As most of you know, I am a huge Brooks & Dunn fan. They have been together 20 years, and now they are calling it quits. For some reason this is very sad to me. I tie my emotions to places and things a lot. The first date, if you want to call it that, that the M-Word and I went on was to a Brooks & Dunn concert. And so just the fact that I'm going to see them in the same location that we saw them in together, and then I know I will never see them again is saddening to me.
Just to clear something up right quick, I'm going to see Brooks & Dunn in Spokane, Washington where a friend of mine lives. But I am also going to see Brooks & Dunn in Dallas in May. I'll never forget the time that I took the M-Word, and we were very close to the stage, and Ronnie Dunn uses a drumstick to hit the cowbell during the song "Rock My World Little Country Girl" and then throws the drumstick to the crowd. Well, I caught that drumstick for the M-Word. I wonder if she still has it? I wonder if she even thinks about things like that anymore? Do things like that ever cross your mind? Or are they just distant memories that she tries to forget? I have not seen her or talked to her in a very long time. But the last time I did see her she was absolutely beautiful! But she was still emotionally unavailable to me, and that's been the story of our life.
What does Brooks & Dunn have to do with Little One? Oddly enough Little One and I never did get to see Brooks & Dunn together. We saw Shania five times. But just never made it to Brooks & Dunn. And that is something I always wanted to share with her. If you don't know, I will tell you but Little One is getting a divorce. By now she might already be divorced. In fact, Little Buddy ran into her in a bar with another guy other than her husband, so she really isn't wasting any time getting back to her old ways. I don't care what anyone says, I do think that we had magical times together.
Sometimes people don't realize how lonely it really can get. It appears that I have this fantastic lifestyle where I get to travel constantly and go to exotic places and meet all these unique people. But at the end of the day sometimes you want to just lay down and be close to someone you love, and you know loves you back.
