ITS A TWO-FER TUESDAY!!!
I remember the Night I was passed out at a party, and starting to spin from all the beer I had been drinking when the song "The Fool on the Hill" came on. I was thinkin I might make it OK until the part that features a recorder flute thing and Paul or John singing :
"Whoa-Whoa- woa- wo-wo-wo.... Round and Round and Round and..."...
I lost it...
I also remember the song “The Way of the World” on the same album as “Shining Star”. Earth Wind and Fire, right?
There were 2 sisters in High School (just sisters, not soul sisters) that had a little dance they and their friends would do to those two songs, kind of a cross between the Bump, the Hustle, and the Electric Slide. It wasn't the same party without Robin and Tammy and their gang there.
I passed by their mothers house last week, and there was a bunch of stuff in the front yard. I had not seen them in 15 years and doubted that she might still live there, when one of the sisters, Tammy came out of the garage.
She intercepts me halfway up the drive.
She says “Sir, we aren’t having a garage sale, we are just clearing out the Garage”.
She doesn’t recognize me yet, so I turn away, pick something up and ask how much they want for it. She repeats that its not a Garage sale. I pick something else up and look at it and say “Ya’ll really don’t have much good stuff here”.
About that time her mother comes out of the Garage and says
"Listen , Sir, this is not a Garage sale”. She is a little irritated.
So I set the item down and look a little more and picked up a really gorgeous vase and said
“I'll give you a dollar for this”.
They looked at me and at each other and another sister,Robin, steps out of the Garage…
"Can you believe this guy" she says to her mother, and the three of them are now standing in a row, hands on hips, wondering who is the idiot with bad hearing.
I have managed to keep my face fairly well turned away from them and I have a ball cap on but now I face them head-on, looking them each in the eye and announce
"This is some real crap you guys are trying to sell".
I can see the wheels spinning on the mothers face and she’s looking real hard at me. Robin and Tammy have not a clue and are looking at each other. I am trying to keep a straight face. Finally moms face lights up and she Yells
“That’s that gol-darn ol' Bulletholes”
and we all just fell out laughing! It was great!
