'fill my eyes with that double vision...'
The other morning, my husband and I were watching a national morning news programs when the band Chicago appeared on the screen, telling us to stay tuned for their performance after the commercial break.
"Hey, Chicago, without Sting, what's really the point?" Tool Man asked the TV screen, and then flipped his thumb toward the TV and turned to me with a grin that was all, "And you say I don't know anything about music. Pffft!"
"Oh my GOD! Are you kidding me?" I cried.
"What? Do people even care about Chicago if Sting's not up front?" he responded.
Stunned, I said, "Fans of The Police probably don't care about Chicago, baby. To the members of Chicago, this no doubt breaks their hearts."
He gave me an embarrassed look, but refused to admit his knowledge of music is squat. "Good thing you charmed me with your adoration and cuteness, because it's the only way I could look past the fact you proudly own Taco's cassette and end up married to you."
I'm tempted to ask my friend Chag at Cynical Dad if he'd be willing to school Tool Man in the musical arts. I'm hoping my guest post at his site today might warm him up to the idea. When he asked me to swing by his place while his family enjoyed a vacation this week, I thought, "Well, that's just like giving a stalker keys to the place and asking them to dig around in your fridge and paw in your underwear drawer! So yeah, when you leavin'?" Then I acted calm and naturally agreed! Please go over there, read my love letter, and drop a comment. Don't forsake me, people! If you and I ever meant anything to each other ever, you'd do this for me. You know I'd do it for you!
Before you go, though, take a look below here. See that other post? It's by Aphron at Foolish Mutterings. He's here as part of the Great Blog Swap of 2008, which was initiated by FTN as a means of allowing interested bloggers to infiltrate another, purely agreeable blogger's home for a guest post today. Through a no doubt scientific selection process, Aphron is visiting here today, so if you're inclined, please leave comments for him on his post, then visit FTN and see where others are hanging out.
What's that? You're wondering if, since there's a guest blogger here, does that mean I have ANOTHER guest post out there on the internets today? You all are so sweet! Have I told you that lately? You are. Sweet as brownies. The answer is yes, I do, in fact, have another post up at Therese's blog, Therese In Heaven. That post mentions sex, so hey, go visit and comment there, too!
That's it for me. Seriously. I'm beat from all the writing I've done this week. And TWO posts for ONE day?! Sheesh! Exhausting! I don't know how you people who post every day do it. My only guess is you're all a bunch of prolific wizards, and I just can't seem to pull off the pointy hat.
