It all started on Thursday night when JB tweeted the location & time of a Road Dogs game for the following day in New Jersey. Julie and Katie had the day off on Friday, Katie wasn't going to a show, and I was feeling like I needed to see them or my head would explode. Before we knew it it was 1am Sarah and I were in the car on the way to pick Katie up, by 5am Julie was loading her stuff in the car [and I was driving off without her- "JULIE'S NOT IN THE CAR?!?!?"], and by 6am we were all on the road to Camden, New Jersey. We did not get lost once. We only stopped twice to pee. We did not hit any traffic. We pulled into Camden at 11:30, found a parking spot at the stadium like 50 feet from the enterance, walked in, got great seats behind the dugout and the game started. If anything had taken up just 20 minutes of our time, if I had left 20 minutes later, if we hadn't met Julie at the park & ride instead of her house, if we had hesitated in just getting in the car and going for it, we would not have made the game. The game was SO MUCH FUN. Jonas sing alongs, MOTOWN PHILLY, the closest thing I'll get to dancing with Kev, Garbo wearing his glasses, Kevin's jazz hands, Flawless' underpants, Tonto JUMP ON IT, excessive amounts of bubble gum, Ferris Bueller, orange gatorade, Nick being extremely sweaty and tan, tightie blackies, etc. Said hello to Christa Black (AH;SLDAGK;DSLGAK OMG :]), talked to John Taylor (omfg omfg omfg), talked to Mama for a minute, chatted it up and had a super awkward but HILARIOUS conversation with Papa about the new single, and shook Nick's hand. Done.
After the game we drove to PA, talked in fake Kevin voices, re-named nick John Adams, got gas, got sandwiches, water, gatorade, slushies, etc and decided to get the hell out of Camden. Slept for 20 minutes at a rest stop on the highway and drove to Wyckoff. Katie, Julie, and Sarah had never been so we stopped by the old house, went to the playground at their old elementary school, picked out our future houses ("OH MY GOD THERE'S A CUL DE SAC WE CAN ROLLERBLADE AND DRAW WITH CHALK AND DRIVE LIKE THISSSSSSSS"), and proceeded to Rita's. By this time it was about 8pm and we still had 6 hours between us and a bed to crash in but we didn't care-- we needed Rita's. Best decision ever. Filled our bellies with 835048 gelatis and finally got in the car and headed home. 30 minute break at a rest stop in Connecticut. Made it to Framingham at around 1:30am on Saturday to pick up Julie's car and head to her apartment. It wasn't until this point that driving became almost impossible. I was hallucinating; reflections on the road became people rowing boats, the car in front of me looked like a giant human head, things started sounding weird. Katie and I turned on the AC full blast, turned up the radio as loud as it would go and the first song that came on was Higher Love. The second song that came on was Radio Radio by Elvis Costello. These songs and the ones that followed on the 40 minute drive to Julie's apartment disolved any doubt in my mind that a) we were supposed to be there and b) there was something getting us home that night. It was incredible, and there were so many moments like this that I know I'm forgetting like everything. It was just AMAZING.
