I GOT MADONNA TICKETS!
Spend the next few minutes imagining me doing a happy dance. Because I am.
I am a huge Madonna fan. It has been a stated goal of mine to see her live in concert before I die. I tried and tried but never managed to get tickets. A few years ago, I went to Toronto and saw her Sticky and Sweet concert. I loved it. It was fantastic. I was on my feet dancing the whole time. It was expensive, no doubt on that, since I got 100 level seats. But worth every single penny to me. I decided that if she did another tour, I would do my best to get tickets again.
This morning, I heard the announcement and I literally couldn’t believe it for a few minutes. She was coming here? She hasn’t been to Ottawa in a long time. But its true, she’s coming. As soon as the boys were safely at school, I started doing the research. I found confirmation of the concert and joined the fan club so that I could get the presale tickets. Twenty dollars later, I had my codes and access to the presale website. Ten minutes after that, I had tickets on the floor in the third row.
Pause for more happy dancing.
As you might have guessed, I am very excited about this. I think the only thing which would make me more excited is if a publisher called to say they wanted my manuscript. As I was going through the steps, I kept waiting for something to pop up to say “Sorry, not working” or to tell me I somehow didn’t qualify. But I just kept going.
For the next seven months, no matter how life sucks, I just have to remind myself: in September, I’m going to see Madonna. And it’s gonna be awesome.
