If you ever get tired of those boys you live with you can come to California and be my love muffin.
I am imagining you explaining this to your husband: "No! It's nothing off-color! She just dances around to 'She Blinded Me With Science'...and occasionally has cheese incidents...wherein we respect her privacy...uh...."
I expect you were poetry in motion.
Damn it, beaten to the exact thought.
I quite approve, too.mmerriam
and I have a tradition of, anytime or anywhere our "first dance" song comes on, dropping whatever we're doing and dancing. So of course we've been caught doing so in many a grocery store aisle and even the occasional parking lot.
...is that where Ivan's friend Vorrutyer got his name?
I sing in the grocery store all the time, especially when it's '80s synth-pop. I wasn't alone in Austin, but I get funny looks here. (This town needs more eccentrics. I'm doing a public service.)
So I can blame you and Miss Sakamoto, ehh?
It's difficult to waltz to anything you might hear in the grocery store, being that you need 3/4 time. Perchance your lineage are talented at adding some kind of extra step, rest, or wiggle on the fourth beat for waltzing to pop tunes and muzak?
No, my folks do wait until it's something in 3/4.
Phew! What a relief. I mean, I try to be open minded and all, but, well, you know.
Tommy James and the Shondells, "Sweet Cherry Wine." (Picture me waltzing down the streets of Pittsburgh.) The Proclaimers, "Sunshine on Leith." The 3/4 pop tunes are rare, but they do exist...
When seized by a desire to waltz, when only 4/4 pop tunes are available, a two-step will often suffice.
Most country music is 3/4, but we don't hear that much in grocery stores in my area.
So glad to hear of healing progress, even if it is still in flux overall! And yay for dancing in grocery stores, I'm fond of it myself.
Wonderful news. So glad to hear it.
I saw "cheese" and "incident" in the same sentence and my first thought was, They play String Cheese Incident on the Muzak? Oh man, I wish I had a Byerly's near me...
No, no. The cheese incident was...well...let us say that I have not counted the kinds of cheese I brought home. But it was more than the hummus, and we have five kinds of hummus now.
Oh, is that all? We have 3 kinds of hummus in our fridge. We're out of baba ghanoush, but I'm about to fix that.
If the deli counter people don't post your picture behind the counter with an "Only 1 sample to this person" notice, you're probably doing okay.
Yay for the number of things I count in that there blurb that indicate a Steady Mrissa!
Yes, I know what you mean about grocery store music. One time badger2305
and I were grocery shopping with Mike Ford and we started dancing in the aisles. I think it was to "Itty Bitty Teeny-weeny Yellow Polka-dot Bikini". He suddenly had to look for something he had forgotten in the previous aisle. Funny how he found it right when the song ended. :) No one should be surprised that people dance when they play music.
What an extremely satisfactory entry.
Not that you wrote it for that purpose, but it's a good side effect, so to speak.
oh this post made me so happy
