...but I can't be as happy about it as I should be.
Let's start with the...well...delicate side:
As most of you know, my girlfriend left me at the end of october after 9,5 years. I really suffered badly, but I'm somewhat better now. Nevertheless, I told her we shouldn't have any contact at all because that makes it easier for me to get a grip and get my life back on track.
Well, when I returned home after I spent my birthday in England last week, I found a letter of her in my mailbox. It said:
"Dear Christian, I'm sure you'll find someone to accompany you to this. Happy 30th birthday, I really hope you are well."
And the present was:
Two tickets with floor admission for the Big Four in July in Germany, 80 Euros each...
I'm still somewhat shocked...I mean, I'll gladly take the tickets, but it still feels really weird.
Just letting you know.
Well, I'll definitely go to the concerts and will post some pics afterwards, but it's still 2,5 months away wink.gif

Not only did your exgirlfriend pop up unexpectedly, you're gonna have some old friends that you haven't seen in a while show up from out of nowhere once they find out you got those tickets wink.gif

It'll be even weirder if the only thing we're wearing is one black sock and a donut ph34r.gif

Yeah, the only thing that could make that even weirder is if Christian opens the door and still invites us in ! laugh.gif

Congrats! Should be a killer show! A really nice gift too, but yeah, that would have hit me sideways as well?
