The Matron still happily hums that tune, from time to time.
John and Stryker are going to this concert!
John won tickets from The Current-- which is THE best radio station on the planet and the Matron does not exaggerate, not ever. Nope. You know this, already, right?
Oh, if that isn't enough to rock the Matronly world, the last big ticket at the Xcel Center was this:
Now, at about 6 pm, the Matron had a brilliant and unique idea: "Family! Let's all go downtown and see if we can get in!"
Yes, the Matron and about 30,000 other people, half of whom watched the event on two tremendously huge screens outside the center. Thankfully, Stryker had been monitoring the entire process.
"Mom? Didn't you notice the mile long line when we drove past after school?" Uh, she woulda missed that. "Mom? Did you go online? It's like thousands of people who can't get in already."
So even though they were less than one mile away from all that LOVE they watched the event on TV. But she heard all about it from pumped-up energized friends who made the scene.
(she cried a little during Obama's speech, but don't tell anyone)
Tonight, while John and Stryker rock out, the Matron will be hosting four of Scarlett's friends in a End Of The School Year Sleepover. Apparently, major life events must be marked by snuggling under sleeping bags with best friends.
Lovely. This leaves the Matron alone to protect many many small children--other people's children!-- from the weather and perhaps from the Matron herself! The threat of severe weather or tornado? This morning's public radio projection was more like how bad will it be than will it come.
Considering the Matronly history with severe weather, tonight should be fun!
Or the end of the world as she knows it? And those of you who read the link above understand: she is only half kidding.
Off to make the safe house in the basement.
