The Worst Attempt Ever

Well, I've been on a quest for, say, the last seven weeks. Or so. Billy Joel is coming to the Bi-Lo center! I can't think that without becoming excited! The piano! The voice! Just half an hour from my home! Can you tell I'm psyched?

So the first time I hear this news, I immediately hie over to the internet (preparing to be crestfallen, because I'm no idiot) in search of ticket prices. And Lo, the cheapeth tickets for the show of the Man of Piano were available for sale at the priceth of forty drachmas plus five ($45 bucks). And Lara saw it, and it was not good. Not good.

So what's a woman to do? Clearly, not pay for the tickets. But how to get them free? The idea seemed good enough at first: win them! It was great. I was rocking out to Elton John, Eric Clapton, Stevie Nicks, John Denver (quit teasing), Bob Seger, and of course calling the radio station every single time I heard a Billy Joel song. The results are less than satisfactory. The show is a week away and I still haven't won tickets, AND if I have to listen to Rod Stewart one more time I'm tossing the car radio out the window.

So the moral of the story is six weeks of listening to Lite FM is fine, but seven will drive you nuts.

Let me get this straight, you listen to LiteFM for six weeks and have the nerve to complain about my jokes...?
