Sometimes my dorkiness is too much even for my closest friends.
Several months ago I sent out an email, trying to rally support for a trip to the United Center to see the Spice Girls’ reunion tour. Come on! How fun would THAT be!!
Not one of my friends took me up on that idea. Nor did most of the nation and the tour quickly fizzled into nothing.
Not that I’m some crazy Spice Girls fan or anything. I remember their one song and I thought their movie was campy, silly fun, but I’ve never bought any of their stuff. Wanting to see them in concert was never about musical appreciation or anything like that. It was about the experience of attending a Spice Girls concert. It would have been fascinating!
And then recently, I sent out an email trying to get my friends to go see the new musical “Dirty Dancing” with me.
Most of my friends just ignored the suggestion entirely. I have to assume the email got lost in cyberspace… But I did get a few responses.
They ranged from polite:
“I’m sorry, but I never really cared for that movie. Maybe your parents would like to go the next time they’re in town?”
To mildly snarky:
“That’s all you, babe.”
To outright snarky:
“Did someone steal your meds???”
I never said I was cool.
Now, who wants to go see the Back Street Boys at Ravinia this weekend????
Have a great holiday, everyone!!!!
