The year was 2017. People could stand closer than 6 feet, nobody wore a mask, and concerts were all at capacity! It was the before times.

The saga began when my super cool friend invited me to a concert featuring Tesla, Poison, and Def Leppard. Did I mention that I got to go for free?

Then we show up and not only is it free, but the seats were for the fourth row! I've never been so close to a concert in my entire life!

Thus, my mission began. We were in the fourth row, but I was in the 10th seat over. Just out of reach from Bret Michaels, the frontman for Poison. So, I thought I'll ask these kind people in my row if I can scoot closer for the chance to touch Bret Michaels and they obliged. However, getting to touch Bret Michaels proved difficult.

Here is the first attempt.

Did you see how I was denied!?!?!

But I would try again. Sadly, that was filmed but lost somewhere in phone video heaven.

Anyway, the show went on and I was having 'nothing but a good time' and they announced that the next song was going to be their last. This was my last chance!

Did you see it? He touched me!

I was excited that I completed my mission, but what I was surprised about was all the reactions from the concert-goers around me! The whole row was so excited for me! I was getting high fives and fist bumps all the way back to my seat! (So much stranger touching in the before times.)

It really was a team effort. I'd like to thank Section C Row 4 for putting up with me running up and down the aisle. I'd like to thank my friend, Aislinn, for inviting me and getting me these sweet tickets and filming the whole thing! And finally, I'd like to thank Bret Michaels for touching my hand.
