A bit of serendipity on my birthday.

this was the strangest thing. Last Thursday (the 19 th) i turned 24 (If you look at it in a mirror). My wife and a coworker of her's happened to stop at a convenience store near where they work in the Woodlands (north of Houston). A man in the store was buying a duffel bag full of cigarette cartons. The coworker struck up a conversation with the guy asking about this odd purchase. Turns out, he is the stage manager for a band called the Struts, who was opening for a little band known as the Foo Fighters that night at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. My wife jokingly asked, "Hey, are you gonna hook us up with tickets?" To her surprise, the guy said, "sure." He gets her info and she receives a text later saying 2 tickets are waiting for her at will call.

She texts me while I'm at work saying she got us tickets to see the Foo Fighters (her friend told her to take me since it was my birthday). I didn't even realize they were playing a concert near us. I was surprised, and i figured she had bought them ( i didn't know about the convenience store thing yet).

After work, i meet my wife at a mall near the venue. As we're driving to the concert, she tells me the story. At this point I'm thinking, "oh lord. She got duped big time by some chain smoking weirdo." But, we get to will call and there are indeed 2 tickets waiting for her! So we are expecting lawn seats, which are far back from the stage, but still a cool place to hang out and watch a show. As we look at the tickets, they say section 100, which is in the roof covered area. We show our tickets to several venue workers and they keep ushering us closer and closer to the stage. Once our seats were located, we realize we are 11 rows back from the stage which is extremely close!

Holy canoli! It was an awesome night and an awesome concert, and i have to say, the best free birthday gift I've ever received!

old. Boring. Too complacent to realize my full potential.
