Ahh that brings to mind two fun facts about me. I thought Madonna's A Material Girl was actually 'I'm a Cheerio girl'. I used to sing it full force because I was too a Cheerio girl, at least in my mind I was.
Second fun fact is I had only one patch on my jeans jacket in junior high, the Aerosmith winged logo. Ahh those were the days. I always knew I was not cool but I think I cared even less then. I had dreams that I would have a teenage movie moment. You know the moment she takes off her glasses and puts on just a touch of makeup and bam she's the prom queen dating the quarterback. I did not even wear glasses then and now I think I look better with them.
I didn't even want to date the quarterback I just wanted to have one of those 'I'm beautiful' moments. Good thing D loves me for me.
Today I woke up in a funk. Time for a bad mood to control my day. I drove to work with the moon roof open, the windows down, and the radio blaring. It did not knock the funk out of me. Of course I did not have true ticked off tonic music on. That would have required ACDC, Def Leopard or Tom Petty. When we bought a new vehicle a while ago it came with satellite radio and they had a dedicated ACDC station. Guaranteed to get me in a better mood. Isn't it funny how some music can do that for us?
They say smells can bring back memories, but for me a song on the radio can slam me back to high school quicker than anything. Ice Ice Baby does it every time, whether I want it to or not. It does not help that I am married to a man that loves to prove that he still remembers all the words. Good thing I love him for him.
