I'm Pretty Sure He Likes Delilah


Dear Blogity Blog,

I lost my iPOD last week.  I left it on the plane.  NO ONE turned it in to lost and found and I know because I've called more than once.  I think that cleaning person decided to turn it in to his/her pocket instead.  I've been bummed about it all week until today.  Today Ray gave me his iPOD (his is nicer and newer).  He said he gave it to me because he "rarely" uses it.  He also said I could wipe it clean and put all my stuff on it.

Tonight's been great, and not because he gave his iPOD to me.  I'm going through all the music on it and trying not to laugh... don't want to make him feel embarrassed.  I knew this was going to be great before I'd even left the A's.  He has Air Supply on here.  As I kept scrolling, it only got better.  The B's have Boys II Men, and the C's have Celine Dion.  The real belly buster happened when I got to the W's.  My husband has Wilson Phillips on his iPOD.  Who is this person?

Ray's getting the last laugh now, though.  I'm the one singing along (LOUDLY) to Wilson Phillips.  I feel like I'm 10 and hanging out with my best friend Gwen.  We've got the music on low.  We're laying in her water bed and talking about what we want our houses to look like when we get older.  I can't even begin to make you understand what this feels like.  You'll just have to go turn on Wilson Phillips and feel it for yourself.  This has been the best blast-from-the-past ever.

Gwen, if you lived anywhere near me, I'd come over and share Ray's iPOD with you.  I'd also bring some graph paper so we could draw the blueprints to our houses and then we could end the night by playing MASH.  I think we'd have an awesome night.

I don't think I'll be wiping his iPOD clean... not with all these gems on it.

Sincerely,
     Cali

On another funny side note; after the first 5 Wilson Phillips songs played I subconsciously thought, "almost time to turn the tape over."  A side and B side, burned into the brain F-O-R-E-V-E-R.

Cali you make me laugh. I'm not even sure who Wilson Phillips is, but if he makes you remember those things, I bet it would make me remember sitting outside you and Gwen's door drawing my own house trying to be like you guys.

I bet you have more techno and Lady Gaga you know what to do with now.

I'm going downstairs right now to search out my Wilson Phillips! I know it's down there somewhere. VERY good memories! I miss you!!!

Air Supply? He has Air Supply? I LOVE Air Supply? I'm all out of love and so lost without it!

I'm so glad Ray gave you his iPod, because it MOVED you to write.

I clearly remember yours and Gwen's Wilson Phillips days. It was the first artist you branched into on your own that I knew nothing about. And those houses. My how you two could draw homes. I loved both of your dreams. Sweet memories indeed.

Who's Delilah? Sounds risque. Is she?

OK, these comments are even funnier than the post, which was funny. I've always thought I was behind the times with my pop culture knowledge, but I have just found out that there are some who know less than I do. I thought it would make me feel better, but it doesn't.

Cali, men secretly LOVE love ballads. All men. Even the ones who vehemently deny it (read Calvin here).

Thanks for the chuckle,
BRENDA

I'm back. I've got Air Supply stuck in my head now. I'm wearing purple overalls with a pink flowered shirt underneath and dancing with Bobby. My hair is feathered. I'm wearing CHARLIE perfume. I'm chewing Orbit gum.

Hahaha.. I have all that same music on my ipod. I'm a nerd I know! I think it's obvious why Abe hates listening to my ipod! I love Wilson Phillips though and always will! My sister and I would lay on our bunk beds when we were little and sing all the songs- A side and B side!

You'll never believe this! I just got back from a doctors appointment and shopping and guess what song was playing in the dollar store...

"HOLD ON FOR ONE MORE DAY"

It was all I could do to not start singing outloud in the store ;)

Wilson Phillips is a MUST in the household of early teen Haley McManus. An absolute must.

This post cracked me up. Love it Cali.
