I was sad this weenend. I was supposed to be at the Burning Man festival, but had to cancel do to the fact I had to be to work at the end of the week. [students arrived this weekend, my office had to be open]
So my wife got us tickets to John Mayer at the tweeter center in MASS. The concert was amazing. Counting Crows opened for them and he went on around 9:30… After his second or third set, I heard something out of his mouth that made me go, “HUH?? DID HE JUST SAY WHAT I THINK HE SAID?”
My wife knows about the saying, “Hi Opal” from me telling her about these boards.
So when John Mayer finished his second or third set and waved to the crowd and said, “Hi Opal” I nearly fell down off the seat!
So has anyone seen John Mayer and heard this? Is this something he says all the time? Was I hallucinating? Or could it be John Mayer is a doper and he was having a littl fun…
If the latter, “Hey John! Your concert Rocked!!!”
Has it? A Google search for the phrase turns up 151 results. Many are SDMB-related pages (e.g. Dopers’ live journals, Fathom forums, etc.) Many of the rest are stories or accounts of conversations in which someone says “Hi Opal.” No non-SDMB pages have “Hi Opal” in a list.
FWIW, here is a cockatoo that can say “Hi Opal.” (Opal is the name of the owner’s other bird.)
sigh I’m the most pathetic person on the planet. I’m reading a John Mayer thread that obviously I was interested in enough to open, and I read that post and thought “What does James Marsters have to do with anything? And is there a thread about him?”
