Stop! Police!!

There’s something I want to have, and in order to win it, I need to convince the folks who are giving it away that I deserve it. The thing I want is the new Police cd, and I think my story will be pretty compelling.

Back in the day, when the Police were all the rage, I was in high school. I went skating every weekend, and man, I knew all their songs. I’d be spinning, and shuffling and singing. It was Synchronicity. Law, I was the hottest thing on 8 wheels. Roxanne had nothing on me. Wheels, because I live here in coastal North Carolina, and the concept of ICE skating as entertainment was totally foreign to this area way back then. Every Breath You Take has that slight salt tang, and ice just doesn’t fair too well here.

Fast forward to today: I am held hostage in a house with either Kelly Clarkson or Kenny Chesney constantly coming from one set of speakers or another. Occasionally, I get to listen to both at once, and let me tell ya, that will totally put Voices Inside My Head and I am often Driven to Tears. I want that Police cd so that I can turn the tables, create a little musical Fallout of my own. Muhahahahahah. I could be the one blasting my tunes and annoying the rest of the family. And that would make me very happy. Even yarn ho’s deserve a bit of happiness right?

The fact is that there is a real Hole in My Life without this cd set, and now that The Police are going on a new worldwide tour, I’m telling folks Don’t Stand So Close to Me, because you might get hit while I’m dancing to….
