Last night after work, I was hyper and wound-up. I was so energetic, in fact, that before I knew it, it was 11 o'clock and Matt and I were just hanging out in the kitchen watching the top 100 songs of the nineties re-run on VH1. That was so fun. We were laughing at the comedians' commentary of the songs and critiquing the order of the list.
Before I knew it, M slipped downstairs and returned with a large black binder case. Enclosed in the case were all of his old cds. He asked me if I wanted to laugh at him and placed a stack of strategically pulled mix cds in front of me to listen to. I love nothing more than a good mix. In fact, playlist crafting is an art of mine. I enthusiastically accepted his offering of cds.
One by one, we popped the cds into my computer and laughed and bonded over all the old tunes. The best part was when a song reminded me of fun times I had during my junior year of high school and he simply responded, "I was in the middle of college...think about how much fun I had with that song." Guess that's a fair response to get as I was trying to play the "you're-older-than-me" card.
We sat around in our pajamas for hours listening to these mix cds...until 2AM, to be exact. I got to interject some of my old music into the conversation, as well. It was so fun, and to top it all off, I now have some new old tunes to import today.
