With one week to go, the radio played country music festival commercials non-stop. Then two days before the show, I heard a new commercial with the news that tickets were still available for Austinites only. After weeks of coming to terms with the fact I wasn't going, I couldn't believe it. I searched for the best seats I could find, but everything was ridiculously expensive or had a terrible view. I waited in hopes that someone would sell their tickets for less, but it was just the opposite. In a final moment of desperation, I drove to the box office in hopes of buying tickets, but the seats were terrible and out of my price range. I sat in my car thinking it through, but I couldn't justify the purchase. As I turned around to back out of the parking space, a country radio station truck pulled up beside me. I stopped the car and call me a creeper, but I watched a woman step out of the truck and walk up to the box office to ask for her tickets. She was standing around waiting for the tickets when I decided to take a leap of faith. I walked up and asked if the station was giving away anymore tickets. She said the contests were over, but that she'd be glad to give me a couple tickets. My stomach dropped. She mentioned that they were all single seats and probably terrible seats, but at least I'd be there for the show. At this point, all I could do was agree. A couple moments later, they brought out her tickets. She pulled out the tickets and said enjoy the show! All I can say is I was at the right place at the right time, literally.

Sometimes it takes a leap of faith. I may be quiet and shy, but asking a question goes a long way. The worst answer you'll receive is no, and that's kinda where you started, am I right? When in doubt, ask a question, you never know what will happen. So here's to the beginning of a new week and the end of a long month. Happy Monday, fellow dreamers!
