I am not writing this to brag or anything, I am just writing this to share with everyone my good times, and also to remember the good times. These were honestly the best times in my life. I don’t care how many times i meet them or what happens in my life I will never, ever forget my Green Day moments.<3
ok here goes nothing
deep breath, and go, btw these aren’t in order just as the pop in my head.
Who can forget the meet and greet in NYC, oh lord, that is a good one. From waiting for hours, to meeting 80 for the first time. Sarah not being able to breath….Kara meeting mike and telling her he liked her green day nail polish and my hug from Billie that day was just to incredible. I would be here for hours talking about that day. That was the best day of my life, and I will never forget that day thanks guys<3
I heard about the signing threw the internet and the moment I heard it I was all set on getting to meet my favorite band in the whole world. My sister, my dad, and myself left the house at 5:00 AM in the morning and headed to the city. I got nervous because people already started lining up the night before, so we weren't sure if we were going to get a wrist band. Luckily we made it and we got out wrist bands and headed back home. We listened to 20th Century Breakdown and loved it of course, and I got a email from the idiot club. They told me I won the contest to see Green Day live at Webster Hall, OMG I was freaking out this was turning out the be the best day ever.
So later that night I went back with my mom, my sister, and my friend Sarah to go and meet the band. We waited on line witched seemed like forever let me tell u. We did meet cool people that made the time go much faster. Wile waiting on line I saw Billie's wife Adrienne come by the window, I was the only one on line who knew who she was. I gave her a small wave and returned with a huge smile and a even bigger wave and mouthed the words " hi how are you." I smiled and mouthed " I'm good thanks," and she said she had to go.
When we went to go inside I was so nervous, the first of the three that I saw was Tre, I waved to him and he waved back and I turned beat red. We waited on line a little more and I made my self go last because I was freaking out to much. We saw 80 once again and she was so sweet. She said " well hello again," I smiled and said hello back. " Are you guys excited?" 80 said. I replayed with " Oh yes I am so nervous." "Oh don't be nervous," ( like I couldn't be lol). I said by to her because it was my turn, I took a deep breath and went to meet my favorite band.
Mike was up first, my sister love Mike, so I made sure she got her $$'s worth lol, jking. " Hi Mike, this is my sister Kara she loves you to death," I said. He looked up and said, " Ah thanks, I love her to," he shook my sisters hand and mine and let me tell you that man has some firm hand shake. When he shook my sisters hand he looked at her green nail polish and said to Billie, " oh dude check it out shes rocking the Green Day nail polish, that's awesome "
When it came to Billie I was already in tears from meeting Mike. I got up to Billie, and handed him my CD. I expected him to just say hi, sign it and to move on but no. He signed my CD, put down the marker and looked up at me and said, " Hi, how are you, whats your name." Now I don't know how many of you have met Billie Joe Armstrong, but let me tell you if you look to deeply you could fin your self getting lost in his eyes, and I almost did just that. It took me a second to realize what he had asked and snapped my self back into reality. " I'm good, my name it Erin, and I love you so much, you have no idea." Billie said back, " aw I love you to," he smiled big. I then went for it, might as well might never see him ever again, I got up the nerve to ask him for a hug. Now I thought he would just say yes and just hug me, but what actually happened was just wow. He looked up at me and said, " of course you can sweetie," he shot up like a jack in the box, and hugged me real tight. He smelled so good, and I never wanted it to end, ( well I kind of had to end it his wife was right there lol jking). I said good bye and thanked him and moved to Mr, Tre Cool
Tre looked up and said hello, and I didn't known what to say to him but this is what came out. " Hey Tre I'm a drummer to." He smiled and said, " oh that's awesome totally cool, ummm Mike didn't draw the devil horns on you CD. Mike how could you." I laughed along with him, " You know sense he forgot to draw that I'll draw drum sticks in Christens hand ok?" I said, " Of course that's cool." He handed me my CD and I said my good byes.
That experience was unbelievable I will never forget anything about that night, I will always carry that with me.
