Group E.

Please don't think that I am going to let the fact that out of 46 comments on Friday, almost 40 of you could, in fact, do the crab crawl. That shall not go unnoticed - I assure you. I am just praying about how to address the issue without hurting any feelings. Because my gut tells me that if you can crab crawl we can't be friends. And if you crab crawl AND you do crafts or if you can crab crawl AND still be 6 months pregnant...well, lose my number. That's all I'm sayin'.



So my sweet Attorney General knocked my socks off this weekend, he really did.






I cannot begin to tell you how all kinds of excited I was. I was more excited to see this concert than I was to see Twila Paris at Knotts Berry Farm circa 1981. This band, for me, is the pinnacle. And that's saying something because the last pinnacle for me was when he took me to see Celine and she started her concert on the bow of a boat. And her heart went on. And on. And on.


That's right. If you're keeping score I've seen Celine Dion...Twila Paris...don't forget the Russ Taff / David Meece tour... and well, that about covers it. But now......COLDPLAY!!



Oh, and this group. Though I have to tell you I had no idea who they were until Meridith informed me their big song was on Grey's Anatomy. That's Mer for ya - she knows every example has to have a TV reference or I'm lost as a goose.









Oh? Did I not tell you Meridith went? Yep. She loves her some Coldplay too. Here we are giving the AG our best sexy pose. I don't know what she's doing, but I think it's time this mama bear gave her some pointers. As you can see, I've (as the kids would say) "got. it. goin'. on."








Don't worry, I'm not even going to brag about our seats. Though they were all kinds of awesome.
















And I'm certainly not going to make you jealous by telling you how they walked off they stage and proceeded to come right up to where we sitting and sing. RIGHT BESIDE US! And at one point I could have sworn on my mother's life that Chris Martin's sweat hit my face; but upon further investigation it was the girl in front of me who's gum flew out of her mouth.







And though there's nothing like waking up at 3AM singing...
"Those who are dead / are not dead / they're just living in my head" it didn't bother me.

The Attorney General was bothered, however, when I told him that I thought the La Vida Loca concert was one of the most amazing things I'd ever seen. Because as you know, Ricky Martin sang La Vida Loca. And this, my lovelies, is NOT Ricky Martin.









Not even close.

Sounds fun! That was super nice of AG :)

Robin said...

I was there too!! You had some sweet seats though. My husband and I were in level 330. Oh well, it was fantastic! For me, it ranks up there with an U2 concert and that's like church for me!
I especially like the Mexican cell phone wave. Oh and the balls during Yellow.

so incredibly jealous!!!!!!!!

Amy said...

Those ARE great seats! I like Coldplay as well but haven't been blessed to see them in concert! So...whats up with the move? Are you trying to get past the HOT summer before moving to Texas?!

Sissy said...

so that's my punishment for being able to do the crab crawl? mean. just mean.

Sissy said...

I know that even though I can do the crab crawl and I do crafts, you will still love me, cause our bond is deeper than that, right? I think infertility cancels out the crab crawl and the crafts. Check my math on that, but I think I am right. LOL.

Charloe said...

So, I might be able to do the crab crawl, but I'd trade that talent in a second to see Coldplay! Yep, in a heartbeat. There's nothing wrong with having a married-lady crush on Chris Martin, right?

Melissa said...

Who exactly is Coldplay?



Just kiddin"....

I'm so glad you had fun. Your hottness is being covered by your cat claw! Still hot nonetheless.

Oh, my goodness! I'm a little envious!

I just had to comment because I haven't heard the name "David Meece" in about 20 years. Thanks for the flashback!

Givinya De Elba said...

David Meece flashback! Cool!

Hey look, I'm not gonna lose your number. After all, I'm not into crafts. I just find your writing so awesome, and I love checking in with you. You can't lose me that easy, and certainly not over a pregnant crab crawl.

You're actually more fortunate in that you CAN'T do one. I look absurd. You have been saved from looking absurd. You can just say, "Hey I can't crab crawl" and nobody has to witness you looking like me, like a garbage bag half-filled with water trying to propel itself along the floor in an absurd position, trying to keep this giant booty off the ground.

And I want to find out how you're going with the whole moving-thing. I fell apart when I had to move, but I'm okay now. I wanna see how Melissa manages, and retrospectively draw some strength from how you cope, for I know you will.

Wait . . . have you seen the YouTube video of the piano man playing "Love Story/Vida la Vida"? His name is Jon Schmidt, and you have GOT to check it out.

Still jealous of the concert, though!
