Kid And Other Things That Rock
Last Saturday, I was among the sold out crowd for the Kid Rock concert at Comerica Park in downtown Detroit. Kid Rock awesomed all over the stage! He performed punk rock that he had mixed with the hip-hop, which got the crowd higher than the treetops, so we all wanna roll with the Kid Rock. (Yes, that should sound familiar because I’m paraphrasing the lyrics from his song Forever). Sammy Hagar had opened for Kid Rock but his set was cut short when the sky roiled with thick, ominous clouds. It had truly looked at one point like Gozer the Gozerian was coming back to claim Detroit (Sorry, I had to throw that Ghostbuster reference in there because it had looked exactly like a scene from the movie.) Anyway, Sammy left the stage and then it rained for about an hour while eerie, yellow lightning splashed across the skyline. The crowd from the outfield was herded up to the first level and prodded like cattle in a mass of sweaty, wet bodies. We thought at one point that it was all over but the mooing when the sky cleared and everyone rushed back to their seats. At that time, like I had mentioned before, Kid Rock awesomed for the sold out crowd.
I spent Sunday recovering from Saturday night, but it’s not from what you think. I had worn 4-inch heels to the concert and my toes resembled Vienna sausages with deep red nail polish. (Yes, that was ill advised. Where were you when I was getting ready?) So I practiced x-treme planking all day until my feet felt better. (I’m getting really good at planking, you should see the way I can just lay around for hours—I know, it’s a gift. BTW, I’m referring to the Tom Green kind of planking, not the yoga fit-n-healthy kind of planking.)
Then on Monday, my book posted for sale on amazon.com! (And that my friends ROCKS!) You can find Inescapable at this link: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=amy+bartol&x=0&y=0
If you happen to buy one, maybe you could also add a customer comment to the site (and maybe you could make it positive because, that too, would rock!). Thank you. - Amy
