So one of the #23til23 challenges I was given was to go to a sporting event.
I was also challenged to meet more celebs.
As a surprise for V’s birthday, I broke down and got us tickets to a Devils game. She’s a huuuuge fan and I knew it would be a great surprise for her. It also helped that I know nothing about sports. I kept pretending I thought the Devils were a basketball team so that she wouldn’t suspect I had gotten tickets to a Devils game for her. (I think she genuinely thought I thought the Devils were a basketball team.)
A few weeks after I purchased the hockey tickets, I found out that I had the opportunity to meet Lance Bass (former N’SYNC band member) and make my 90’s girl dreams come true. I was super excited about this possibility, until it hit me about 2 weeks ago that my opportunity to meet Lance Bass was at the exact same time as the hockey game.
After a brief bit of hem-hawing, I realized something very important: my relationship with my girlfriend matters more to me than my relationship with a 90’s boyband member. My girlfriend’s happiness totally trumped Lance Bass.
V ended up being totally surprised, and, to my surprise, I had a lot of fun at the game. I actually (gasp) enjoyed being at a sporting event! The Devils lost, but I won.
Happy birthday, V. Eat your heart out, Lance Bass.
