Do you remember that song? By Monica?
I always thought that song was about periods and had wondered why write a song about being on your period?? But now (literally right now) as I am listening to it with fresh, 31 year old ears, I'm realizing that it's just a song about having a bad day. It obviously has nothing to do with your period.
I titled this post "Just one of dem dayz" because tonight was a complete train wreck- not because of Monica, or periods, or my fav songs from junior high. I haven't had a train wreck night in a while. Johnny was super naughty and emotional, girls fighting, doors slamming, baby crying, crying, crying/not falling asleep, Clemmy crying, crying, choke-crying/not falling asleep, me crying/wishing I was asleep. All at the same time, husband not home, etc, blah blah.
(You know, one of those.)
Anyway, everyone was finally quite by 9:30 and so I sat down to write a bit. And I plopped down that title sort of thoughtlessly which led me to- "Hmmm, I should listen to that song (about periods) right now!!" And so I did and what do you know? All of my very important, very inspired blogness has been totally sidelined by late nineties r&b.
I think it's better that way.
Maybe you had a rough night. If you did (or didn't... you can still heed this advice even if you had a glorious evening of luxury and happiness)- maybe do the following: 1. listen to this jam 2. forget about the dishes and the sweeping up 3. tuck yourself (yo self) into that comfy bed 4. sleep.
That's me in about 15 secs, bb. Don't take it personal.
