It was the bottle-me-up moment of the night … that one special moment you want to bottle up and save for those crappy days ahead. I caught it.
I caught The Blue Fever … and it was sweet.
My son first saw parts of their show on television … and then decided it was DVR-Worthy. Everyday-of-the-week-DVR-worthy. This is where the craze started. Everyday after his sister’s nap we heard the ba-donka-donk song followed by Luke Skywalker musical sabers swishing around and an eclectic xylophone with great tunes.
Apparently Ellen DeGeneres was giving away tickets to her entire audience, unfortunately for my son, we were sitting on the couch watching. We were nowhere near the studio audience and all the originality that is Blue Man. But it didn’t matter that we only saw it through television, he had caught The Blue Fever as soon as he had seen it.
The unique intensity and humor of the performance came through and it was something he wanted to witness. And the funny thing was that everything about it was an adventure for him from the printing of the tickets, to the bus ride, to packing the picnic basket and then to finally arriving to the outdoor show. It was something to look forward to, something to get excited about. All the little steps that I often take for granted when going to a concert or event took new meaning through my son’s eyes. They became moments of excitement and anticipation. In this Sandbox List Adventure, I realized that some things are better when living through the perspective of my five-year old … things like The Blue Fever.
