I don’t know what I did. And I’m not Catholic, but I’m hoping confession will make the coming penance more palatable. You see, my 11-year-old daughter, Sara, has moved on from Hilary Duff and now listens to some little boy named Teddy Geiger. Amanda, my four-year-old daughter, informed me yesterday that both she and Sara have a crush on “Teddy Tiger.”
Yes, I’m disgusted that my oldest daughter has reached such an age that she’s listening to the modern equivalent of Shaun Cassidy. But I knew that was inevitable. That isn’t the penance.
“Teddy Tiger” will be in concert in OKC on July 15. That’s a couple of days after we’re taking Alex to see Rob Zombie, so there’s really almost no chance of wriggling out of having to take Sara to see this doe-eyed, messy-haired kid who’s making her have thoughts my little girl should never have. And, since Kim endured the Hilary Duff concert a year or so back, she has deemed I have to suffer through this one.
The Charlie Daniels Band also is in concert in OKC that night. So is Jackyl. And Forte. And I’ll spend the day at SoonerCon. But will any of that get me out of this? Nooooooo. Why go see Charlie sing “Long Haired Country Boy” when we can hear Teddy Tiger promise “For You I Will.” Yeah, make eye contact with my baby girl and “For You I Will” plant a boot up yer ass.
Well, enough of that. I don’t want to say anything that will incriminate me when Sara’s future date’s turn up missing their hands.
Speaking of SoonerCon, has anyone heard anything from those folks? Less than two weeks out now and I don’t have a clue about programming, other than I’m part of it. I’m not the only guest author in the dark, either. The Web site says the dealer’s room is sold out, but pretty much all the other updates have to do with gaming.
