Oct 18th

If you know me at all, you know I love music. All different genres of music. I have all sorts of mix tapes from the 80s, hey, you never know, cassette tapes might come back. I did not, however, save the mixed tapes of my Suzuki piano songs, sorry Sus. I even have a mix on my iTunes for Sooner game day. And I snuck Boomer Sooner onto a Classical CD I made for work--it plays in the halls. My doc is a total OSU fan--she loves me when I play repeat on Boomer Sooner.

But something I've always said is, if U2 is ever around here, I WILL be there. No matter what the price.

Something amazing happened this week. . . I HAVE TICKETS. In front of the stage. For the concert at Gaylord Memorial Stadium on October 18th. Thanks to my friend Bryan Hindman.

He was going to surprise Liz, his wife, who is also a U2 lover, with tickets. Except that I ruined the surprise. I heard on the radio that U2 tickets were going on sale. So I emailed Liz to see if she wanted to go with me, like she would have said no. She emailed back that she would love to but Bryan told her he had a surprise for her in the fall. She didn't know what it was but it might be U2 tickets. Nice ruining of the surprise. So I emailed Bryan. Yup, he had tickets but it was a surprise. So I asked him how he got tickets---told me he signed up early.

So I go onto the U2 website and sign up to be a fan. And pay. And get 2 tickets--not good tickets--but tickets none the less.

Then find out that Bryan has a ticket for me.

No worries, doc is buying the tickets I bought so I'm not out the money.

That's what impatience does for you. But I was not going to miss the opportunity to see them live.

I AM SO PUMPED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

U2. Oct 18th. I will be there.

And I still haven't found what I'm looking for. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .It's a beautiful day . . . . . . . . . . . .
