I’m a Nerd and I’m ok With It.

I haven’t been to many concerts in my life.  I would probably say it’s mostly motivated by who do I really want to see in person enough to deal with a monster crowd for hours on end compared to the cost of the ticket.  There’s a cost benefit analysis element for me.  See?  I’m a nerd.  That’s ok. 

Add in the concerts that I have seen and my nerdy goose is proverbially cooked.  When I was a tween my very first concert was to see the Osmonds.  I really don’t remember much about the concert.  I do remember that we watched the TV show every week.  I watched Donny & Marie in “Goin’ Coconuts”.  I hate to say it but I think the user reviews in that link might have been a little generous.  I wasn’t in love with Donny then though, I was in love with Merrill.  He was just cuter.  Donny was too reckless.  (I wasn’t in love with Luke Skywalker when Star Wars came out either – Harrison Ford all the way.)  I did however love watching Donny and Marie every week so I know I loved the concert.

My second concert was when I was 18 years old.  I went with my parents and Kevin to see Neil Diamond.  That was a great concert for me.  “Forever in Bluejeans”, “I Am… I Said”.  I was in heaven.  His was one of my favorite cassettes.  His show at the time didn’t disappoint (lots of lasers). 

The last concert I went to see was Alabama on their Farewell Tour. So many songs they sang remind me of high school and dating my husband that I had to go to this concert. It was a fabulous night for me. 

So now you know.  Hey, being a nerd isn’t so bad.  Actually maybe I should go back to the methodical creative thinker with above average intelligence. I really just has a good ring to it.

  1. Just dropping in.
    My first concert ever was “Donny & Marie”…then Michael Bolton, followed by Neil Diamond. So, yeah…
    And LOVE that I found someone else who even KNOWS “Goin’ Coconuts”. I have a “donny signed” VHS copy.

    So while I hate to “one-up” you on the “I’m a nerd” thing?
    Yeah, consider this your “one-up”-ing.
