It's been a long time since hubby and I had a date. We just find it very hard to leave the kids behind as we do most of the things together. The last time was during our 7th wedding anniversary a couple of years ago, we left them at Dad's but even then I felt guilty celebrating with hubby without them. Anyhow, the lady that is administering the veteran's office at my husband's school gave him free tickets for two for Jimmy Buffett's concert. Hubby and I thought that it will give us a reason to go on a date lol.
Two days before the concert, hubby was backing out because he was dreading the long traffic so I told him that we don't have to go and that he could just give it out to somebody who wants to watch JB. He changed his mind and said that he wanted me to experience watching a concert here. So we went and sure enough, more than an hour of our drive was spent sitting on a traffic.
Lady in Red: Fifty Dollars please.
Hubby: What? Di you say $50?
Lady in Red: (Smiled big and said) I was just kidding, it's $15 only.
Me: (Relieved) I thought for sure it's fifty coz that's too much.
Most of the people were in costume and most of them were drunk already so I told hubby that we won't stay very long as I was developing a migraine already from them screaming and acting wild. We laid our blanket and sat for 15 minutes while waiting for the concert to start. As soon as he started, the screaming gets louder and louder so I told hubby that we have to leave. Hubby said let's hear one more song and towards the end of the song, a drunk guy spilled and poured the whole cup of beer on us. Hubby's shirt and my back were wet. We did not drink beer but we came home smelling like drunk, sigh.
The guy who spilled the beer said sorry and offered his blanket to us but it scared the heck out of me so we got up, gathered our soaking wet blanket and left. I am just thankful that my husband contained his fury inside him and chose not to blow up on the guy. It was a date to remember I would say but never again I would go to a concert like that. It was my first experience and would be my last.
Thanks to Gail and Chris for having the kids while we were away for few hours.
