Where will I be at this time tomorrow night? Rockin' at the Izod Center at the NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK concert! Funny that a few casual adult conversations through the years with my best friends/fellow New Kids fans that started, "Wouldn't it be so much fun if they reunited and toured! We are definitely going to go to a concert if they ever tour. Do you think they will?" has now become reality. I'm a little overwhelmed. I think I might cry when they hit the stage. If I faint, I am now requesting that Jon Knight give me mouth-to-mouth. Or Rick Springfield, if he happens to be at the concert.
In celebration, I am bringing along some old school treasures. I just came down from my attic where I retrieved 4 extra-large buttons, a banner, and 4 stickers from a Giants Stadium concert in July 1990. I plan to distribute my mementos to my 3 friends, who shall remain nameless because I'm not sure if they are as unashamedly outspoken about their former passion for the New Kids. I, on the other hand, don't care, as you may very well know if you read this blog. I don't care that people know that some part of my brain thinks it's 14. And it has a very good time, thank you very much. That's also the part that doesn't balance the checkbook, unfortunately.
Jon, Jordan, Joey, Danny, and Donnie - You are going to make a bunch of 30-something year-old women very happy tomorrow night. Just please end the concert by about 10:30. I have a kid now. And a job.
