ok... sort of

I've written and re-written and erased and re-written this post about 5 times so far, so here's hoping this time is the last one.

Our Friday concert went ok.
And, by "ok," I mean there was no spontaneous combustion or natural disaster or outbreak of deadly contagious disease. Vampire bats did not descend upon the concert hall, nor was there an attack of zombie kangaroos from hell. There were no schizophrenic supermodels threatening to kill us all if we stole their imaginary salad, nor did anyone fire up a chainsaw during the Bach fugue.

I survived.

There was more I wanted to say about what happened at ABC group afterward, but I just don't have the heart. I give up.

Right now I think I just want to curl up in a warm bed with some warm cats and hopefully dream of a world where things are better than just "ok".

(P.S. Imaginary salad is free and has no calories; of COURSE people are going to try and steal it.)

Sadly, when I do a show I actually hope that one or more of those things will happen. It would just add great special effects to the performance and might just set us apart from the rest of the bands and move us to the top.

Later Y'all.

I'm dreaming right with you!

Glad everything went well, though zombie kangaroos would have been a pretty cool thing to witness.

Nothing wrong with ok. It's better than not ok.

I agree with the commenter above. sometimes just okay, is great. its not bad its not good. but its gray.

Meloncutter: Let me know if zombie kangaroos show up at your first concert. Take video.

Musing: If only dreams would come true.

DaOldMan: And they pack a mean punch, too!

GigglePixie: Thank you...!

Travis: And there were also some post-concert moments that were definitely NOT ok. It's... well, it's complicated.

JustAGirl: If only gray wasn't so complicated. Sigh.

What's an ABC Group?

Already Been Cheated-on?
Alcoholics Bananamous, Corporated?
A Bile Convention?
After-Blog Comment?
Apostle-Bringing Commandment?

Whall: Although I HAVE been "cheated on" at various times in my life, ABC is actually the social group we have after band. A few of us get together afterward and have dinner and try to amuse one another. We used to gather at this restaurant called "Cavoni's", so ABC stood for "After Band = Cavoni's". But we don't meet there anymore, so the "C" is up for grabs. Maybe it stands for "chat" or "comaraderie" or "companionship". Or "calories."
