Third Time's the Charm

"I have been a song man for a long, long time.
Coming up with some melodies...trying to find some words to rhyme."
~H. Chapin

I was serenaded three times last week. I am such a lucky, lucky girl.

Serenade #1: Monday

On the phone with Bill, an attorney that I referred a case to recently.

Me: Hi Bill. Christian called with a question, so could you give him a call?
Bill: Mmmhmmm, sure! Sister Christian, oh the time has cooooome. And you know that you're the only one to sayyyyyy, O.K.
Me: Hmmm, what?
Bill: I was serenading you!
Me: Oh. Um. Thanks. I haven't been serenaded in awhile.
Bill: It will help you with your Manic Mondayyy!
Me: (Nervous laughter)....uh yes? I do have a bit of the case of the Mondays.
Bill: Normally I just walk around with my boombox over my head like John Cusack.
Me: (more nervous laughter)
Bill: Hey! I was in the office last week did you see me?
Me: Uhhh. No....
Bill: You didn't see the hot guy walking around your office last Thursday?
Me: Sorry, I didn't.
Bill: Too bad...how is life treating you?
Me: Um, fine. So you're going to take care of Christian, right?
Bill: 10-4!

Serenade #2: Tuesday

Again, on the phone with Bill.

Me: Hi Bill.
Bill: More, more, morrrrre! How do you like it? How do you like it?
Me: I'm sorry?
Bill: I'm listening to a random CD I bought. It's awesome. Just like Alice Cooper said on SNL...(have no idea what he said here as my head was in my hands)
Me: Hey, do you listen to Pandora?
Bill: What?
Me: Do you have speakers attached to your computer? Go to pandora.com. It's self-explanatory. (Am hoping that this will get his singing out of his system...)
Bill: You kids and your fancy internet.

Serenade #3: Saturday

I went to see a friend perform comedy at a local theater. One of the performers asked me to come up on stage so that he could sing to me, as I looked like the girl he wrote the song about.

The subject of the song? Premature ejaculation.

Someone Get This Girl A Drink

"That's all they really want....some fun.
When the working day is done - girls, they want to have fun."
~C. Lauper

Walking around with Mercedes today, debating where we should eat lunch:

Me: "So, do you have a taste for anything?"
Mercedes: "Not really. Oooh, there's this one Italian restaurant...do you know which one I'm talking about?"
Me: "No, where is it?"
Mercedes: "Well, it's hard to find. It's, like, in a building."

Thank God it's almost the weekend.
