Rob Thomas and Jewel

I was buried in a new project I’m working on all day today and was ready for a break. Around 6PM a friend called to ask if I would be interested in attending the Rob Thomas and Jewel concert at Gaylord Entertainment Center. A friend hooked him up with 4 tickets and he was glad to let me have two of those. I dig Rob Thomas so I was pretty excited since tickets started around $37 and I’m a cheapskate. (You’ll be more aware of that in future postings.)

When I asked what time the concert started he said 7PM. GRrrrr. Good fortune is cool… but not when your significant other is at work and can’t get away. I immediately began scrolling through my phone to see who I could tolerate for the next few hours. I narrowed it down to about three choices and called Number One on the list. VOICEMAIL. I left one. Later I found out they, too, were working. Number Two. A REAL VOICE! They had already made plans they couldn’t break. Number Three. VOICEMAIL. I left a message in haste and then began contemplating who else might be a worthy candidate. I could have gone by myself but then there would be a ticket wasted.

During my contemplative period my phone rang. It’s the guy who was hooking me up to start with asking if I had found someone. I told him I was waiting on a callback but I wasn’t sure. He asked if I would mind if he just gave them to his sister and her boyfriend. Sure… I was cool with that. I thank him. He thanks me. We hang up.

I decided to dig back into my research when Candidate Number Three returned my call and is very excited to attend tonight’s event with me.

Of course.

Anyone care to tell me how the concert was?

    Given that it was Jewell, I’m betting it sucked.

    Katherine, you’re so ambiguous. Tell us how you feel about Jewel ;)

    The guys I know who went said Jewel was better than they expected and they didn’t stay for Rob Thomas. No idea why.

    Just like those Jewel groupies to leave early. They probably had to find someone to save their soul.

    I didn’t think Jewel was all that great, but Rob Thomas was awesome.

    Jewel was better than I thought she would be. She was quite funny with her audience banter.

    Rob Thomas was amazing as always. You missed a great show.
