BIEBER fever that is.
and we decided that we wanted to attend the Today show's Summer Concert Series this last Friday. The guest:
We figured we should aim to wake up around 3:30 am if we wanted to get a semi-good spot. But we were so wrong. Parents had been in line since eight the previous morning. What a joke!
We managed to reach the front line of the back barricade (something I think we were both proud of)....but what intense fans! The eight to fifteen year-olds surrounding us were the rowdiest crowd I've ever been around, enough to take me (a closet fan) into survival-of-the-fittest mode. I'm ashamed of the things I said to these children.
"Hey you know what, life isn't fair, kid. Get over it!"
"Ya, ya! You think staying up all night in this line is painful?! Try going through college finals week, you punk."
"Girlfriend, JB isn't going to think your fanatic screaming is attractive. Why don't you make it pleasant for someone who has more of a chance."
(Okay....so I didn't really say that last one. But I was thinking it.)
I'm a bit ashamed. I could have crushed these delicate hearts' dreams....and I of all people should recall my own tween days of Aaron Carter obsession.
I suppose I should warn not to let my smile fool you?
making the switch.
