If you’ve ever racked your brain trying to come up with a way to show your significant other that you love them and they mean the world to you, rack no further. I’ve discovered the answer just this afternoon.
It’s not a gift you can go out and buy (although depending on your music library you might need to budget a $0.99 expenditure). It’s not a gift that requires any special equipment or tools. It’s not flowers, chocolate, hot air balloon ride, jewelry, golf game, massage, cupcakes, metal welding class (some people around here like that kind of thing), cleaning the apartment, puppy, kitten, thoughtful note, home cooked meal, or a hug. It’s not your usual old song and dance.
It’s a SPECIAL song and dance, featuring Annie Lennox and whatever gyrations the spirit moves you to perform with it. In my case, a lot of swaying and crooning, interpretive gestures, and then some cowboy-stance high leg kicks. Take ten minutes to learn the lyrics, then get your significant other seated on the couch, lull them into a quiet moment, get about 1 minute 30 seconds into the song, then turn up the volume and let ‘er rip.
Believe me, either (s)he will run for the hills, or you’ll see a lot of head shaking and a poor attempt at grin suppression. In which case you know you’ve got him/her for life, hook, line and sinker.
