… there was this girl, see? And this girl was pretty nice and somewhat normal. Then, along came a boy and this boy’s mere presence made this sweet girl do all manner of things not in her usual repertoire of tasks. Things such as walk a 5k, stand on line all day in the blazing sun just to catch a glimpse of said boy, stay up all night calling and texting so he could win a contest and lots more stuff. She even referred to him as her “sekrit boyfriend” – so sekrit, even HE doesn’t know it!
She had clearly gone ’round the bend.
So far ’round the bend that she paid some good cash money to see him up close and personal. (Her response? “I don’t toil away at that damn day job for nothing!”)
And so she did.
Up. Close. and kinda sorta personal.
After much waiting in the cold (minus a coat for which she will blame no one (cough) but herself because she’s old enough to know better (cough)), she got to meet and greet her beloved.
Who was a tad bit distracted and didn’t seem all that happy.
Who knows why.
She was, however, brazen enough to ask him to sign her cd cover as her sekrit BF. She said to him “Just don’t ask why.” and because he is a nice midwestern boy, he didn’t ask why. He’s fairly compliant like that.
She did tell him the story, though, of how her friend Kim reminded her on Facebook that her love for him isn’t such a “sekrit” and her reply? “No shit it’s not a secret!” He got a good laugh out of that.
Rest of M&G is sort of a blur but she does remember telling Andy and Kyle how much she loved them while saying a polite hello to Monty and Devin. Unhappy that she continues to look hideous in photos but is working on it.
Blah Blah more standing in the cold, no food, thankful for friends who keep blankets in their cars, three glasses of wine, Dave-trance, Cousin O’Love and Charlie O’Pal get to see the real fangirl roll on out, headbanging to Led Zep “Rock N Roll” and sweating. Fun!
She is able to join the after-show Meet and Greet and is glad she was paying attention when they said “the line starts here” because here was right where she was standing! First in line FTW!!
Dave much more relaxed, she gets massive hug and tells him (like he cares, but whateves) that she’s seen six shows and would follow him anywhere. (At least she didn’t mope to his face about how hard dating is because no one else is like him. Have you no shame, girl who did that??)
Home again, home again jiggidy jig. A fun time was had by all.
But especially this one girl who didn’t wear a coat and got a cold for her fangirly efforts.
(She says “It was so totally worth it.”)
(Until next show)
