Ok I have a hideous confession to make.
And the only reason I’m telling the world… is because I know there are OTHERS LIKE ME LIVING WITH THIS SHAMEFUL SECRET.
I have a thing for Michael Buble.
I know. It’s so lame. It’s such a boring cliche – “30 something housewife likes Michael Buble”.
The fact is, it’s JUST NOT COOL to admit to someone else that you actually like listening to… disgustingly sweet, completely sappy, unrealistically romantic, lovey-dovey music about teenaged, starry-eyed love.
Which is why I’ve never really admitted it to anyone. It’s just embarrassing.
But when I found out that Michael Buble was coming to my hometown for a performance at the Sandalford Winery, I soooooo badly wanted to see him.
However, I had no one to see it with.
My husband was out of the question.
And the result of NOT ADMITTING THAT I LIKED HIS MUSIC TO ANYONE, was that I didn’t know anyone else who liked him, or would pay money to see him.
I had a problem… Do I really go and see Michael Buble BY MYSELF? Haha I didn’t know which part of that is more sad.
So I decided that since I was too embarrassed to solicit a concert partner, I wouldn’t never be able to see him live in concert. It was the fate of my own embarrassment.
That is. Until I got a phone call from one of my closest girl friends.
In fact. She didn’t even call me. She texted me!
It was kind of an “out there” stab-in-the-dark question, wondering if I wanted to pay $250 to see Buble in concert.
Haha. Of course I said YES.
So now that I’m going… I decided to suck it in and just tell everyone. I even say it with a little girly squeal for added effect.
“I’M GOING TO SEE MICHAEL BUBLE IN CONCERT! EEEEEEEEEE!!!”
And oh look, suddenly every chick I talk to is a Michael Buble Fan.
What do you know. Isn’t that funny.
My husband thinks I’m mad. He doesn’t see any appeal at all.
One evening, after we discovered yet ANOTHER of my girlfriends was a fan, we tried to explain to him in an incoherent, babbling, blushing girly way…
“He’s smooth, sincere, arrogant, confident, puppy dog vulnerable, a man who sweeps you off your feet, a knight in shining armour… and he’s just so unashamed about being a romantic. And most of all, he’s a croooooner…” haha we laughed ourselves silly that night.
I can’t wait.
Me and Michael.
