Who Needs Friends When You Have Your Mom?

Last night I saw the band Gaelic Storm. You should check them out. Seriously amazing. Trust me. I only lie to you all about half the time. Not only are they extremely talented on every instrument I can imagine, but they were hilarious as well.

My initial plan for the evening was to stay in and attempt to finish Stranger in a Strange Land when my mom called me to see if I had any plans for the evening. She wanted to go see them play and offered to buy my ticket. I didn't really feel like going but I was a good daughter and didn't make my mom go by herself. And it was free. That's like a two-fer.

I even owned it. I saw some of my friends and was all like:
Yeah, I'm rockin' it out with my mommy. Whatcha gonna do about it?!

As a side note: Holy Mother of God I didn't know my mom loved bagpipes so much. I thought she was going to pee her pants when one of the band members brought them out. She started squealing and jumping up and down like a teenie-bopper at a Beatle's concert.

I did learn a couple things last night:

The first was told to me by my mother.
Kara you would never make it in an Irish pub.

To which I retorted,
I went to Finn McCool's in New Orleans and they were so impressed with my Guinness chugging skills that they took a picture of me.

So there.

And I have wooden medals from every drinking contest I entered.

How dare she not be proud of me.

Secondly, I think I may be a shame to that woman's vagina. I don't know how I came out of there not having the concert skills she has. She was all about the cheering, clapping, singing along, ect. I was all about swaying slightly and tapping my hands on my thighs. I learned this one through shame and observation.

Thank God I inherited the same aging skills that she has. I may never be the life of a concert, but I will still be damn pretty when I'm in my fifties.


  1. i am not aware there are such things like concert skills

  2. Concert crowd skills? Maybe she was disappointed that you weren't reacting the same way she was.

  3. Yes there is concert skills. I didn't realize that until I started going to concerts in Calgary. Shit these youngin's don't know how to rock it and appreciate the gig.

  4. Drinking is a much more valuable skill than concert skills, especially if you won't look like you're 80 years old after years of doing it.

  5. iwas all like just reading along and then bam! vagina...i nearly totally forgot the rest of the post and...

    wait..what? there are concert skills...

    and they do not involve drinking and drugs? say it ain't so...

  6. The only concerts my mom ever wanted me to escort her to involved Gospel music, so...of course you know she went alone. You're such a good daughter.

  7. Yes there are concert skills. And no, Kara does not have them. Too bad for her because although she undoubtedly enjoys music differently than those of us with concert skills, I am pretty sure I have a lot more fun than she does. Then again I have seen her dance a jig or two or break out in song at a concert, or in a bar with the juke box jumping, or at a house party, or if it is just me and her listening to good music, but only if the "mood" hits her just right.

  8. great post and happy st. patrick's day
