Repeat after me: “the world is a feeling, and I’m responsible for how I feel“. At this very moment, it’s 4:49 p.m. Saturday afternoon. Have no idea what time it will be when I actually post this but does it matter? Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge. I was taken to the Edge rather unexpectedly this afternoon by none other than Mr. Barry White. Allow me to explain. See, in my perpetual effort to mix things up, mess with the routine gods, I’ve taken to doing my grocery shopping for the week on Saturday. Preferably, early in the day. This entails a trip to the grocery store and a second, separate trip to the Korean market. Groceries unloaded, put away? Check! Sidetracked by phone call, I finally head out to the market. Damn, way later than I thought but hell, it’s a beautiful sunny day. I get in the car, crank the AC (not really, but “crank” sounds more dramatic). I knew right away Otis needed to be ejected and a more appropriate CD loaded for this venture. But who would that be? I rummaged around and spotted the Barry White Greatest Hits. Alright.
As the first strains of “Love’s Theme” began to play, my mouth widened like the Grand Canyon and time simply suspended itself. Nothing in particular, and everything, elevated me to a place that, at one point, caused me to laugh out loud. I felt good. Funny. When that song came out it was played constantly on top 40 radio. I would hear it every morning on the school bus and I always thought the same thing: god, this song sucks. Now? Hell, who, when in the proper mood, doesn’t love Barry White songs? OK. Maybe, just maybe Barry is considered chick music but who isn’t dancing out of their seat with this one 😀 But I digress. Today’s post is a sharing of Ten Things of Thankful. Kristi, of late insomniac, is our host exemplar and provides the link to a potential for the extraordinary.
TTOT Autoplay option on the YouTube. But do tell. How does one go from Barry to Johnny Cash/Joe Strummer duet to Disturbed? lol P.S. How the f%&*# does Lynard Skynard follow Disturbed?? OK. No more peeking to see what the autocrats of the autoplay are cueing…
