How My Son Temporarily Lost Consciousness

Last night, at the photography class my son and I are taking together, I mentioned that I would be home very late the next night because I'm going to the Eagles concert a few hours away. That was when he made some comment that went something like, "The Eagles? Mom, they're so old."

That was also the moment I accidentally dropped my heavy camera with the gi-normous zoom lens on his head.

Really. It just slipped.

OMG! How was the concert!? I'm pea green.

Sorry about the camera. And your son.

Disrespectful whippersnapper.

Oooh, you lucky girl. I would love to see them. They are on my short list of shows I haven't been to yet.
My new strategy for music-appreciating harmony is to not have an opinion on anything he likes. If I say I think it is cool (most of what he likes is great), he will stop listening.
I know he secretly enjoys old people music too.
Have fun at the show!!

I hate when things like that happen. Cameras slip all the time, the worlds an imperfect place.

I hope the concert is a good one! Lucky girl!

So did you love it or what? I went when they came here a few months back and posted a blog about it.

I thought they were AWESOME live, but yes, they are old. I also noticed that alot of old people like to see them live.

I was sitting around a bunch of geriatric people still plugged into their life support machines. Many were actively crapping themselves as well. I fit in perfectly as I sat with my 2 huge margarita glasses. What, I figured I'd have one as a back up?!?

Hope you enjoyed them as much as I did.

As for the camera...I hate it when that happens.
