Dream Come True

My friend Linda sent this to me, and I was transported backwards a decade in time.

This girl never would have dreamed what was included in her ticket price.

I had every one of U2's albums, I had several U2 t-shirts, and I had an ENORMOUS poster that covered most of one wall in my bedroom. I even had the sheet music to The Joshua Tree. I can blame classmate Rod for the obsession, because I sat next to him in Computing and he was obsessed with U2 and I was curious what was so great about them so I went and bought Rattle and Hum on cassette. And then it was game on.

If Bono had done this to me in 1989 MY LIFE WOULD HAVE BEEN COMPLETE.
