There's a Bathroom on the Right

Let me preface this by saying, if there is a crowd and I am in it, you can always find me next to the biggest asshole or six there. Never fails, put me in a room and they are drawn to me like a magnet.

Whynot and I got some comps to see Creedence Clearwater Revisted at the Horseshoe in Hammond IN. I love FREE and we both love the rock and roll, so in spite of the heavy snow in the forecast, we were off like dirty shirts.

It was date night on The Avenue, I even showered and applied makeup. Put on one of my new bras too!

Our seats were pretty much front and center, well they were center, what do you want for free? They were good seats...UNTIL....see above...yup, the assholes arrived.

Directly in front we have Mr I Won't Grow Up, I'm still in high school, so I'm gonna hoot an holler like a fool. The guy was AT LEAST 60. And that's all well and good, but DO NOT draw attention to yourself and act like an ass and pretend you know the song titles when your dementia prevents it. And do not try to make friends with me, by telling me what a stick in shit your frigid wife is. I'm all set in that department thankyouverymuch. Further more, do not try to impress me with the fact that you smuggled in a beer from home unless you have one or six to offer me!

Behind me and to my right, so that I can see them out of the corner of my eye the entire night, are Homecoming King and Queen, Mr and Mrs Public Display of Affection. They started out in their seats with some heavy kissing and proceeded to bump and grind to about 4 songs before they disappeared to consummate their union. Again these were not teens, but old people! Shit they were at least 55! People, as I told my kids, do not do in public what you would be embarrassed by if Oprah or your mother saw you!

The music wasn't bad. They're old! It's hard to hit those high notes. But they were ok and surprisingly, I remembered most of the songs, considering I was TEN when the original Creedence Clearwater Revival split up.

The set included

  • Born On The Bayou

  • Commotion
  • Have you Ever Seen Rain
  • Suzie Q
  • Hey Tonight

  • Down On The Corner
  • Looking Out My Backdoor

  • I Heard It Through The Grapevine
  • Midnight Special
  • Proud Mary

  • Fortunate Son
  • Travelin' Band
  • Up Around The Bend
  • Good Golly Miss Molly
and of course
  • Bad Moon Rising aka There's a Bathroom on the Right
Gotta love those misheard lyrics!

Good night! I'm off to bed now, time for Whynot to repay those sexual favors from last week. Oops, sorry for the TMI.

Yep, I gave up on concert going more than a decade ago. Eventually the concert is on TV or DVD anyway.

Fun! The last concert I went to some @sshole tried to set my hair on fire!

AirmanMom said...

sounds like too much fun! CCR has always been a great band! As for those trying to recapture their youth, sounds like something I would do...try to stand on my chair, with my cane holding me steady!

Stacie said...

well...at least you had good music. LOL and hopefully sexual favors at the end of the night.

Mary Moore said...

That would have been fun to see. The concert, not the idiots.

The same thing happened to me at the latest Police concert. This couple in front of us were doing everything *but* "IT". And they were much older than me. Ick.

Deb said...

At least you didn't get your sexual favors at the concert! Glad Whynot could wait.

amelia bedelia said...

I hate the PDA people....get a room! This made me laugh!!

Da Old Man said...

I love CCR, too.

Glad you almost had a good time.

Meghan said...

Baaa!
Ha!
Ha!
You crack me up with your descriptions.

Leah said...

Well, I hope despite the assholes you were able to enjoy your time! LOL People always amaze me, even when I feel like I've seen it all!

Janie at Sounding Forth said...

Love your descriptions of everything!!

Jenni Jiggety said...

Woo Hoo! Sounds like a fun night! Well, except for the asshole.

I love Down on the Corner!

Day 3 of the Where’s Wenda? Contest is here. Today I am visiting all of the SITStas that commented on Three Bay B Chicks. That means you! Thanks so much for stopping by and for being a great SITSta!

-Wenda

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

Looky there! I see Wenda! ;)

HILARIOUS commentary about the concert...I seem to be a magnet for those idiots, too - we probably shouldn't ever do a concert together, we'd be surrounded...(grin!!)

dana wyzard said...

Well, I'm completely at a loss of words......no I'm NOT!!! Those SIXTY YEAR OLD PEOPLE were the ones who BELONGED there. Creedence is OUR generation. You were the ones out of place.

Damn kids referring to us older people like we can't hear them and like we have no rights and like we're demented or something and I'd like to give her a piece of my mind and tell her what. . . . . oh. . . . am I still here? bye. . . . . . how do I get out of this comment section. . . .
