Oh yeah, this deserves a post. About a month ago I was talking with one of my friends here at work and she told me she had heard that New Kids on the Block were reuniting and might be touring again. What?! No, this couldn't be!
For those of you that don't know, my sister and I were huge fans. If not the #1 fans, then defiantly #2. So, today I found out the rumor is true! I know this may sound silly to some of you (for others, your heart is pounding as well!). However, just hearing this news immediately took me back to elementary school. I find the older I get, the less often things trigger my childhood memories. Now, I don't mean to brag (although, I usually tell everyone I know) that in 5th grade, my sister and I met each of the members of NKOTB. We stayed in the same hotel in Destin, FL. Yes, I swam in the same pool with Jordan. Yes, I saw the rat-tail up close. Yes, I braved the ocean waves to float over to Donnie. Yes, I rode the elevator with Jon and still remember his orange jacket. Yes, we made friends with their tour manager in the laundry room. Yes, I took pictures to document this experience with my hot pink side snap camera. And yes, all of this was borderline stalking, but come on...we were crazy for these boys.
I have found 3 other girls I work with (all around my age) who share in the love for them. We are all anxiously awaiting the posting of the tour schedule! Until then, we will just be "Hangin' Tough!"
Thanks for letting me share my memories and not think I'm a complete nut!

I am jealous you met them! I've been following this story for several weeks now and had my eye on their website. They look pretty good for guys going on 40. I am SO going to go see them if they come anywhere remotely near Nashville!
