Last summer, almost a year to the day, I won tickets to see Mr. Worldwide in concert.
I’m a smidgen obsessed.
So a few months ago, at the mall with my niece, I heard B96 ask for caller 25 and I got the feeling. The one where I feel like I’m going to win something. I immediately started dialing, not really sure what I was calling FOR. My niece just laughed and said, “OH YOU WIN EVERYTHING!” As we got situated, I put the ringing phone to my side, only to pick it up and realize that someone was talking! They asked What’s up! And I thought…uh, I think I won something? And they seemed incredulous.
Then, I started to panic. Surely, this must be a call asking me to rat out a cheating boyfriend or a lying best friend. Maybe my dog ate my homework or my parents embarrassed me recently. She laughed and said, “Uh you think?! Yes! You won Summer Bash tickets!” Commence ear piercing screams from my niece and lots of slapping. Slapping on my arm, “SEE?!?! You win everything!”
Next, we looked up the playlist (because duh, who even knew who was performing!?!) and Ta-Dah! Headliner was Pitbull himself and then I fainted. Add in a little Jason Derulo for me and Austin Mahone for her and we were all set!
Acting like we’re way cooler than we are outside of Toyota Park, people-watching. Okay, she’s probably way cooler, I’m just a groupie.
The sun is beating down and we just saw Jason Derulo’s bare chest because he removed his shirt. Again, totally surprised.
By the end of the night, both of our phones were dead, our voices hoarse, and cheeks beat red from looking into the sun for a few hours. All in all a great day! (You can see the full line-up of artists here.)
What’s your favorite concert that you’ve been to recently?
