(I know, it’s Saturday, not Friday. Forgive me. I spent Friday evening emptying out Hayley’s bedroom which is now in the hall, kitchen, and living room so we could start Project: Switch the Rooms. Joy!)
There was no doubt in my mind as to what I would use for this week’s flashback video. Hayley’s birthday is today, the 20th, so of course I had no intentions of going out anywhere without her. However, that being said, if it wasn’t her birthday today, I would be heading to downtown Montreal this evening. Why? Sad or not, it would be so I could relive a bit of fan mania from my youth – I’d be seeing New Kids on the Block in concert tonight. I was all set to buy myself a ticket, even if I ended up going alone, and then I saw the damn date.
I’ll live. I’m not sure how well it would stand up to my memory of their first time in Montreal, which was my first concert ever. I screamed myself hoarse, like Donnie Wahlberg might hear me over the other thousands of people who were also screaming.
I don’t really have one favorite song by them, I loved most of them, but I chose this one in particular since it features my homeboy (see what I did there? All old skool?) Donnie so heavily.
Hang tough, yo!
