A text exchange with Lauren this past week had me confused for a minute but caused me to giggle:
I thought EXCLAMATION POINTS made me sound angry, but according to my oldest daughter, I was incorrect. She is not only the real police, she is also the grammar police so, I know she was being funny.
I have music playing on our Sonos system ‘throughout the inside and outside’ of our house from the moment I wake up until we sit down to watch the boob tube around 7:30-8pm.
Some days I’m all about John Mayer or Return Of The Mack Radio, but lately it’s been Chris Stapleton and whatever Pandora thinks relates to Chris Stapleton. Soulful country.
One day last week The Coach waltzed into my office while singing along with this oldie-but-goodie when he caught my attention at the second line.
Me: Hey, what if the women aren’t firm feeling any longer?
Coach: No, it’s Guitars that tune good AND firm, (comma) feeling women. The guitars are firm.
Me while giving side eye: And then he feels women? I don’t think so, let me look that up.
*Goes directly to the google machine for verification*
I said excitedly: WRONG!
Isn’t being RIGHT the best feeling in the world? I mean, if drug addicts felt right about things before trying drugs, they might never have traveled that path and instead tried to be RIGHT about things.
*I just made myself laugh*
Thank goodness I was right, but still, the only thing firm about me is my stance on recycling.
I love being married. You can literally annoy ONE special person for the duration of your life. Am I right or am I right?
*I just realized a FUN fact after listening to the entire song again: In the last line Waylon mentions “Jerry Jeff’s (Walker) Train Songs”; well we’re almost
full semi not really circle because now, present day, we are friends with Jerry Jeff’s Son, Django. (yes, his real name)
I know it was a stretch, but still I can’t help but see the significance of all of this. 😳
Anyone else get a bit smug when they’re right? How about angry looking punctuation? Is that new to you too?
