Remember when I got to do Happy Friday posts like... every Friday? Those were surely the days.
I run my life. Or is it running me?
Taylor Swift is playing in Lubbock tonight. The day tickets went on sale in early summer, I pulled up the ticket site and waited for 9:00 to strike so I could get some good ones. At about 8:45 I decided to take a quick shower. Around 9:15ish I went back to my computer and the whole show was sold out. It was devastating.
I'm not a concert person whatsoever and really would rather do a whole slew of things that have to go sit through a concert. But NOT Taylor's concert. There's not a song of her's that I don't know by heart.
This week I signed up for texting contests, email contests, and listener contests to try to win tickets. I listened to the radio every day and called in whenever I heard three Taylor songs in a row. Today, 1st row tickets were going to be up for grabs. I thought about listening while I got ready for work but assumed they wouldn't give them away until later in the day because that's how it's been all of the other days this week.
In the line to get my breakfast at Chick-fil-a before work, they announced all of the week's winners on the radio, including the winners to all of the contests I had entered AND the 1st row ticket winner from "earlier this morning."
I'm ashamed to admit it friends, but I sure did start crying.
Needless to say, it's a disappointing Friday. But at least today is a good catch-up day at work and I'm only two parent conferences away from going home to my brand new iPhone!!
