The Police

Heck, I could have just bought 2 tickets online for pretty good seats at the final Police show in their reunion tour (and supposedly final tour forever). One level above floor level, to front of stage to left of stage as you look at it, 6th row, aisle seats. Really good seats, but man oh man $359 each, plus $18.50 handling fee each. I was sorely tempted if only because I was thinking I could sell one and still go and almost have paid for both by selling the one, or sell both and have some decent profit. Then again, I am a wussie and don't want to take the chance of getting skunked and holding two tickets, without getting any of the money back. Of course, I could always take my wife, but I doubt she would appreciate the show, or the fact that I would have to go into hock to buy the tickets.

Maybe I should check out a show before the final show.

All the best,
Glenn B

Ok any comment I had died with my laughter at the word 'wussie'. I am having flashbacks to High School and study hall...Glenn you crack me up...

My thoughts...keep saying that you are buying things...gun here this there, and save the money and take your wife off for a fabulous vacation...as the kids are all out...you deserve this:) Or she does?:) or you both do!!

Jen,

The wife heard how much the tickets are going for and almost fell over. I am not buying them. I am saving though, and will buy a new gun sooner or later; but of course I'll take her out sometime before then now and again either for dinner or a show. We don't get out much together that is for sure. We may be due a broadway play, she seems to like them a lot, and luckily I can usually get a good discount on the tickets either through American Express or through regular discount channels from the ticket brokers.

Right now, as in within a day or two, I ahve to pay my son'sfirst semester's tuition for college. Oh joy.

As for wussie, I guess I dated myself with that one.

All the best,
GB
