I bought a ticket to see one of my favourite-ever bands, Hey Rosetta! (the exclamation point is part of their name, but also the punctuation mark that best describes how I feel when I listen to them).
I checked out their website to confirm the time and place and discovered their (very attractive) lead singer is sick! Poor guy! So they’re not playing after all.
My quandary is whether I go and see the headliner, Hot Hot Heat — who I’m sure will put on a stellar high-energy show, but aren’t one of my favourite-ever bands — or just call it a night and get my beauty rest.
On one hand: I have to be up at 6:30 tomorrow, I’d be going to the show alone and I’m not sure Hot Hot Heat is worth it without one of my favourite-ever bands opening for them.
On the other hand: I’m single and I could meet cute boys, I’m antsy and want to dance, I’ve picked out a cute outfit, and I’m not sure Hot Hot Heat isn’t worth it.
I guess I’m really afraid of missing out on opportunities…to meet someone, specifically. I want to be in the right place at the right time, and I know that isn’t at home watching America’s Next Top Model (guilty pleasure). What’s the worst that can happen if I go? I stand awkwardly by myself with my arms crossed and don’t have fun?
Fuck it. I’m going.
