I subscribe to a lot of Groupon/Living Social type emails. It used to be these sites were mostly restaurants (yay!). Now it seems like it's a lot of microdermabrasion, teeth whitening, waxing and carpet cleaning (not so yay).
After about a month drought where I didn't buy anything. Today I hit 2 for 2.
The first was $25 for $50 at Wash Park Grille.
And then I saw an email from Travel Zoo.
It must be a mistake.
$25 for Bon Jovi tickets?
Let me read the fine print to make sure that I'm not missing anything. Other than the pesky $7.75ish convenience fee, it was legit (I know those fees aren't for my convenience). In reality it was $65 for 2 tickets. Still a hell of a deal.
I (along with millions of others) grew up when Slippery When Wet was the big album. On record. Or cassette.
We hadn't arrived at CD's yet. iTunes wasn't even a glimmer in Apple's eye.
side note: My first CD was Skid Row. Parents were appalled.
My second CD was Paula Abdul's "Straight Up."
The way back machine starts running in my mind. I'm at a lock in at the YMCA. A group is lip syncing to "Living on a Prayer." 20+ years later that song still makes me crank it up and sing along at the top of my lungs.
Ohhhhh half way there
Sing that line.
You know you want to.
