Last night, my roommate, Lena, camped out outside of Bull Moose in Bangor. This crazy kid stayed out there all night in hopes of getting a five dollar ticket to see Mumford & Sons. We were all pretty skeptical about her chances of getting these tickets. There were eighteen to give away at this price, each person in line could buy up to two tickets, and there were already nine people outside the store when she decided to get in line. Realistically, we thought her chances were slim.
Flash forward to the next morning. It was about 8:00 a.m. when I woke up and saw that Lena had yet to return home. I fell back asleep and started having a really weird dream.
In this dream, a group of friends were hanging out in my room with me. Lena entered the scene with a look of defeat on her face. In this dream, she did not get the tickets. We all sat around and started discussing our favorite Mumford & Sons songs (or something along those lines). Everyone was drinking Blue Moon forties. At one point, I turned to my other roommate, Tag, and referred to the band as “Mother & Sons.” In the dream, this was the funniest thing that we had ever heard. We started laughing hysterically. Then, Tag’s boyfriend came in and took all of the nail polishes off of my nightstand.
Next thing I knew, I was wide awake and Lena was in the room. Did she get the tickets? Yes, she did! Looks like her parking lot camping trip paid off.
It’s only fitting that today, on this Tuesday Tunage, I post a Mumford & Sons song. In the dream, I probably told the room that my favorite song of theirs is “Awake My Soul”, because it is. So, here you go:
Also, are Blue Moon forties even real? If not, they should be.
