Woodstock Me, Grandpa, Billy and Grandma Mary, they’re both in the living room with George and Alexis. George was doing a history project and was stuck. So he asked me if I knew any about American history. I reply yes. George said “like what”. I told him “there was this one concert named Woodstock in 1969”. George said how is that important? I said back to him it was the most famous concert in all history. George quickly said. “Yes”! So I told him my story about Woodstock It was July 22, and I was hanging out with my friends John and Tom. All of us were having a bond fire just outside of our beach house. I was having a good time. Until John asked me a question, John said to me. “Do you want to go to a concert called Woodstock”. I asked “was it jazz”? Tim said no. I said when it was. Tim reply August 1517. I tried to come up with an excuse so I didn’t have to go. I said I couldn’t. They both said why. I said that I had a doctor’s appointment. They didn’t believe me. They both knew that I didn’t like rock n roll and that I didn’t like loud noises. Tim said we won’t do these bond fires with you or take you out for dinner if you didn’t go. I said fine in the worst tone of voice possible. The first day, John, Tim and I all got in the car. As soon as we get there, I said “look at all these hippies”. It was loud, crowded, and all the worst things possible that would haunt me. As soon as we left day 1 of the concert, my friends asked me if I liked it. I said no! The second day, we could go to a restaurant called Jonnies. We ate breakfast before the concert. I wished it went by so fast that I wouldn’t even remember. We left Jonnies. We got there and I saw someone named Mary that would soon be my wife. I said hi to her. She was nice and said hi. And asked how the concert is so far. I said well. She replies yeah. We were talking and talking for the whole time. My friends wondered where I was. It was time to go and when my friends saw me they asked the same question that they did yesterday. My answer changed. I said I loved it. They said finally. Day three: We get there again and I see Mary again. We started talking again for the whole concert and having fun. It was the best day of them all. Halfway through the day, she asked if you wanted to go on a date. I said yes. It was really fun and I’m so glad I went.
