As Metallica enter the stage and the scream of the crowd ignites, I tip toe above men twice my height and extend my neck as though I'm inspector gadget. I want to see them, I can't believe this is happening, all my dreams come true as my knees shake, my palms clam up and my heart races!
My very first show, it's everything I hoped for, I lift up the horns and begin to rock my braided head off, I could die right now are the words I mouth to my best girlfriend, she says you should of worn your sports bra and we giggle as we jump in time to the music!
