Two new adventures last night. First, helping Pam (my sis-in-law) at the door taking tickets and checking IDs at the Eagles. Second, a metal music show. I took out my hearing aids for this one, opting for foam earplugs instead. And what fun!
Can a 59-year-old fall in love with a genre so riotous? Yes! I felt like a child lining a parade route, horns and drums pounding a primal reverberation in my chest.
And the crowd? The range of ages was staggering. The leathers and spikes and tattoos and chained wallets were donned by nice people. They were old and young. I saw shorts, dresses, boots, denims, nose rings, dreads, shaved heads and sweaty jumping folks.
It was such fun!
Would I do this again someday. Yes! Only maybe I’ll try a henna tattoo in one my arm first, LOL. Hey, I gotta start small. 😉
