Hello everyone. I guess I’m finally coming from behind the curtain and making my first post. It was inspired by Revisedgewater’s playlist post and a trip to a new grocery store. It also illustrates why they call me “Sybil” at work. My coworker says she sees 1,700 personalities in me. Like the Grimm fairy tales, I look quite unassuming on the outside but still waters run deep.
Revis posted a most excellent playlist of songs last night. Most are in my collection as well. Seether, Breaking Benjamin and Disturbed have a continuous spot in the rotation. In addition, Rise Against holds a prominent place. Eminem is also tops on the list except when mom is in the car. I often start my day in the office singing the last song I heard in the car. Lose it by Eminem often makes an appearance and not just the chorus.
Anyway, I was in search of inexpensive produce because it is so fucking costly where I live. $3.99 per lb for peppers anyone? No thanks. The coworker who calls me Sybil suggested this store she frequents. Peppers are $.99 per lb and she swore they are quality. I was always suspicious of this chain because how could they charge $3 less for the same thing? I took her advice and bought not only produce but my entire weekly menu for under $40. I don’t know how they do it and I don’t care…
So here is where the schizophrenic part comes in. While I’m shopping, I noticed they are playing really cool music and I was singing along. This elderly gentleman was laughing and I apologized for my horrible singing voice. He said he was laughing because I was a kid (thanks!) and knew the words to the song they were playing. It was “The way you look tonight”, sung by Tony Bennett. I didn’t know what to say but thanks. While I continued shopping I heard music by Sinatra and other classics. When I was young my cousins laughed and called it “Old People Music”. I chose to disagree.
My playlist for the week has just expanded. I can’t wait to see the reaction on my coworker’s face when I come humming on Monday.
