Two years ago today, I got in the car in sweatpants, like 3 shirts on and no bra. There's a really good chance that I was wearing house shoes, too, but maybe not, to head over the mountain and see @sammyhagar and The Circle at @harrahscherokee .
Of course I took a hairbrush with me, along with my concert clothes and makeup but Sammy didn't get to see that side of me.
There was a terrible traffic jam for some odd reason and we were worried we'd be late so we tried to take an alternate route. The gps lied and the alternate route ended at a gate on a mountain. Just wasted 15 more minutes. When we got back down the mountain traffic was suddenly moving, like it had never been stopped in the first place. Yay for us!
We arrived at the casino and I had to make a decision out of nowhere about staying in a different tower than I had originally booked. It was a very small detail but I'm indecisive about ketchup so I owed it at least sixty seconds of analyzing and weighing my options.
Cut to decision made, keys in our hands and off to the elevators of our new tower.
I push the button for the first elevator and while waiting, the elevator next to it opens and out walks Sammy Hagar, one of my lifelong idols. I'd been waiting for this moment since I was a little girl. I've paid big bucks (that I could not afford) to be on the front row at shows and or backstage events that didn't include the band, with just the hopes of an autograph from him, or any member of VH.
The stars lined up perfectly on this evening for him to step off an elevator I was waiting for.
I threw my bag in the floor and began frantically (through my little fangirl tears) searching for the Sharpies I had just purchased along with the copies of photos of Sammy and @mad_anthony_bassman that I had taken in 2004 in hopes I could get them signed on this night from the stage. I was too much of a mess. My little 75 year old mom was crying, my husband was laughing, I couldn't get the Sharpies opened and couldn't locate the photos. But, I got this hug and these pics! And later during the show, I got my pics signed by both Sammy and Mike! So really, 2 dreams one night ❤
Now I need a pic w/ Mike!
