IT'S THAT TIME AGAIN
"We now know who the Democratic nominee is going to be."
Leave it to Tim, right?
But it's over. I think. Or it's just beginning. Finally. Hopefully both.
And to celebrate!... well, I've been working these past few weeks. Data entry fills the day, pays the rent, and - it turns out - also keeps me current with the radio.
ME: "Phyllis, help me out... I don't know what the hits are anymore. I keep hearing about Lil Wayne. Is he the guy or what?"
PHYLISS: "Oooooh boy, you don't know Lil Wayne?? You haven't heard Lollipop?"
PHYLISS: "Well you should. If they play him, I'll pass you my headphones."
ME: "Okay, cool - thanks."
PHYLISS: "You said you're in a band, right? Do you mind if I listen to a few songs?"
ME: "Of course. Here's our entire unreleased record - Canopy Glow - let me know what you think!"
----an hour later----
PHYLISS: "I like track four. It's a little like Maroon Five and Nickelback."
ME: "Good Lord."
PHYLISS: "No, that's a good thing!"
PHYLISS: "Here, listen to the R. Kelly 'Customer Remix' - it's amazing."
There are a few lines... that are just not lines I would be singing if I were under trial for what R. Kelly is under trial for. But. That's why he is who he is and I am who I am.
Can anyone enlighten me on Lil Wayne??
