This week's book is by John Grisham, and if you've ever read or seen "A Time to Kill," you'll likely want to pick this one up, too. Um, also, let's all cross our collective fingers and toes that Matthew McConaughey takes the lead role in this one, too, and that maybe he puts an extra spin on it ala "Magic Mike" and then we can all die happy.
Sorry, I got distracted. Click here to check out the review and discover more great book recommendations!
So, my dad is more hip than I am on a day-to-day basis, keeping up with pop culture and sports and life in general in a way that has me being like “Wait, I’m the one in my 30s, how do you know this?!” But who are we kidding, that doesn’t really surprise any of us. I go to bed before him, too.
So I shouldn’t have been surprised when he told me about the Evolution of Hip Hop Dancing he saw on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and Will Smith the other night. I was like “Dad, I’ve seen it and was going to put it on the blog for Friday.” To which he approved, and so here you go.
(also, I thought Sean Connery was in The Abyss and my dad was like “No, dear. And don’t try to confuse your father. It was that guy from Apollo 13.” And then I said Gary Sinese and then he sighed and probably shook his head. I couldn’t see it because we were on the phone, but I’m pretty sure that’s what happened.)
I don't know why this makes me laugh so much, but it does. Even Brian Williams is more hip than I am!
This song popped up on my iPod a few days ago at a time when I really needed it. I love when that happens.
And when I first heard this nearly 20 years ago (Jesus), I was like "I totally get it." And now I listen and laugh and think "Wow, if only I'd known...."
Except I still don't always read the instructions. Everyone has their crosses to bear.
Enjoy. And put it on repeat. I swear it'll help.
