Day 24: A Song that You Have Danced to With Your Best Friend


Now?
You know my girl now?
No?

You know my girl just called me up
And she woke me from my sleep
You should have heard the things she said
You know she hurt my feelings deep

I’m gonna buy me a dog
A dog? A dog
Why? Why?
‘Cause I need a friend now
Babe, you need all the friends
You can get, I’m tellin’ you
I’m gonna buy me a dog
My girl, my girl, don’t love me no how

Don’t ruin my song man
It’s the only song I have
It was ruined when it was wrote
Uh, where’s the verse?

By The Monkees

 

My sister Cheri and I have had many MANY songs that we have happily put a song and dance act to over the years. Most times we were drunk while putting on such performances but other times we were completely sober and having a field day being as stoooopid as possible. Gonna Buy Me a Dog is one of those songs that warrants all kinds of childish behavior without explanation or justification of soberness. Anyway… this song reminds me of all the crazy spontaneous adventures my sister and I would have when we were younger. After soooooo many years no I’m not exactly sure of the number of years I’ve known her I’m so very thankful to still have her in my life. She is the absolute bestest!

Thanks for reading…

Nerdtastic, Write?

I am an aspiring writer trying to find my place in the world. Writing makes me happy, save lives much like coffee, and keeps me grounded. To honestly know me is to understand my way of thinking, my quirky, sarcastic side comments, and left uppercut verbal jabs and side-eye death stares. I’m simplistic but can often be very complex in nature. I love life to the absolute fullest, but I am human; therefore, I have more than my fair share of ups and downs. I am a giant kid, so being goofy comes naturally to me. I secretly strive to be the next Ernest Hemingway, J.K. Rowling, Zora Neale Hurston, or Shonda Rhimes. I openly and stupidly wear every bit of my heart on my sleeve and refuse to apologize for or minimize my true, unedited feelings.
