Springsteen, Neck Pain and a Huge Doggie Dump

Monday night was a night of nights for a lot of reasons.

For the first time since I was a teenager, I saw a concert at Nassau Coliseum. It was also my first Bruce Springsteen show, so that was something. Our little crew consisted of me, Liz, my dad, my sister Alison and her friend Clara.

Well … I’m not a huge Springsteen fan to start with, but he has a bunch of songs I like, and I’ve always heard that he brings house down. I’m here to say that if you’re a fan, Bruce lives up to hisMonday night was a night of nights for a lot of reasons.

For the first time since I was a teenager, I saw a concert at Nassau Coliseum. It was also my first Bruce Springsteen show, so that was something. Our little crew consisted of me, Liz, my dad, my sister Alison and her friend Clara.

Well … I’m not a huge Springsteen fan to start with, but he has a bunch of songs I like, and I’ve always heard that he brings house down. I’m here to say that if you’re a fan, Bruce lives up to his reputation. His band absolutely rocks, and he has boundless energy, for any age. He just goes non-stop of pure rockin intensity.

However, if you’re not a fan, his show can feel like three …. long … hours ….

Very. Long.

In total he played about four songs that I knew, and at one point went almost two hours between them. I tried to get into it, but it wasn’t easy.

As the third hour was wrapping up we decided to leave a few minutes early to beat the traffic. On our way into the aisle, Liz’s foot goes right out from underneath her and [i]WHAM WHAM WHAM WHAM WHAM WHAM[/i]. She goes down about 10 stairs, on her back.

So then, after we get her on her feet and down to the main level, she realizes that she dropped her cell phone, and then has to go back up there to get it. Fun

Liz was able to track it down fairly quick, and then we drove back to Queens OK. Fine. But when we get home around Midnight, turns out that Simon took a huge dump by the back door, so we had that going for us. He was also so hyper to see us, jumping up and down like crazy, that I unfortunately half to pin him to ground so he would chill long enough for me to attach his leash.

And there’s more.

I take him from his walk, and finally get off to bed. When I woke up this morning I had such a bad strain in my neck that I could barely turn to my right, and had to schedule an emergency chiropractor visit.

All in all it was quite a night. Bruce wasn’t really my thing, but it was an experience I’ll never forget.
