When me mate Michael met Bono......



..okay this story is very brief, but what the heck, I dont tink I ever told yas!



Back in 97 in that 'net cafe, Michael was the one who helped me set up my email and showed me how to use the net to get U2 pics and info and he told me he one time a few years earlier (Zoo TV era) he bumped into Bono with two bigger guys walking down a wee place called 'Pottinger's Entry' in the middle of Belfast Town here and he ran over and said he was a big fan and asked for his autograph and got it, but the cutest ting was that Bono was holding a bag of sweeties and offered one to Mikey!!!

But, as Mikey put his hand in, Bono told him to close his eyes to make it more fun....to surprise himself..........Mikey got his sweet and Bono said he had to go...........Mikey said he was a gentleman............how cool it that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey, you're not supposed to take candy from strangers, but Bono's not really a stranger, right?

That is a dilemma! What did she end up doing with it? It seems like the U2 boys like to hand out treats. Do they do trick-or-treating in Ireland, or is that just an American thing? Maybe they want to spread the treats in Ireland!

Cuuute story. Sort of reminds me of when fellow forum member 'whiteflag' met Adam outside of Hanover Quai and he offered her a stick of chewing gum. She took it and starting chewing it because she thought it would be rude not to....but afterwards her big dilemma was...to keep it or not to keep it! lmoa.

I WANT CANDY FROM BONO.

Candy....in an all girls' school, candy is like cigarettes in prison.

I agreed to tutor this Freshman in Algebra because this teacher promised he'd give me candy if I did. I'm a slave to the candy.

Now I'm starvin.'
