So I’m at Groupon’s summer party on Friday afternoon. There’s free beer, free food, free giant Jenga… everyone’s having a good time. And then I wander over to Jarrett, who I haven’t chatted to in a while, to say hi.
A few minutes later, and I’ve been swept up into the ‘let’s go score tickets to see Billy Joel at Wrigley Field!’ group.
Oh, and it was awesome.
I mean, I can’t call myself a big Billy Joel fan – I could name about three of his songs. But it was still undeniably awesome. And at one point they played that cute little Take Me Out to the Ball Game jingle, and everyone sung along in their enthusiastic American way, and I felt like I was in the right place at the right time.
Carolyn Regan, Sue Buxton, Ashley Phillips, Jarrett Sidaway, Jonathan Jenkins liked this post.
Not only did Dominic Self get a slice of Americana, but we got to enjoy some British “perspective” re. our back-taxes
