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.

- Born On The Bayou
- Have you Ever Seen Rain
- Suzie Q
- Hey Tonight

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