A: I think my iPod is trying to tell me something.
D: Um. . . you are aware that it is an inanimate object, correct?
A: Says the character in my head.
D: My point still stands.
A: All right, so I know just hitting “shuffle” on all songs is problematic, as it is likely that I will hear the same song twice – but twice in once week?
D: You know the trick, right?
A: Yes, follow Jack Flacco’s suggestion and make a smart playlist that only plays songs I haven’t listened to in over X-amount of days.
D: Oh, I was going to say . . . well, never mind. Jack is right.
A: No, what were you going to say?
D: No, really, it’s okay, A.
A: Tell me.
D: Wow, did you know your eyes get all funny and –
D: Fine, I was going to mention something about pipers and a fiddler and (voice gets quieter) maybe some pan pipes
A: . . . Yeah, Jack’s suggestion works better. Be that as it may, I Found a Reason to verily and voraciously vaunt the veracity of vindictiveness.
D: Wow, I was going to taunt you for not making your alliteration make sense . . . but you did it, A.
A: Yeah. I did.
D: I bow down to your greatness.
A: Oh my god, are you dying?
D: No. I don’t even think Bjork is dying during that track A.
A: Maybe not, but it’s pretty.
D: You know what else is pretty?
D: No, A—
A: How about Pearls?
A: (Grins) Yes, D?
D: You are hopeless. And obviously have had too much sugar.
A: Or not enough.
D: Did your iPod ever forgive you for giving it the Blues last week?
A: Sort of. It keeps taunting me though.
D: How so?
A: With this:
D: (Snicker) Oh, that’s not very nice. Anything else?
A: Well, this one made me smile a lot – even if it was wishful thinking.
D: Right, because you’re closer to the Heart of the Ocean than you are to summer.
A: But if I were in the ocean, I would have to ask a very pertinent question.
D: What’s that?
A: Where Are We Now?
D: Oh boy, this is getting a little ridiculous, A.
A: You know what that’s called, D?
D: I’m afraid to know.
A: Friday. That’s what it’s called.
D: (Eye roll) Do you have any other music you’d like to incorporate into our dialogue?
A: Only that I intend to go ‘Rock’n Me’ butt off tonight?
A: Does it count if it’s at the YMCA?
D: Are you quite finished?
A: I mean no – there are two honorable – or not-so-honorable as the case might be for the second one – mentions for this week.
D: You know, you were supposed to limit these lists to 5 songs, right?
A: Yeah, well, when have I ever followed the rules, even my own?
D: Right. Never. So, these mentions?
A: The Woodland Realm. One, because it is beautiful and two–
D: I know, I know, it came from the Hobbit Soundtrack. You really do need to implement Jack’s suggestion. You listen to that all week long.
A: I know, but when it comes up in “all songs” I have to list it. It’s required.
D: Uh huh. And the other one?
A: Super Freak.
D: There’s no need for that kind of language, A.
A: No, it’s the song.
It came on just as I was pulling into work – that was the biggest grin I’ve had at 7am in a long time!
D: . . . .
A: Don’t give me that look. Helena had Pornographers on her site (and some incredible music that I cannot wait to go home and listen to!)
D: Uh huh.
A: Smile, Druid – you know you want to. Happy Friday everyone. Hope you enjoyed my musical adventure this week – thank you for stopping by, reading and listening!
