If you know what this stands for then your early teenage years were filled with bliss.
The first boy band, ever...weren't they?
New Kids on the Block!
You know you're singing "Hangin' Tough" to yourself right about now.
It's okay to admit it.
Well, maybe not publicly.
So why am I doing just that?
Because it's Secret Mommy-Hood Confession Saturday.
The day you can admit to all that embarrasses you.
The thing is...there's more to it than just loving on Donnie, Jordan, Joey, Danny and Jon.
Jon was my favorite.
Today? He's openly gay (not that there's anything wrong with that--you just read that in Jerry Seinfeld's voice, and you know it). Who knew?
Anyhow...I was so in love with these guys, Step by Step through their career. Do you see what I did there? HA!
I was listening to a local radio station one night when what I thought I heard was, "Call in now to WIN FREE tickets!"
And I did.
When someone answered the phone I started weeping with excitement. I WON!
Little did I know, I had just dialed the phone number to Ticket Master. Yeah...buy your tickets and pay a $50 service fee, just for breathing.
I handed over the phone to my brother who just couldn't let me down. And so he purchased tickets that day for me for Christmas I think it was.
I'm such a dork.
