if i were a gay man, he'd be my soulmate...
i'm shopping with justy and we're waiting on the corner for a light to change on our way to pier 1. i see a woman holding a something wrapped in brown paper with butcher's string tied around it. and because i'm a loser, i start to sing in my head "brown paper packages tied up with string, these are a few of my favorite things..." as we finish our walk, the rest of my internal monologue goes something like this: "i haven't seen that movie in ages. i wonder if they have one of those sound of music sing-alongs out here. i wouldn't dare bring work boyfriend with me. but i bet justy would come..."
moments later we step into pier 1. looking around i ask him "so where do we start?" "well," he says, and putting his index finger to his lips in mock "deep-thought" he starts to sing, "let's start at the very beginning..."
i'm shocked. can he really read my mind? how did he know i was already silently doing a one woman show of "the sound of music" in my head?!
"did you see last week's will and grace?"
"no, was it good?"
"well, taye diggs was on."
"and they were going to a sound of music sing-along."
"no!!!! i was just thinking about sound of music sing-alongs!"*
justin hilariously recounted what sounded like it might have been the funniest will and grace episode EVER. and i missed it. anyone have it on tape? but more importantly, it's so good to have a friend to share my dorky qualities with.
"Perhaps I had a wicked childhood
Perhaps I had a miserable youth
But somwhere in my wicked, miserable past
There must have been a moment of truth
For here you are, standing there, loving me
Whether or not you should
So somewhere in my youthful childhood,
I must have done something good"
*i'm thinking this may be the first time ever this sentence has been uttered in the history of the world.
