…well, not really. But I did laugh until I almost peed myself in the wee hours of the morning the other day.
You see, when we picked up my daughter’s bestie for band carpool, she presented me with the record below, and said, “My dad thought you might like to borrow this.”
When I saw what “this” was, I burst out laughing and so did my daughter. You see, not everyone knows I hate Bob Seger. In fact, a lot of people assume the opposite because I’m from Detroit. Apparently, you are supposed to like all music born in your hometown. Well, personally, I’ll take the White Stripes, MC5, Iggy Pop and pretty much any Motown artist out there over Bob Seger any day. And Record Girl’s dad, an infamous prankster, knows this full well.
So, with apologies to Mr. Seger, today I raise my coffee cup to the friends who always know how to make us laugh — even at 6 o’clock in the morning.
Disclaimer: I spent the entire morning trying to work out an issue with the RSS feed on this blog, and it’s still not resolved. I’m annoyed but even more frustrated that I squandered the two hours I had allotted for writing today on such nonsense. And there you have my justification for yet another short post. Sigh. I feel like such a NaBloPoMo failure.
You know this is blasphemy in our house, right? Uncle Bob pays our bills. 🙂
Haha! Sorry, Amy. I hope you can forgive me. There’s no accounting for taste, right?
What you don’t like Bob Seger? Lucky for you, I lke you already so I won’t hold it against you. I have fond memories of a church ski trip where Blaine let me borrow his walkman and I listened to Turn the Page and Old Time Rock N Roll ver and over and over and over.
Thanks for forgiving me, friend. I don’t know what it is about him, but his voice is like nails on a chalkboard for me. Always has been. And that feathered hair? Don’t get me started. “Old Time Rock N Roll” I can at least stomach because it makes me think of Tom Cruise dancing in his whitey tighties.
I feel like a NaBloPoMo failure! At least you WRITE – I’ve missed THREE days so far :/ hrmph
Never fear, rowmie. Life happens. Nice to see you on the challenge grid this week. Was this your first time?
