asked me, 'Do you want to come?!!!' to which I replied, "Absolutely not. Take the boys..."

So he bought four tickets. Tonight was the night for the concert. Bones has been waffling back and forth, not really being the PF fan my middle son is. (Mr. T is a huge PF fan. He looks so dang conservative and studious, but he was the one who waited to have Ozzy sign his book and he's the one that listens to what I call "pot head music".)

But I knew Bones would have a good time. He loves people. He loves the energy. He loves the experience of ... all that it promised to be. I knew he'd like the laser show and completely get into it, even if he's not a PF fan.

He asked me yesterday, "Mom, why aren't YOU going?" as it to find the perfect excuse to get out of it.

I looked over and said, "Dude. It's a concert. There are crowds. I don't do crowds."

Bones: You used to come to all the UF homecoming games with us...

Me: You glossed over the big two words there, "used to". I don't anymore. I just don't enjoy it. I think I'm... just too tired all the time now and I find fighting crowds and all the noise just very draining.

It's not that I can't do crowds. It's not a phobia. It just has to be something I REALLY want to see and Pink Floyd ain't it.

Besides, work is stressing me out so bad, I'm perpetually exhausted and my brain hurts. I'm starting to turn into a zombaloid again.

So I'm waiting to hear how it went. I did send a txt to my husband saying, 'Any flying pigs?' because someone told me that sometimes there are flying pigs at their concerts and he txt'd back simply, "Wrong Album".

Who knew you had to have a special album to make pigs fly?

... yeah, I think that was probably from the album "Animals"...... love me some Pink Floyd though.... I certainly hope that they had a one-of-a-kind night to enjoy!....

Yes, flying pig was from Animals, but when I saw them back in the 80's during their tour for "A Momentary Lapse of Reason," they had a flying pig.

Just *thinking* about crowds or lines of people makes me exhausted. And add Pink Floyd to the mix? That's my idea of a bad day in purgatory!

I so hate lines of people that I now have my groceries delivered, I deposit checks using my phone, and I hired my neighbor to take things to the Post Office for me!

Don't get me wrong: I still leave the house and get out and about...to do *fun* things. But if I can avoid crowds and lines, I will find a way to do it!

Dark SIde of the Moon Tour. Blossom Music Center between Cleveland and Akron in 1973 (I think).

Been there, done that. Pretty awesome concert for the time. Crap. Now I feel old again.
