We became "Scalpers"...
Informal . a small profit made in quick buying and selling.
verb (used with object)
a. to resell (tickets, merchandise, etc.) at higher than the official rates.
b. to buy and sell (stocks) so as to make small quick profits.
Because we decided to behave and not take a ticket from a poor little bride at the last sale, we concluded that this time we wanted to have a little more fun. We scalped for a cause. We waited on the outskirts just like we learned from the scalpers at Knick games, until we spotted our target. Now we needed to use our bait to lure this bride in.
"Need a ticket?' we whispered down the line. "We'll hook you up." So we spotted Olana, and boy did we make her day!
See the thing about this ticket, this golden ticket, is that if you came early enough (like we did--9 am), you get one of the first slots inside. If you didn't, you were going to be waiting until all the brides with those tickets cleared out. So we proposed our offer to ticket-less Olana under one simple condition: She was to be our bride, and were going to kill for her dream dress. TEAM OLANA!

We made friends...and crowned the ones we loved...
