I'm Flattered By Your Fascination With Me

For Day 15 of Sara's Challenge, she asks:

"Some songs bring us back to a moment. Share with us a song and the moment it reminds you of."

I was working on this post yesterday. I had gotten out my iPod and was scanning through my songs trying to find just one worthy of mention. Every song I have has some sort of meaning to me and will take me to moment (or two).

As a matter of fact, a few months ago, I was working on a short story where the main character was reminded of a conversation and its true intentions after the fact because of a song.

Anyway, I have quite a bit of music on my iPod. And I was generally having a good time. I was going through Alanis Morissette and remembered her song, "Uninvited," just out of the blue. It's not even on my iPod.

The first time I heard this song was in Florida in 1998. We had just left to come home and stopped at a gas station to fill up. I was all pouty and whiny because I wasn't ready to come home. And then this song came on.

It was a little "Ironic" to say the least.

Now, I realize that my moment for "Uninvited" isn't that all that special. So, in the back of my mind whilst Big Daddy and I are running errands, I am running through songs in my head trying to come up with something really spectacular.

Like something you'd read in those good blogs.

So, we were in the freezer section at the grocery store. I am debating on which vegetables I could trick lovingly ask the kids to eat when I focused in on the song that was playing.

It was "Uninvited."

I haven't heard that song played on the radio or elsewhere in YEARS.

Clearly, she wanted to be included.
