Happy Friday, friends! The weekend is upon us once again, and it couldn’t come soon enough. Johnny and I had our date night one night early — on Thursday night — and went to a college football game. So today feels like it should be Saturday.
I like football games. Johnny? Johnny loves football games. And being there in person to see it all go down just takes the cake for him. Even when we were poor college students, we somehow scrounged up the money for a student pass to all the live sporting events. And when we were paying off our school loans while living in NY and Boston, we managed to find the extra dough to attend several concerts. I like it and I go along with it, but if it were up to me, I’d probably spend that money on something else.
Take football, for instance. If I stay home and watch it on TV, I can also crochet or bake or paint my nails while watching — multitasking at its finest. And I think what I see on the TV is sometimes even better than being there in person.
And concerts. I like those, too. And I like those more than football games. But if the band is one that Johnny likes more than I do, I’ve been known to count songs so I know how many songs are left. I can sense Johnny’s eyes rolling as he reads this later.
To Johnny, it’s worth the money because it’s an experience. I go along with it because I know he loves it, and I like it. A date night is a date night, and I’m always giddy for it. But deep down? I’m actually a big lame-o who would rather just stay home and pocket the money. Or get clothes.
What about you? Are live events worth the money to you? It’s okay, Johnny won’t be offended if you tell the truth. He’ll just block your IP address and send you Nigerian prince spam emails. 😉
