Oh, I laughed.
Something’s got to give…
The boy and the girl are currently studying at different campuses at their school. This means dropping one off first (the boy, because he starts earlier and it’s conveniently geographically more sensible too) and then the other (you should have worked out whom and the reasons why from the clues above).
The boy isn’t fond of music in the car, so while he’s around, we chat about school, plans for the day ahead, the traffic, the mountain, or whatever else takes our fancy. However, no sooner has he exited the vehicle, I get the call from the back to “Hit the music button!” and the remaining occupants of the car (there are two of us) indulge ourselves in whatever is next on the iPod.
This morning, it was this:
What a tune.
You may also remember Suede from such hits as Stay Together.
It’s not a long way between campuses. A song and a bit, generally. And because of that, the random nature of the “Hit the music button!” policy has backfired a couple of times, perhaps most notably when we’d enjoyed some very agreeable Erasure on the way down to the other site, only to become distracted as the song finished and the next one started and the loud bit of Slipknot’s Wait And Bleed kicked in right as the head of KeyStage 1 opened the car door to let my daughter out.
Now, I maintain that there’s a time and a place for Slipknot, but I’m fully willing to admit that it’s probably just not at 7:40 on a grey Thursday morning, right next to a school playground filled with 5 and 6 year olds. Awkward.
We’re more careful these days.
So, dear listener, what would happen if you were to “Hit the music button”, right now? You next two random iPod* (*other mp3 players are available) songs in the comments section below, please.
You will be judged by me on the first, and – as described above – potentially by the local teaching staff on the second.
Nice idea this. The very first and the very last frames of popular series.
I’m not a big fan of these sorts of dramas – I’ve only ever watched one of these (Twin Peaks), and I can confidently say that I’ve never watched a single episode of any of the others. Too much commitment.
You’ll have to watch it at least twice, because you miss details from either one or the other when you watch it first time.
You can see that Lost and Sons of Anarchy knew that someone was going to do this one day.
What a day.
Several hours on this beautiful beach in Struisbaai, under dramatic skies:
And then the drive home, any negative feelings about leaving Agulhas expunged by having almost the entirety of the newly-resurfaced R316 to ourselves.
Other photos will have to wait, I want red wine and football this evening. Priorities, ne?
But if you find yourself desperate for some 6000 imagey goodness, firstly, have a word with yourself, and then secondly, head to my Instagram.
