R is for….Really?!?
Two things happened to me that sparked the “R” word today – in my homage to America…the land of the free, and the home of, Steve Winwood and real toilet paper.
First, I had an appt this morning at school, so I headed there. I live on the main drag of my subdivison. But, it has a bend in the road and a stop in the center of the street. So as I turned the corner to head toward the stop sign this morning, lo and behold, I faced a house…that was TP’d. REALLY?!? It was so…old school. Do people really still TP people? I think those who do should definitely take a trip to China, where they’d swiftly learn the value of really high quality toilet paper. I guarantee if they hit a few public toilets while there, they’d NEVER TP again.
And speaking of old school, just got back from my power walk for the evening. Had to put on the dance channel from Pandora on the iPhone while working out. Stunner #2: someone actually took the time to remix Steve Winwood into club music. REALLY?!? I barely liked his music in high school which, er, was more years ago then I care to mention in this forum. Suffice it to say, someone who actually took the time remix his tracks into dance music could only have happened here in America. Not sure anyone else would officially bother to wipe the dust off of the track, let alone remix it. (Not that I minded, but I did a little…Winwood totally reminds me of a really awful high school job I had at the Toasty Shop in South Bend. Cheesy uniform and all.) No, thanks, don’t need a higher love…
In conclusion – I’m always amazed in this country by what some people actually value and spend their time doing.
