December 19th Brendon and Mary, his friend, went to see a group called Bowling for Soup. If you listen to any pop music you would know them best from the song 1985. I have come to know and love this group even more than just that song because of Brendon and his friends. They are a quirky fun group that believes in having fun, telling it like it is, and entertaining people. This particular concert was at a small venue in Oklahoma City and the kids got their tickets signed by the band. I am insanely jealous that I was not able to attend this concert with the kids. BUMMER!! They even had a chance to have pictures taken with the band!
Now my favorite Bowling for Soup memory is four years ago at Brendon’s 16th birthday. Bowling for Soup was having a concert at Frontier City’s Amphitheater. So I took Brendon and his friends, all girls, to see the concert. As they sang 1985 it dawned on me that 20 years prior, it was 1985, I was turning 16 and I was working for that theme park. I just found it ironic that 20 years later I would find myself back at that same theme park listening to a group sing about the time when I was working there. I am so glad they had a great time!
