Impromptu Date to NYC

I hate NYC, and with my hearing loss I hate going to shows, though I tend to do well with music. I went to a classical music concert a few years ago with my boss, and it was very nice. But it's not something I would go out of my way to do, nor would I consider it "fun". I have recently gone as far as saying, "I will NEVER go to NYC for a performance again!"

Then Saturday I went to NYC for a performance.

My boss and her God Son had plans to go see Joe Bonamassa as a late birthday present to him. Then my boss had a migraine, and it was only right that I went with him. I was told this was "Blues and Rock" and I thought "'s one of my fave colors" "I like 'blues'" but I can honestly say it was a very unpleasant experience. I think I am deafer today than I was before, and I do not understand how normal hearing people can go to things like that!!! AGH! Boss' God Son loved it, and fortunately didn't ask me if I enjoyed it because I'm a terrible liar.

On the bright side, I found NYC much more tolerable since I was 1.)a passenger, 2.) didn't have to pay for anything and 3.) didn't have to have a clue where I was or how I was going to get from point A to point B....just followed my date, and it wasn't bad at all :-)

Moral of the story: if you go to NYC, don't expect much, and have someone else do all of the work for you, and you probably won't come home cranky.
