I also let “Strange days indeed” know. He would like to keep his name private.
OMG!!!! I’M GOING TO SEE MIKE TOMORROW!!!!!
18 October 2019
It’s time to get excited. Well… I’m excited since yesterday morning. It’s very last minute but Mike is coming to Dam. Maybe he knew for a while, but we didn’t.
I first have to work today. It’s going to be a long day, but I’m sure it will be worth it.
At work, during my lunch break I heard from the venue, that Fredo is no longer locked up, I let Mike know and Mike will close the evening, so he is the headliner. He will be on late. Still don’t know what time, but it will be late.
I finish at 5:30. It’s time to hurry home. I arrive at 6. Time for dinner. I couldn’t eat. I’m a bit nervous or something like that. At 7 we bring Roos to bed and at 7:45 I leave.
I take the bus and train towards Amsterdam. I go to Starbucks and wait for Ozzy to come over. He’s in Amsterdam already, with work.
After about 30 minutes he arrives, we walk towards Bitterzoet. It’s not open yet, so we go to the pub across the Street. We have a few drinks. At 11 this pub closes.
Before we left we spoke to a guy. He’s also playing at Bitterzoet tonight. Sandor is his name. He gave us the timetable. Mike will be on at 1:20. Doesn’t sound like he’s the headliner but this is better.
Time to go to FEBO first, I am hungry now. I had a Frikandel speciaal.
Then we go to Bitterzoet. It’s still pretty quiet. Black mamba was on stage. Not bad!! After her Ray Fuego came on, omg terrible!!! Luckily he didn’t play to long. Then this Sandor guy came on. Not bad! Not bad at all!
I was very tired. So I kept yawning, sorry Sandor, it wasn’t you. Then it was time for Fredo.
Then Mike arrived. I got 3 kisses (that’s what we do in Holland). Mike brought Ping Pong. Mike and I had a little chat. Mike is leaving to Walt Disney World at 6am 😭🙀❤️ He couldn’t make me more jealous! He doesn’t have space in his suitcase 🙈
Mike said: “Hey”. He sounded like he was really pleased to see us. Ping said to Mike: “Mate, he (Ozzy) needs a photo mate”. Then Mike replied: “No man, they are gang!” Then Ping took a few photos of us anyway.
Then we boxed each other.
“Wow respect” he said.
Mike said: “Well I’m going to Disney, if you have any tips?” “NO, I have never been to WDW.” I said. Mike replied: “WHAT?!!!!!” “I could help you with Paris but not WDW. That is still a dream for me”. I said. We wished Mike a lot of fun at Disney and a safe flight! and we left.
We walked towards the ferry. Which brought us to Amsterdam Noord. Then we had to walk for about 45 minutes to Ozzy’s car. We drove past Schiphol. We waved at Mike. I got home at 4:30. Ozzy still had to drive home. I wrote the blog in the car.
