Whoaaa…listen to the (bargain) music

July 14, 2014

I like me a good bargain.  It gives me a sense of satisfaction that I hunted and gathered with excellence, that I conquered Mt. Retail and lived to shop another day.

I really ought to get a special cape for my skills.  It only seems right to have a uniform of sorts.

Don’t get me wrong—I’m not cheap.  I like well-made things, beautiful things, things intelligently and creatively designed.  I believe those kinds of things are worth money.  If I don’t have the money, then I will do without.

It probably won’t surprise you to learn that I get Groupon offers in my email.  Every day there’s something new on sale.  You gotta admit, that’s kind of exciting.

I have to say, however, that I’m not sure how I feel about today’s offer.

Today’s Featured Deal is a ticket to see Peter Frampton and The Doobie Brothers in concert together for $22.50, discounted from $43.30.  Yes, you read that correctly.  Peter Frampton.  The Doobie Brothers.

Um…does Peter Frampton know he’s now Groupon-able?

And when did The Doobie Brothers become the sort of band you need a discount to make worth seeing?

Is this better or worse than being consigned to playing Mississippi casinos?

I’m feeling vaguely distressed and confused, in a baby boomer sort of way…

    Doobie Brothers?? How old are these guys now?? Maybe that is the reason for the Groupon. Their “USE BY” date has expired.

      I’m actually a little nervous to find out what age demographic is gonna show up to that shindig, and even more nervous to find out that I just might fit it! Haha!
