For some stupid reason, I didn't buy tickets to the Bryan Adams concert in Ottawa when they went on sale last March. Yesterday, a friend posted on Facebook about how great his show in Montreal was. And I was like, ARGH, why didn't I buy tickets?! The show is completely sold out -- no tickets anywhere, and I checked out a LOT of web sites.
So this morning, a radio station was giving away a pair of tickets to the show, which is tonight. You had to listen for the DJs to say "Reckless", and then be the 9th caller through. I had the radio on loud and brought the phone everywhere with me while I got ready for work -- yes, even into the bathroom!! Just before I left for work, I turned the radio off (hubby's alarm doesn't go off till 8:30). But then I thought I should leave the radio on and have hubby listen for the word too. I left the phone right next to him on the bed and asked him to pay attention!!
So I'm at work, the DJ says "Reckless", and I start dialing my office phone and my cell phone. Of course, busy signals every time. Then I get ringing on my office phone and my heart is beating like crazy. But nobody picks up, and after a couple of minutes, they have the 9th caller on the radio. And I'm like, CRAP!!! Denied!! The DJ comments that the winner sounds tired. Hmmmm... maybe a guy in bed?? The DJ asks him his name.... coincidentally, his name is the same as hubby's name. So now I'm cluing in to the fact that the winner's voice sounds like hubby's voice... the DJ asks him if he's excited about winning, and the winner says that "the wifey" is going to be really excited. At which point, "the wifey" is about to pop from excitement.... and then the DJ asks what "the wifey's" name is, and now the wifey is jumping up and down in her office and yelling OH MY GOD , OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD (well, yelling quietly!!) because she's the wifey and she's going to the Bryan Adams concert tonight!!!! YEAH!!!!!!
