Jason Mraz, I’m Sorry.

During my undergrad years, I was in The Pride of Oklahoma, University of Oklahoma marching band.  One day when I showed up to the practice field for rehearsal, there was a crew of roadies setting up a stage at one end of the field.  I thought that was pretty weird and I noticed a few random people standing at the sideline.  I didn’t recognize them from the band and my curiosity got the best of me. 

I approached the people and asked, “Do you guys know what the stage is for?”

A guy in the group responded, “Yeah, it’s for the Jason Mraz concert later.”

“Pffff,” I snorted.  “Who the hell is Jason Mraz?”

“Uh… I’m Jason Mraz.”

 “Oh.”

 I was more than a little embarrassed, but in my defense, I’ve never been very good at keeping up with pop music. 

…Anyway, my whole point is that I heard one of Jason Mraz’s songs on the radio today and not only did I recognize that it was him, I thought the song was pretty good. 

Jason Mraz, wherever you are—you probably don’t even remember the incident, but I’d like to say that I actually know who you are now and your music’s actually pretty groovy.  I bet if I’d gone to your concert on the marching field back then, I would have enjoyed it.
