Each Thursday we’re taking Instagram to the streets. And to this blog. Remembering the good ol’ days – cause if any good therapist will tell you, it’s best to live in the past.
Just like Rafiki said in the “Lion King” – It is time. The ACL Festival is here. Well, it’s been here actually. Nick’s fall break is here. Weekend one took place just a few days ago and weekend two is a day away and boy are we ready. This year, we actually are ready – we have 3 day passes. Barring we survive the first two days, we will be there all weekend. Like I’ve said before, it’s a marathon not a sprint. Good thing we’ve never run a marathon before. This picture here was taken on that third and final day last year, and what a glorious day it was. It’s worth mentioning that although we both look like goofs, Adam more so than me. I don’t always look like a goof. And it took a lot of courage and peer pressure by my bigger brother for me to wear his dumbass Coca-Cola polar bear shirt. Especially since he told the same joke over and over all day – “Hope the polar bears don’t melt, it’s a little too hot out here for them!” Ha. Good one. Somehow, someway he usually convinces me to wear some goofy clothes to all the shows we go to. Who knows what I’ll be wearing this year. We’ll just have to wait and see what dumbass clothes he has this time.
The reason we are wearing Longhorns shirts, (sorry Mom) and the reason we are wearing such big grins is because this was the Saturday of ACL last year. It was going to be our first day at the ACL festival. We were to go watch the Red River shootout downtown, then take in all that was the ACL festival. Notice how I keep say was, and were? This WAS a beautiful morning waking up to a nice cool class of home-brew sangria at 10am before heading down to ACL only to get turned away due to a “fake” ticket bought on Craigslist by Gavin. You better hope I don’t see you at the hamburger stand this year bud. Did I mention after we got turned away we had to walk 2 miles back to the car in the pouring rain? Yeah. That happened. All is well though – that will not be happening this year. Oh we are going to get wet, forecast isn’t looking too hot. But we are getting turned away this year folks. The beer and wine will be flowing and we will be glowing (?) with happiness all 3 days at ACL this year. No Longhorns shirts this year. Promise.
