My Night at the KISS Concert

M. Stanley Bubien

Friend 1: (Yells.) "Are they passing the bucket tonight?"

Friend 2: (Yells back.) "They don't do that anymore!"

Friend 1: "But I wanna see 'em drink!"

Friend 2: (Glances at stage. Grins suddenly.) "I hear they're doing something else instead!"

Friend 1: (Nods vigorously.)

Friend 2: (Grins bigger.) "They bring these baby chicks on-stage and stomp on them with their boots!" (Laughs.)

Friend 1: "No way! Cool!"

Friend 2: (Falls silent. Looks at friend. Shakes head and turns toward stage.)
