Josh Groban and I
I went to this guy's concert on Wednesday night.
With mostly strangers. When I should have been in class. Until late at night.
Does that make going to a Josh Groban concert sound cool and dangerous? Well, cool does not control me, so there.
In any case, my new acquaintances from MIT and I, and all the other retired couples there, had a lovely time. I'm not so much a fan of the newest CD, but he sang a lot of the old stuff. And Josh's a pretty hilarious guy. A real dork. A funny, gorgeous dork with the voice of a god. We're soul mates.
And it was HI-larious how the second Josh came out onstage the audience lit up with the lights of dozens of little phones taking pics. Look Bob, see that little dot..no, over...to the right, kind of longish...yeah! That's Josh! I thought I would die he was so close.
The guys from MIT were all in an acapella group called the choralleries. They were remarkably like the guys in my high school choir: odd voices, making up songs, inside jokes, drama drama drama.
I do nooot miss that.
Except these boys seemed a little afraid to talk to me. There are girls at MIT, I'm fairly sure? Like, more than the two that I met personally?
Notes on Josh Groban concert etiquette: I don't care if the song is your favorite of all time or how much the spirit moves you, do NOT sing along.
