I am a child of the 80's. Spent my highschool days listening to Duran Duran, Bon Jovi, Cyndi Lauper, with some Modern English and Psychedelic Furs thrown in there. The soundtrack to my youth makes me happy.
So, last year, for the big 4-0, my family wanted to throw me a big party. Um.... no. When you're turning 40 and you're single... the last thing you want to do is be put on display.
Enter Princess Penelope and her brilliant ideas. Bon Jovi was on tour with The Circle and they were playing in Atlanta...so Penelope suggested that instead of throwing me a party, why doesn't everyone chip in to get me tickets and a hotel room in Atlanta for the concert. I've always wanted to see Bon Jovi and never had. Yes, my child is brilliant! And yes, she got to go with me! We had the BEST time! Hands down, the best live show I've ever seen. The PERFECT present.
My whole point in all of this is.... today Bon Jovi announced their upcoming tour dates. Yes, they are playing in Atlanta again....yes, I want to go....but, we aren't THERE yet, we aren't even halfway there yet. So, no, I won't be going. sigh.
