What if....

So the other day we were playing the "what if..." game at Brian and Lloyd's new place. Now if you don't know what the game is, let me explain: you start off with kind of a big group of people, at the minimum 5-6. Everyone gets a sheet of paper and writes down a question beginning with "what if...". For example, "What if the sky wasn't blue?" After everyone is done asking a question, everyone folds it up and puts the question in a pile. Someone then goes around and passes a random question back to everyone. Everyone then answers the question and puts in back into the pile. Then, everyone picks up a question and out loud, one person reads their question and then the person next to them reads their answer. Then that person reads their question and the person after them reads their answer. Hilarity ensues because most of the time the question and answer don't match, hence making it funny. Ha Ha. Laugh clown laugh.

Well, for some stupid reason, almost every bloody question involved me. Mind you, I really didn't care. In fact, it was flattering. Until THE question and answer followed together. Sean Madsen read the question, "What if Michelle wasn't such a flirt?" Then Lloyd who was sitting next to him, kind of uncomfortably looked up and reluctantly said, "Then her lawn wouldn't be so wet." Everyone could not stop laughing at that for at least five minutes. I, in my embarrassment, hid my face. Meanwhile, Payton and Karen couldn't stop laughing. Payton literally had tears in his eyes from the laughter.

I was mortified.

Sleazy Saxophones

Today i was sitting at work assisting the doctor when this song comes on. It was Sade's "Your Love Is King" and it had the nastiest (good nasty) , sleaziest sounding alto sax I've heard. I've heard the song MANY times on that particular station (we have it always and forever set to smooth jazz: 94.7 the wave)

In this instance, the song was awkward because it was really quiet, none of us were talking, the doctor, nor i, and especially the patient with his mouth propped open. So as soon as the the sax came on, i got fidgety and uncomfortable and turned on the loud suction for no reason and suctioned the patients mouth when he had no saliva and i think the patient got the hint too, cause it was almost like he appreciated the extra noise and unnecessary suction of his already dry mouth.

so in honor of my awkward work moment, I've compiled a small list of sleazy sax songs.


Careless Whisper - George Michaels or Wham. Same thing!

Young Americans - David Bowie

Hungry Eyes - Eric Carmen

I Can't go for that (no can do) - Hall and Oates

Super Freak
- Rick James

Urgent- Foreigner

Rio - Duran Duran

Never Tear Us Apart - INXS super sleazy alert!

Get Outta My Dreams, Get into My Car
- Billy Ocean
