And Not For A Reason You Can Guess

*After reading Unfinished Person’s comment, I realized my post may come across as fiction.  For the record?  This is an absolute TRUE STORY.  Sigh.  Yes, this is actually my life!*

They played my song.  This is the theme for day three of the 30-day blog challenge.  While pondering this subject, a vision from a moment long ago flashed through my head.  And then I knew.  This topic was going to be easy.

This is one of those times when you don’t quite remember all of the details.  I am not sure where we had been, but alcohol was definitely involved.

My old high school buddy was riding shotgun, apparently drunk as a skunk.  Since I have never driven drunk, I was obviously the designated driver of the night.  My girlfriend needed a ride home, so that was where I was taking her.

We were in the stage between high school and real lives with husbands and kids.  The time when the world is your oyster and all is indeed right with the world.

Shellie turned on my radio.  After the announcer finished his spiel, a song came on that I had never really paid much attention to.  It was “Roam” by the B-52’s.  I knew the words but had never thought much about the tune.

My girlfriend, on the other hand, squealed in drunken delight and began to sing as loud as she could.

“I hear a wind… Whistling air…. Whispering…. In my ear.”

What can you do but get caught up in the moment?  By the second verse, she and I were cruising towards her home, belting out Roam as loud as we could.  And you know what?  We sounded pretty darn good.

“Roam if you want to!

Roam around the world!

Roam if you want to!

Without anything but the love we feeeeeEEEEELLLLLLLLL!”

Coincidentally, when the song ended, we were just outside her door.  I turned off the radio, and in that instant moment of silence, Shellie looked over and said matter of factly, “I just peed in your seat.”

<moment of silence>

To this day, when Roam comes on the radio, I turn it on, belt it out and look over to see if there is pee in my seat.  And think to myself, “they played my song.”

  • Too funny…

    …if I were telling the story, though, I’d end up being the one who peed in the seat. 🙂

    • Ha ha sadly, this is a true story – but maybe when Roam comes on I need to go ahead and pee in my own seat!

  • I can’t believe you picked the B-52s.  I LOVE them.  Of course, I don’t think they should result in peeing in the seat.

    • Ha ha!  I’m sorry – I can’t change the past.  I promise promise promise not to pee ANY time the B-52’s come on!  🙂  I remember when Rock Lobster first came out – I thought the B52’s were SO COOL!

  • Obviously your friend thought the song was “Pee if you want to…” by the P-52s.

  • Great story! I would have been the drunk one peeing in the car! My husband and I have a B52’s song as well. “Rock Lobster” is our moving song, so as we carry things in or out of homes, we crank that one up!

  • I love those guys!  Still, I hate peeing anyplace but a toilet.  Sadly, it has happened though.

    Bwhahahahhahahahahaha! Katherine, that was HILARIOUS!!!!

    And btw, I ADORE the B-52’s! “Love Shack” is one of my all-time favorites!

    Great post, my friend……X

  • HAHAHAHAHA. That is NOT the ending I expected. Way too funny. Not so much that she peed in your seat, but that it happened… oh my. Great story. 

  • BAHAHAHA!   Now that is a great story!    

  • Hahahahahahahahahahaha…500 points… hahahahahahahahahha…

  • Ha ha ha!  That ending came as a surprise.  I bet it did to you too!

  • Well, that was just way too funny!  I’m glad that the only bad thing that happened to the car was a little bit of pee.  Now I’m sure to certainly laugh (probably all the way the toilet) whenever I hear that song.  😉

  • Nice twist!  I totally thought you were heading for an impromptu road trip.  I was expecting that one of you was going to say “Let’s go to Vegas!” or Key West, or Cabo.  But it was realer than that.  Piss on your passenger seat is about as real as it gets.  (consider yourself lucky it was only #2!)

  • Well THAT was unexpected!

  • mikewjattoomanymornings

    OMG, that is funny. And disgusting. Mostly disgusting. But in a really funny way.

    Are you still friends?

  • Holy crap, that’s absolutely hilarious!!

  • Oh that’s TOOO funny! I loved this story!
