It was early June, 1980. My cousin Gary, his fiancee Maria, some friends and cousins of hers, and I went to Great Adventure to see the Ramones in concert.

To pass the time before the main attraction, we went on some rides.

I was within earshot of Joe Jag, Victor and Vinnie when they started singing Blotto’s “I Wanna Be A Lifeguard”.

A few days after the concert I went to the nearest Sam Goody and got a copy of Blotto’s “Hello My Name Is Blotto. What’s Yours?”

The Ramones were good but that song is still just too much.

Thanks to Ted Strutz for this week’s Photo Prompt and to Rochelle Wisoff~Fields, our fearless leader, for Friday Fictioneers.
