the horrible truth about me and Kenny Rogers…

Confession time babies.  I have to come clean.  Tell you something.  Let it all out.

I want to start with a clean slate with you guys and I don’t see how I can do that without you knowing a little bit of my history.  My upbringing.  Something that scarred me and I’m sure kind of made me who I am today.

While for many people their first concert is a fine and glorious event mine was a thing of nightmares.  My mom and her sister (the super fan) took me to the State Fair.  There in the early hours of the night I was forced (with the screaming teeming masses) to listen to and watch KENNY ROGERS perform live and in person.  Probably in a white polyester suit of some kind.

I’m fairly certain I recall my aunt flinging her panties at the stage.

So now do you have a better idea of what is wrong with me?  Let me repeat that for you:


I think that’s way more viable than the twinkie defense.

    I’d just like to go on record as saying……no there’s really nothing I can say to this. Nothing that will make the image go away. Why? I mean sure, Kenny Rogers was a successful “actor” in films like ‘Six Pack’ and the Gambler. Obvious he was also a successful singer, hell he even had a “successful” chain of chicken restaurants. But I draw the line at polyester suits. How could you ever bring up the horror of polyester suits? Let alone WHITE ones?!?!? What the hell is wrong with you? :)

    My first record was Kenny Rogers’ Greatest Hits… I think my second was Judas Priest. I think the records secretly fought at night.

    Adam: It wasn’t me! It was my AUNT. She and my mom damaged me for life.

    Chris: I was just telling it like it happened.

    Stu: That’s a battle the likes of which the world has never seen. Celebrity death match perhaps?

    Robert: I hope you managed to enjoy the rest of your waffle.

    Everyone else: Thank you for understanding the impact of this horrible event.

    You enjoyed that concert, I have pictures to prove it. However, I wish to believe that you learned restraint at concerts because of that experience. He sang some wonderful love songs no matter what you say!

    But he is no longer a favorite, except when we get out the oldies.
