Report on the EJ concert

I went to the Elton John concert and it was good. At the last minute I managed to sell two of the tickets and my friend and his two kids came with me to see Sir Elton. Man, that guy plays a mean pinball (piano). He rocked for 2 & 1/2 hours straight. He sang all his best songs and it made for a memorable/expensive experience.
Live and learn.

Calling All Elton John Fans

A while back I got this great idea to buy these Elton John tickets and sell them for a profit. It turns out there are more people who think they could make a profit from Elton John tickets than actual fans who are willing to pay more than face value. I bought 6 tickets thinking I would make anywhere from $50 to $400 profit. The tickets cost me $100 each and here it is the day of the concert and I'm stuck with them and all my friends and family have abandoned me to try and scalp them at the concert.

"That's what you get." Brenda said, "Never again!"

OK, so if I don't sell them I'm picking up 5 homeless friends and we're gonna sing "Sad Songs" together.
