You know how there are those songs that come on and you forget where you are and start to shimmy? You know how Monday mornings suck? Well, let’s combine the two. Every Monday I’ll post another video that always gets me shaking my groove thing. You can either try not to dance (as a challenge to my DJing skills) or dance like everyone is watching and you just don’t give a shit anyway.
This Monday comes with a true story. I was awoken at seven this morning because my sister’s alarms would.not.stop. No one else in the family is awake (still) and I was angry and bitter about this. FFS my daughter is actually sleeping in and I can’t because Melissa’s alarm is a goddamned nightmare.
I’ve been having fantasies about smashing it…
But I’m an adult, so I didn’t smash the phone. Or her. Or her with the phone. Instead, I got up and got to work. And when I could still hear her alarm, I just started my 2018: The Beginning-ing playlist.
And it worked, for a bit. Music soothed my inner beast. Right up until Sorry Not Sorry came on.
And I realize now it makes it seem like I thrashed my sister but good based on that song, but really I just started singing and dancing around like an idiot.
So there you have it. This song has a proven track record of not making you give a fuck that it’s Monday. Even sleep deprived and pissed off.
Also, a rambling nonsensical post to kick off 2018.
(I don’t love this video, but whatevs. Kids, you know? Just… don’t abuse stuffed animals.)
Give it a listen. Dance, or don’t. Leave me a comment to let me know if you danced (or didn’t). If you love the song or if you hate it. If you have a recommendation to get my blood moving this Monday morning. Even if you just want to say hello.
(Especially if you just want to say hello…)
