A MAD WORLD: Choosing between Cruise Ships or Lambert’s Lips – A Glamb Fan’s Salty Saga
Nooo, — not just one, – but crazily, I bought TWO tickets to the same American Idol show coming up. It appears that Row M was only good enough until a seat opened up the next day a mere FOUR ROWS FROM THE STAGE where Adam would be singing on September 9th in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. The seat is so close that I should be able to see sweat glistening on his velvet eyeliner from there! I am PUMPED!
So, can you tell? I’m not just a fan, I’m also a “Glamb,” Glamb #9, to be sure, and seeing Adam perform in person is an incredible priveledge which I have been anxiously looking forward to for months!
Then, in an incredible twist of fate… I was offered an expense-paid cruise that directly overlaps the Sept 9th concert date. Hmmm. Did I mentioned the cruise was expense-paid? Did I mention my seat to see Adam Lambert is only FOUR teeny rows from the stage?? CAN YOU BEGIN TO FEEL MY DILEMMA???
I’M IN SHREDS over this! It’s not like I get to do either of these things very often – or ever. Suddenly I have two world-class things to do, but…. at the very same time… and I have to choose between them! If they were even just a few days more apart, I could do both. But they’re not. And all the rest of the year I’ll be sitting like a lump doing nothing, going nowhere. It IS a MAD WORLD!
It would be insane to turn down the cruise; but forfeiting this opportunity to see Adam makes me antsy because my last dream of seeing my long-time music hero, Paul Simon, in concert, took nearly 40 years. 40 YEARRRRS! I was 11, for goodness sake, when I first made that wish! I simply cannot wait another lifetime to see Adam! With that track record, it makes the choosing even tougher!
So ADAM,…IF YOU’RE LISTENING..…..
Ohhhh….I am so going to miss your moves and grooves and liner and glitter and sweat……ahem…oh, and your incredible voice!
You have some of the warmest, most giving and selfless fans behind you – some of which are my fellow Glambadministrators of this site who are taking up my share so that I can set out to sail the salty sea – as well as the AWESOME FANS dedicated to you and this site!
Thank you, Adam, for already making big dreams come true for your fans by reaching so many on your extensive tour! How fortunate are the fans who get to see you! They will be empowered with that memory the rest of their lives.
As for me, sailing ships means losing Lambert’s lips, and I’ll have to flip the big Father Timer over again and hope that it’s not another 40 years before hearing my fav performer in person!
And ADAM FANS…IF YOU’RE LISTENING….
How about throwing me and others who will miss the show a life saver and email your stories, pics, and references to videos of the Sept 9th concert to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can see what we’re missing, …p-l-e-a-s-e!
