So, here is a fact you may not know about me. I love the Police. And Sting. I found them a little bit late. The Police broke up when I was 11. But it's better late than never. In high school, I would listen to "King of Pain" and "Message in a Bottle" with its poignant description of alienation in modern society and think that the Police were writing just about me. I took my enthusiasm with me to college where I was promptly dubbed "Sting" by my sorority.
So, when my mom called to tell me that the Police were opening the Grammys. Well....you can imagine my reaction. I don't care for the Grammys but you can bet I was sitting on the couch quivering with anticipation at 8pm. I placed a bet with Gary on what the Police would play. I had $10 on "Roxanne." Gary countered with "DeDoDoDo." Foolish man! Never go in against a Police fan when money is on the line!
Gary has since promised me that if the Police actually do a tour (which is a rumor I would love to come true) that we will go.
De do do do indeed.
(I am sorry for the lack of Freebies. I combed the internet this weekend but only found sketchy ones. I'll keep looking!)
