John comes in the door singing PANTERA very loud an obnoxious. Granted the song probably sounded that way, but I was looking for a more peaceful tune like the one from WHAM!.
Our conversation went as follows:
“BABE! STOP SINGING THAT AWFUL SONG!’ (Yes, I had to yell because he was so loud).
“DA DUMMMMMM DA ZAPADULA DUMMMMM DA BOWWWW WOWWWWW”
“BABE! WE NEED TO BE SINGING CHRISTMAS SONGS RIGHT NOW!”
“RUDOLPH THE RED NOSE RAIN DEER…HAD A VERY SHINEY NOSE!”
“NO!! Not that song! The song from WHAM!”
“AND IF YOU EVER SAW IT…YOU WOULD EVEN SAY IT GLOWS.”
“Well I don’t know that song, why don’t you sing it to me?”
“No.” (By this point I was already too ticked off)
“Well at least give me the title.”
“LAST CHRISTMAS I GAVE YOU MY HEART...”
He totally knew it! I told him that was one of my faves and that he needed to download it for me. Then he tells me that he thought he already did last year. Whatever…I couldn’t remember.
So then he goes into our office to order me some gifts, (as I told him he needed to order them by the 30th. He is such a planner!) Two minutes later I hear the sweet sounds of WHAM! drifting out of the office along with John singing and dancing! I know deep in my heart that if John had been born 15 years earlier, was British, and had the chance to be a member of WHAM!, that they would still be touring as a threesome and John would be known as Johnny ‘Hot Pants’ Charles.
