Do you ever hear a song and it reminds you of the most fun day in your life?
This mix has me remembering bumpin and grinding Friday nights at the Guvernment. Then coming out at 4 am with my then besties, half naked, as was the tradition in those days and I had the body to pull it off,) only to find our car nowhere in sight.
My friend immediately starts to cry, the other two look equally upset, so I pull out my cell phone (which in retrospect was a mini weapon it was so large,) to call the cops, who politely inform me that our car has been towed. Apparently we were not as ‘lucky’ as we thought and the parking was not free….. In those days the $10 parking fee mattered A LOT.
So there we were, not a penny between the four of us, being honked at by every passing car, till a fella I had met earlier stopped and asked if everything was okay.
He eventually drove us to grab the car, and I remember coming home at 5 am, and trying to sneak downstairs only to hear my dad’s voice like God from the heavens, yelling, “Where the hell were you?”
Funny how a song can remind you what fun it was to be 18….
