I don't remember what circumstances led up to this, but I was with some
friends in a humoungous arena that was totally packed with people. It was
a PG concert! But there was so many people there, there wasn't enough room
for a stage. PG just waded into the crowd and sang.
I remember that PG was two feet higher than everyone else during this one
song...I said to my friends, "Either PG is taller than what we all
thought, or everyone who's standing around him is shorter." But when he
finished, it turns out he was taller because he was standing on a box or
something because when he finished the song, he stepped down on whatever

When the spotlight was on him again, he was in a different place, still
surrounded by the crowd, but there was a small clearing on the floor in

floor (I never stood up after I slid into the space.)
After the song, PG said to the crowd, "Well, I think I better end the
concert now...I know a lot of you have to go to work or school tomorrow
and I don't want to keep everyone up late." I could tell he was just

"I can stay few more mintues." Someone next to him said.
"I can stay here one or two more hours." Someone else shouted from the
"I can stay here, oh, a couple of *years*," I said.
Pete looked like he was going to say something else to the crowd, but then
my comment sunk in and then he looked at me with that amused look again.
And then I woke up.
