Do you know why?! BECAUSE I AM GOING TO SEE NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK ON SATURDAY NIGHT!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
For my 11th birthday my mom spent DAYS trying to find a ticket to their concert but they were completely sold out. So instead I got a(nother!) poster and the VHS of all their music videos and tour footage. It wasn’t tickets, but when I opened it, I screamed like I was AT the concert. I was so excited! We watched that video over and over and over and over. I had ALL the posters BOP Magazine ever printed on my wall. In fact, when we evacuated for Hurricane Hugo in 1989 my mom told me to gather my precious belongings to take with me. You know what I took? My scriptures and all my posters of New Kids on The Block, which I tucked safely in my trapper keeper. And in 6th grade when it wasn’t “cool” to like them anymore, I still did. And I secretly listened to their music. I remember having to say out loud that they weren’t cool (so I could be) and inside I was totally crying. Ha ha.
Now, 20 years later … I AM GOING TO THEIR CONCERT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Finally! I will scream, sway, dance, and maybe even cry. I’ll probably buy a t-shirt too. Ohmigosh. I seriously can’t even wait.
And to Rox, who had an extra ticket and thought to invite me?! Roxy I LOVE YOU! You are the best in the whole wide world and I will ever be in debt to you.
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I’M GOING TO SEE NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK ON SATURDAY!
