The results of the HNT poll are in and the winner is.........Au Naturel! Five folks said I should paint the barn door. Thirty-nine said leave it alone. Twelve said either way worked for them. Even if the numbers were reversed I wouldn't start shellaqing my face but I was really curious to know what people think in general about it all. ZombieSlayer must be in marketing because he made specific comment saying I skewed the polling by not smiling as much in painted face picture. Sorry, pal. No re-dos. I think I have only now recovered from having that gunk on my face a week and a half ago. Hehehehe. Thanks to all
ZombieSlayer tagged me with a fun little meme. I am supposed to pick songs that when I hear them I am instantly reminded of a certain place, event, or person and then tell about the person, place, or event I am reminded of. No rules on how many songs.
The first song that sprang to mind was Heaven by Bryan Adams.
It makes me think of Sean back in high school. He was the most adorable thing going. Not especially tall, but had the sturdy build of a wrestler which I have always just adored. Nothing like a strong set of shoulders and a broad chest when enjoying a nice warm hug or whatever.....ahem. He had dark brown eyes that just sparkled with life and the sweetest shy imp grin.
He was a year older than me and I met him in trigonometry class. He was the only thing that made that class endurable. I'd sit and watch him from the back of the class. He'd be all hunched over his work, concentrating and actually understanding it. He was adorable, smart, and didn't seem caught up in the macho one-upmanship so common to teenage boys. What was not to adore? I thought there was no way on God's green earth he'd ever take notice of me so I just admired him from afar.
I was shocked beyond shock to find out from a friend that he not only noticed me but was sweet on me and afraid I would not be interested in him. Word got back to him via the high school grapevine that I'd be receptive and he worked up the courage to ask me out. He was so sweet and shy about it. I thought it was endearing how nervous he was. I very nervously though eagerly accepted and numbers were exchanged. The first date was to see the Rambo sequel. Not exactly what I had hoped for, and he didn't seem to appreciate my astute observation that Rambo had used one more special explosive arrow tip than he had actually been given, but we still had a nice time and decided we definitely wanted to go out again.
Next date was to the drive-in movies. I have no idea what movie we went to see. We were too busy steaming up the car windows while Bryan Adams sang Heaven. We dated for several months and I guess that song was a real hit at the time because we both got to the point where if we heard that song we were all over each other. We even caught up a few years later and had a good giggle over how that song and the game 'Padiddle' (see a car with one headlight, aka a padiddle, and you get a kiss) used to provide endless amounts of fun. Aaaahhh young love.....
No official tags but I had such fun going down memory lane, I'd love to hear from some of you about the songs that take you to a special moment, place, or person.
