KNIGHT: Sir Elton John is my favorite of all the knights. He is kicking off a three year farewell tour which includes a stop my hometown on 12/12/18. Lulu’s birthday is on 12/15/18 so I will not be attending. Well that and looks like the show may be sold out. Nothing on Ticketmaster. And yesterday at the beauty parlor one of the ladies was pleased as punch that she already scored her tickets. Part of me knows I cannot advance plan anything. “Can’t say baby where I’ll be in a year,” ala Aerosmith Sweet Emotions!
Lulu turns the big ’21’ and we have been talking about a Vegas trip to celebrate. God willing. We wanted it to be a family affair but B and Pony are out. B because he is a ranch owner and his life will be that of cattle baron with no time for fun and games. And Pony because of the family curse on B’s side. He thinks he would flip his switch and max out his credit cards and go down in a blaze of glory. Earworm, thank you Jon Bon Jovi.
Too bad for them. Girls trip plus 1!
Maybe we should stay at Excalibur and have a knight themed good ole time. Maybe not. The thought of going to Vegas with my kid is weird. Even though she will be a legal adult by then.
Maybe we pick Maryland instead … To see Edgar Allen Poe’s gravesite and other assorted historical places. In 6th grade, I randomly picked Maryland and had to make a salt map of it and write a report. I may still have the report actually. In 7th grade literature, I memorized the Raven. I see a theme merging. Better than throwing a dart at the map and ending up in Minneapolis :). That was so last July!
Anyhoo, having adult children is surreal. And don’t get me started on having an almost 30 year old. Where the hell did the time go? Into a vortex. Suck it!
Only 3 more days! Follow the rules and ping back to join in.
As always, more to come.
