I Believe In You

There are times in a man's life when he must submit to the stereotype(s):
  1. I do NOT need to stop for directions, dammit. It is my birthright to navigate. Epic poems have been written about the wanderlust of man. Deal with it.
  2. Better to ask forgiveness than permission. Yeah yeah yeah - we all have feelings and, sure, we should talk about things collectively before we make decisions that affect everyone. But it can't always be an episode of Eight Is Enough. You'll survive. I promise.
  3. Dancefloor Divas. That's right. DANCEFLOOR DIVAS. Lay on the judgment if you must, but when you see me rockin' my treadmill and I have that little shit-eatin' grin on my face and you wonder, "Girl why he so happy?" as you're down on the floor cracking your body, you'd better know the answer is Kylie Effing Minogue, OK?
Check out the latest, "Boombox," which is a collection of new-century dance remixes. My former co-worker and current awesome friend - one Miss Neika Dawn - know what I'm talkin' 'bout. When I first joined the company we were discussing music and we started talking about Kylie. Without thinking - I was still trying to be professional bossy-boss (the hardest thing for me to portray) - I let slip, as I brought up the "Slow" Chemical Brothers remix ... "OMG, you must download, it will put you on a pole!"

We laughed through the awkwardness of the moment and the next day she came in and said, "Remember what you had said when we was talkin' 'bout Kylie? You true! You know you true!"

Now if that's not a great reference, I don't know what is. Enjoy the weekend!
