A month ago, as I listened to a favorite podcast, For the Love with Jen Hatmaker and it was mentioned that there would be a “For the Love” LIVE podcast in November.
Hurry!! Look at my calendar!!
It’s a Tuesday. Crap.
It’s in Atlanta. Crap.
I dismissed it
A few days later I am listening to another favorite podcast “The Popcast” with Jamie Golden and Knox McCoy and they mentioned the same Live podcast and they were going to be special guest at the same Live show.
I really want to go
I mentioned going to a few and they have jobs.
All is not lost
That evening after dinner, after the table was cleared and the dishes were washed, I mentioned that there was an event I would love to go to.
I have a birthday coming up and maybe it could be my birthday gift.
We are not big birthday celebrators and our birthdays are 8 days apart. Sometimes we combine our days and do something fun. Sometimes we go on a birthday date and call it a day.
Buy the tickets Charma, I’ll go with you.
Yesterday was the day.
He took off work and we packed a bag.
We left in time to hit up Chick-fil-A for breakfast and we were on our way.
We listened to music
I read my book for book club.
We caught up on reno schedules and chatted about nonsense
5 hours later we make it. Atlanta traffic ain’t no joke.
We checked into our hotel, changed our clothes and grabbed some dinner
The venue was a performing arts center so it was on the smaller size
Our seats were upgraded at the entrance gate so we were pretty close!
As we sat down, we were put in the center of the aisle. This is not normal procedure for a 6’6″ person. They like to sit on the end so as not to block anyone’s view who might sit behind them.
This event was also very heavy female oriented and as we sat waiting for the event to start, it was said “I can count on one hand how many men are in this room.”
Jen took the stage and she was as entertaining as she is on her podcast and as an author.
As the Live podcast begins, enters “The Popcast” hosts Jamie and Knox. I’m not usually a fan girl but it’s fun to sit and listen to the people that are usually in your ear buds as you sand and paint stuff.
If you are still reading this long post, this experience was fun. I tend to feel guilty when things are about me. My person took off work. He drove 10 hours to and from Atlanta for a two hour event when his job includes driving a lot of the time. He sat in a venue with many women. He let me take pictures and he laughed and sat next to me in the center of the aisle.
Thank you honey for time well spent. There is no one I want to sit beside more than you.
Your turn is Friday.
Night ranger here we come
