A Funny Story and A Funny Song

I'm going to attempt to do this memey thing called 30 Days of Song. I will not post this every day, because oh-my-pants-I'm-bored-already. Instead I'll post once or twice a week, as I feel like. So there. I am unrepentantly stealing this from Jen O. at My Tornado Alley. She rocks. I'm not sure if she stole it from somewhere, but here we go. 

Also, we are in the home stretch ya'll. We may finish this before I die.

A Song that Makes Me Laugh

When I was in high school, I needed (for some possibly-academic-team-related reason) to call a boy who was a couple-three years older than I was. I was strangely nervous. Because, you know, older boy. Teehee. When the phone rang, I did exactly what my grandmother had taught me to do, "Hello, this is Jessi, may I please speak to Cthulu*?" His mother told me, sweetly, that I could not because he and his friend Godzilla were at a concert in Cincinnati. "Oh. Do you know who they went to see?" I'm not even sure why I asked. I mean, it didn't make any difference. I guess I thought it was polite conversation, or maybe I thought I could ask him how it was when I did get to talk to him.

"Hm..." she replied, "They may be tall?" After excusing myself and wondering what their height had to do with anything, I finished my homework, did what I did and went to bed. Lying there in the dark, staring at the ceiling, waiting for sleep, I suddenly started laughing. They Might be Giants.

*His name wasn't really Cthulu. But it would have been cooler if it was.
