Okay...you just have to hear this.  My husband (who is NOT an Oils fan) 
just gave me a really hard time the other night about my 'unhealthy' 
fanatical devotion to the Oils and the fact that I'm spending a lot of 
money (and dragging him with me) to see every show within 600 miles of 
me and he asked me if the Oils came back next year would I do the same 
thing.  And (because i was deep over my head in the argument as my only 
defense was how much I love the Oils and how I've never seen them and 
they hardly ever come to the states, etc.) I wouldn't even dignify the 
hypothetical 2002 tour question with an answer (though we all know, of 
course I would) because the Oils would NEVER come back next year..that's 
ridiculous!..this is a once in a decade chance!!!....or so I insisted.  
And now, if they really come here again next spring, I am going to have 
to just eat my words and it is going to be really ugly because you all 
know i will absolutely be wherever they are.  Oh man....LOL!!
