hahaha ahhh Tone Loc and the Wild Thing...gotta love it.
This song reminds me of my first car. I was the coolest of all my friends, because i was the first to buy my own car, and not have to rely on my mother's car being available. Besides...i had already seized the engine in my mother's car. Well...not really...but i got blamed for it anyway haha.
I bought my first car, when i was 17, back in 1988. It was a little 2 door hatchback, Toyota Starlet. Jason used to make fun of it every time i drove him and his friends somewhere...he used to laugh and tell his friends that the little 1200cc engine was really a V8. I didn't care though...none of them had their own cars. The sewing machine engine, never seemed to stop me from getting speeding tickets!
There are several songs that remind me of the time i spent cruising around in the Super Starlet with my friends. The stereo was always turned right up. Tone Loc and his Wild Thing, and Funky Cold Medina...are right up at the top of that list.
Those were cool, fun times. That is, until everyone else caught up with me and bought their own cars...and then i was not as popular as i once was, anymore.
Kids are funny like that...huh? haha That was because i was so anti smoking back then, and would not allow anyone to smoke in my car. It used to piss me off , that i always had to pay for all the petrol, while my friends spent their money on smokes.
They soon got their own cars...and my smoke free vehicle was no longer the first choice for a mode of transport.
I am crashing early tonight. I am beat after the morning and afternoon with Dan, walking Nixon, cleaning, my crappy sleep last night... etc etc etc. I am going to try to get a really good sleep tonight, then keep myself busy, out doing things tomorrow.
I am dying to get the girls back on Sunday.
Back later...if i can't sleep. X
