I gotta hand it to him, the way he just tucked a dollar in my hand and said, "Go play some songs for me," made me want to:
a. Buy a Trapper Keeper on eBay
b. Buy a Bic ballpoint pen
c. Wait for the Trapper Keeper to come in the mail
d. Open the package up
e. Write his initials, a plus sign, then my initials using the ballpoint pen on the Trapper Keeper
f. Draw a heart around our initials
g. Clutch the Trapper Keeper against my chest and sigh heavily
Forget the Dollar Value Menu at Mickey D's: this right here is the real value deal. For only a dollar and a simple request, he gets to be in my daydreams for the next week. It was fun to pick out songs that I thought he'd like. And, it was fun to come back to my seat and see his face light up each time one of "my/his" songs came on. It was fun all around. Gimme another buck! I wanna do it again!
If you had a buck to spend to impress your date, what three songs would you pick?
[In case you're wondering: I picked "1969" by The Stooges, "What's So Funny 'Bout Peace, Love, and Understanding" by Elvis Costello, and "Fade to Black" by Metallica. Btdubs, the alternate title of this post should be Boxerdropper: I Am AWESOME At Spending Your Dollar On The Jukebox.]
