Nashville First Grade Christmas PageantI'm not going to say stuff like this only happens in Nashville. It probably happens all the time in L.A. and New York and Paris. But I doubt it happens much in Johnson City or Des Moines.
Scene: First Grade Christmas Pageant. Visiting with another kid's dad --
Me: Wow, you just got back , huh? What were you doing in London?
Other Kid's Dad: We went to see Led Zeppelin. It was great.
Me: You went to see Zeppelin?! You bastard!
OKD: Well, I know John Paul Jones pretty well. He called and invited us. What was I supposed to do?
Me: (Notices some tall dude in the corner. What's that guy's name? Oh, yeah, Joe Nichols. I didn't know his kid went to school here. turns back) What were you supposed to do? Call me, that's what! I would have killed to see Zeppelin . . .
