Concert Going…

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: — C'hele @ 05:08

It has been a busy week.

Since last Sunday in fact.

Last Sunday I went to see ZZ Top, one of my top-five favourite bands. My God, for a bunch of seniors, they still play and sing like they were twenty. I purchased tickets so it would allow us (yes, I had a date with me) on the floor. I felt like I was twenty-something again myself.

Have you ever seen a joint the size of a Cuban cigar? First time I did. And holy crap, a bunch of fifty-something year old women were passing it around in the crowd. Up and down the isles this joint/cigar went on the floor. Then someone handed it to me. All I could do was show a disgusted look on my face, pinch it with two fingers (as in ewwww) and hand it to the guy on my left.

With a shocked look on his face he commented: “What’s the matter? It’s just a joint!”

“Are you crapping me?” I retorted. “There is no way in hell, I would allow that thing to touch my lips. Especially since a dozen people had already brought it to their mouths.”


The guy just looked at me with a bewildered look and shook his head as he brought the cigar shaped doobie to his lips to inhale from it deeply.

Jeezus. People are stupid.

Moving along, it was quite interesting people watching. I’ve never seen so many different types of people under one roof. Mostly people forty +. And lots and lots of biker types. It was very interesting to say the least. I felt like I was on a different planet.

Tonight I am going to the Daniel Wesley Concert at the Commodore in Vancouver. He sings the hit song, “Pilgrimage.” It should be good. He has a rustic, laid-back voice in which I like.

I’ll let you know how the concert went.



  1. Goodness, woman, your social life is more interesting than mine! The weed culture is not one I pretend to understand.

  2. Well, the social life will come to a calm slowness as Christmas approaches. But I tell ya. I’m getting old. Last night I was exhausted, came home at 2 a.m.- I can’t stay up as long as I used to!

    As for the weed culture, I can honestly say that I truly understand. I grew up at the tail-end of the 70’s and the 80’s (where acid became popular again & weed never went out). Most of my friends did this stuff. Because I knew I had a highly sensitive nervous system and that my body would most likely have an adverse reaction to any drug, I never did them. Good thing too. Acid did some minor neurological damage to one girlfriend of mine.

  3. Blecch! Even shaking hands with strangers freaks me out; there’s no way in hell I’d share a joint, or even a glass, with a dozen unwashed heathens. 🙂
