A few days ago, I won some tickets to a concert tonight off of Twitter. After asking six people to go (five of whom I knew to be fans) and no one being able to or wanting to go, it's turned in to a "fuck it, treat yo self" night in which I will sell the extra ticket and pocket the cash or give it away to some nice stranger. Here's who couldn't go:
  1. Friend who is out of town for work.
  2. Friend who dislikes the band.
  3. Friend whose in-laws are visiting this weekend and whose wife would kill him if he went.
  4. Friend whose mom died last summer and today is her birthday so their family is getting together tonight to honor her memory.
  5. Friend who is getting married next weekend and has too much stuff to do before the wedding.
  6. Friend going to the show on a date.
