Her: What aspects of 12 Ft. Ninja do you find appealing?
Me: What song did you listen to?
Her: The one you suggested, what was it? Invincible or something like that?
Me: Yes, didn’t like it?
Her: Just asking what you find appealing.
Me: The versatility, the musicality, the lyricism. It goes from being heavy to pulling back…I love how eclectic their songs are.
Her: I agree with all that.
Her: Regardless of genre I have a hard time enjoying songs with excessive use of cymbals.
Her: And yelling, maybe I could get used to it but i usually choose not to listen to it.
Me: LOL. Isn’t that all rock music?
Her: I do believe so. 🙂
Me: I meant the cymbals, not the yelling. I like their music because it covers the spectrum of human emotion.
Her: Yes to the cymbals. I don’t get it. They are so annoying.
Me: They’re amazing.
Me: Just like you.
Her: So, the title of the book you are going to write this year is How To Say The Right Things To Girls. Make sure there is a picture of cymbals on the back cover.
Me: There’d only be one page to the book.
Her: And what would it say?
Me: Speak from the heart.
That exchange has been on my mind for hours. For a multitude of reasons I suppose.
The woman I had the conversation with is amazing. Simply amazing. Physically, mentally. I would count her as a dear friend, and though I have moments I would throttle her with the rope, in the library…I hold her in the highest esteem…and those eyes…I mean for reals…yet I digress.
Beyond all that though, it got me thinking about romance, and myself, in 2017.
It’s weird how thoughts can sometimes swirl in our head. As I think about it now, it’s hard to articulate my thoughts.
But, I think they’re a culmination of having a sweet moment, with a sweet woman, and reflecting upon myself, and the continued evolution I hope to see in 2017.
And so, I have my first idea on how to make my first million…and I’ll be more than happy to give 15% to my friend…maybe.
So gentlemen, what would your “How To Say The Right Things To Girls” book say? I’d love to hear.
