Itchy Back and Sexy Back...Top 50 Cntd

I went to the Dollar Store today to find a kite for my date with Claire tonight.

While I was there, I overheard the following conversation between two employees (in full view/earshot of the customers):

Lady 1 (aka BoxCutter): Did you just fart?
Lady 2 (aka Proper Lady): Hell yes. When ya gots to, ya gots to.
BoxCutter: Good thing. I thought you poohed your pants in the store.
Proper Lady: Ha. That would be funny though. And I would get to go home early.

------------

Yes, that really happened. Verbatim. I made sure to remember it for this blog.

Why was Lady 1 also known as BoxCutter? Well, when I asked her where *Claire's Surprise* was, she led me to the aisle while proceeding to scratch her back with the blade of box cutter. No, not the handle end. Yes, with the RAZORBLADE itself.

Wow.

(And no, they did not sell what I was looking for. I ended up buying the kite at Walmart)

My Top 50 (#'s 50-46 Here)...45-41

As a disclaimer, these songs are my favorite. I don't necessarily consider them the best songs ever, but they are songs that I turn the radio up EVERY TIME they come on. I sing them loud. I know all the words. They make me happy.

45. Last Kiss - Pearl Jam...I know this is a remake, but I think Eddie Vedder's voice is so perfect for this song.

44. Creed - Third Day...One of my favorites off of their live worship album. Not only does it, very simply, lay out the Christian faith, but dude can flat sing. Love those baritones...it is a theme on my list.

43. Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin...I thought I would rank this MUCH higher, but it has not been quite as wonderful as it used to be for me. Still a favorite, but not like it was.

42. Sexyback - Justin Timberlake...I might rock out and jump around a bit when this comes on. I am bobbing my head and grooving a bit just writing this now. It is also a fantastic song to run to. Go on Justin...get your sexy on.

41. Right to Be Wrong - Joss Stone...I am very critical of voices. It takes a lot to impress me. Joss Stone, may simply be one of the best in the biz...and I expect that her career, while maybe not commercially, but certainly musically, may end up being one of the most influential ones. Don't believe me? Just check out a couple of her other videos on You Tube. He voice will blow you away.

SexyBack is one kick ass song.

The title of this post was intriguing. What if Justin Timberlake had an itchy back?

I think I hear a song parody!

Dirrrtyy Baaaaabe
You see these shack-les baby I'm your slaaaaavve . . .

Confession: I celebrated my 29th birthday for the seventh time in September and when I hear this song I have been known to A)Play it on repeat B) Choreograph dance moves in my head and C) Break out in said choreographed dance moves when alone.

Sometimes a girl's gotta set the Solid Gold Dancer inside free.

Oh, that's all kinds of classy up in the Dollar Store. Of course, I totally respect you getting the conversation down verbatum, for I'd have done the same thing. Heck, I might have stuck around a bit longer for more jewels like that one.

You are SO lucky!

And SexyBack? My, but I love that song.

Hope the surprise-filled date was great!

Really, SexyBack just makes you want to move! The boxbutter lady just makes me want to vomit. Wow.

Katelin - Yup...sure is.

RS27 - I think we need to write it and send it to Weird Al...got any connections?

Ex - She was not messing around!

April - Sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do.

DKG - The date was great...

CH - Vommitting did cross my mind.
