Today's Demi Lovato/ David Archuleta Crisis: or How I Singlehandedly Saved the World!!
Okay, maybe not the world. Maybe only my little corner of the world of my daughter and I.
We had won tickets to see Demi Lovato and David Archuleta tomorrow at the Taj Mahal Casino in Atlantic City. I was on top of the mommy world until today's rapid descent into mommy hell. All the plans were made and my daughter invited one of her friends to spend the weekend with us to see the show. All was right with the world..... okay our world.
Then the phone call from my sister Jaymie.
"Did you hear the news"
"The concert has been rescheduled to November 1st due to scheduling conflicts"
How could it be? Scheduling conflicts? This weekend? No....anything but that! Demi and David must go on! Real teenage pop stars created by television always go on with the show, no matter what! Don't they?
Now what was I to do? I quickly surmised that indeed, even if they were not professional enough to go on with the show, I would make good on my word. I would take the girls anyway and make the best of it.
My daughter, when told of this tragedy, begged me to try and get Demi and David to change their minds and when that didn't seem possible, said, with an audible chuckle," There's still shopping at the mall in Juicy Couture, isn't there?"
This one is going to cost me!!
Drats to you Demi and David!
But, then again I did singlehandedly save the world today, didn't I?
