I Wanna Be Sedated!

As I was strolling down the aisles at the King's super mega-plex market today I could not believe what came blaring through the sound system. The Ramones, "I Wanna Be Sedated!" What's kinda funny is that the store was filled with senior citizens, some in wheel chairs, some with oxygen, some moving very slowly. But not for long. That song really got the place jumpin.' Or at least, it got me jumpin'. I don't think too many other people were listening, or even noticed the music. I had to try really hard not to bust out laughing. It's so hard not to sing along or dance while listening to the Ramones. "Bam, bam,bam,bam, ba bam, bam, bam, bam, I wanna be sedated."

I really enjoy my time shopping with the seniors. It's very pleasant. And I always feel good when I have the opportunity to help one of them. It's okay, because I am not in a hurry. I love it when the senior greeter says "Good morning young lady" That makes me feel special, even though he calls all the women "young ladies.". He always wears a red bow-tie. What a charmer! Speaking of red, I think I might join the Red Hat Society when I turn 50. I like their philosophy of just having fun. Maybe I can turn them on to The Ramones.

Well, I don't really know what the point of this post is, other than to point out that sometimes tuning in to the background music can make your day a little brighter.
