That One Time I Saw Kool & the Gang in MA
Remember when we used to have musicians come to our malls? I will never forget the time that Aaron Carter performed at my local food court in MA. I was only about 8 years old and I somehow pushed my way through all the teenagers to get to the front of the stage.
That was when I wasn't that shy anymore ( I used to be a very shy child). Buckle up, because the story that I am going to tell you will most likely upset you, just as it did my mother.
When I was about 5 years old, my mother took me to go see Kool & the Gang, next to the mall. I was excited to dance, however, it seemed my dance moves did not go unnoticed.
There I was, little me, dancing and just having a good time when all of a sudden the lights shined on me and I was asked to go on stage to join them as they were going to play "Celebration."
As I said, I was shy, so I assume you can figure out what happened next. I said "no."
Honestly, I don't think I have ever upset my mother more than I had at that moment. I personally believe that she just wanted to get on the stage herself. She looked at me like I was crazy for saying no, but I had a bit of stage freight.
I remember wanting to run away from it all, not far, just out of the crowd. Obviously, I couldn't.
I've obviously come a long way from when I was 5. If Kool & the Gang ever came back around, I would definitely get on stage with them this time.
