This afternoon “To Be With You” came on the radio and I was thinking that the whole song is ruined by one word: next. “Just to be the next to be with you”? Couldn’t it have just been “just to be the one to be with you”? How much nicer would it have been that way? Next means that a) there is a line of dudes at the ready and b) they will ALL get their turn. Maybe she should pass out numbers or something.

Huh. Seven days into NaBloPoMo and I am already bored with the concept.

    Oh freakin’ hell, now I have that song stuck in my head. Thanks a lot.

    And yes, “next” is a bad choice of words. Kind of a gross visual.

    That is so funny. In high school I made this my best friend’s “theme song.” She always had a boyfriend and was NEVER single. Literally every time she and one boyfriend would break up some guy in her math class or something would say “I’ve always liked you and wanted to ask you out but you were with so and so.” Then they would start dating and the pattern continued over and over. I said it was like she had an imaginary line of guys just waiting to be her boyfriend just as soon as the current one left the picture.
