I don’t know what it is guys! Seriously. Last night I was flipping through the channels and on CMT I saw a young John Travolta as a cowboy. So naturally I stopped. My jaw dropped and I squealed for about five minutes. After my eyes finished glazing over I realized I was watching a movie I had never seen, but had heard of, called Urban Cowboy. I then finished the whole thing by myself on the couch. It was AMAZING. (And not having a job to wake up for is amazing too!)
And after all this country nonsense, and seeing John Travolta in Wrangler’s and chaps, it occurred to me that I might have really missed out on a great life path, I should have been a cowgirl!
It only makes sense, I mean I have the fascination with ponies! And I was raised in Poway, which in San Diego terms is notorious for being “country” there was the Poway rodeo and there was even a cowboy gang at school. I was friends with a few of them! They all wore those camel colored Wrangler jackets and spoke with a twang despite the fact they were all totally from California.
I don’t know why I didn’t see it before, the appeal of REALLY tight high-waisted jeans, big hair and boyfriends that push you around and say, “Get me another beer and fix me something to eat!” The drama of it is all so romantic.
I can even handle some country music. I mean, the old stuff isn’t so bad like Dolly Parton. There’s so much glitter and sparkle! I could have gotten into that!
I just feel like it might be too late for me to declare myself as country. I should have followed Audra Delagrange’s example. She was in my 10th grade chemistry class and she was the Poway Rodeo Queen. She had big hair and red boots, and even though she would give out autographed pictures of herself and sign them, “Poway Rodeo Queen,” she was damn hot and had great legs.
Anyway I guess I can just blame my upper-middle-class suburbia upbringing YET AGAIN for all of the colorful craziness I’ve missed out on in life.
Man! It’s hard to be me.
In other news I have put some new things up in my etsy shop.
I love you all and hope you have a great weekend!
