Strutting Your Stuff
I'm the coolest. Really... I feel really cool. I'm walking down the street in the hip area of the city and I've got my shades on, high heels and rockin' music pumping in my ears. That's right - I'm in my own music video. Actually, not my music video but a music video where this girl is walking down the street and everyone looks at her and thinks, "She is SO cool..."
Alright, enough of my little fantasy. I guess sometimes I just get rapped up in the feeling that headphones give me.
You (meaning me) are sitting in a office all day and on your lunch break you put your little ear piece thing in your ears (or big bulky headphones because the little white ipod one's don't fit in your small ears - damn Ipod... But I love my genes - my ears won't be the size of my face when I'm 80). But you still feel cool because your favorite song comes on and you've never seen the video for it on MTV so you open the door to the world and the video begins. The walk starts and the John Travolta walk from Saturday Night Fever takes over and you are strutting yourself like the new winner from Top Model. No one can hold you down. "no body gonna breaka my stride - no body gonna slow me down - oh no... I've got to keep on movin'!" Anyone??? My Mom used to love that freakin' song.... Back to reality (my music video)....
You find yourself at a gazebo and you sit down in the sun. The music turns to a sentimental song and your emotions flow like chocolate over a fondue fountain. The breeze blows right when the song hit the emotional peek and you think you've found heaven... Serenity, music and nature...
No? This doesn't happen to everyone? There's no heaven with a music video with America's Next Top Model eating from a flowing chocolate fondue?? What the fuck? Who exactly is ruining this dream for me? The model who won't eat or John Travolta because he's pissed at me for stealing his thunder because he's just too old and fat now?
Well, I guess it doesn't really matter if it's real or not. In my head it feels awesome that I'm in a rocking 80's video. I just want to thank the person who invented headphones. They are a fucking genius and deserve a gold medal... Or a Nobel Prize or something.... How about one of those old Smurf dolls??? They have got to be worth something, right?
My future's so bright, I gotta wear shades.
