culture shock, it’s the real deal

so today, i was in a room with about 9 other ladies – all pretty close to my age – and a song comes on the hi-fi.  it was the second time today i’d heard this song.  “ob la di, ob la da, life goes on….”.  i’m pretty sure it’s the beatles and i’m positve it’s the theme song to life goes on and i say, “oh, i loved that show.”  and no one else had heard of it.  they didn’t know who corky was.  they didn’t know that kellie martin becca was ever in love with an hiv positive chad lowe jesse.

and it reminded me of something pretty much unrelated…

(this is a pretty big set up for something that maybe probably only i will find funny.)

one sunday morning michael and i are standing around at church talking to the youth pastor and his wife – this was several years ago in colorado.  and for some reason, i can’t for the life of me remember why, the wife of the youth pastor does the ol’ 70’s porn song “bom chicka wah wah” thing.  and about that time up walks a most prim and proper lady and she gives all of us a look of total disqust and says, “oh, i hated seinfeld”

i love that!

(and after michael reads this he’s gonna wanna know if i’m gonna tell everyone about my small snippet of a butt slapping “save a horse ride a cowboy” dance performed in front of the pastor.  and the answer to that is, “nope.”)

  1. Hahahaha, and here I was thinking church was dull! Not in Colorado apparently.

    it’s all about the people! takes just the right crowd 😀

  2. So funny. I loved Life Goes On. I loved that song too. Now I’m going to have to track it down and hear it–the Life Goes On version. Save a Horse Ride a Cowboy is so funny too–except if my 5 year old’s singing it!

    Good luck getting the bottom’s on. I’ll be thinking of you.

    i love that song, too!! and it just so happens that at the time if my grand performance the youth were lip syncing it!!

  3. Hey I wanna hear that story again I was there and can remember that whole evening , what fun!

    wasn’t it a great evening!!

  4. Several teenage girls (one of them a pastor’s daughter – those predictably unpredictable PK’s!) thought it would be a good idea to karaoke “Save a Horse; Ride a Cowboy” on stage during the Volunteer Appreciation Banquet at church.

    Transplantingme was inspired and thought she would get a good laugh from some friends at another table by demonstrating just what saving a horse by riding a cowboy looked like – complete with several giddy-yaps to her hind quarters.

    But turning around as she finished her dance, she noticed the unfortunate positioning of the senior pastor, who happened to have a front-row seat to her western bump and grind.

    Ride ’em, Cowgirl!

    michael mr casual observer, thank you for your input. but fyi – if i want your input i’ll ask for it. oh, and i love you!

  5. Life Goes On was my comfort once I returned back to North Texas from a weekend home. It was a great show.

    You reall should have done the dance. Once you get to know your pastor, you find they really do have another side to them. My best friend is our former pastor’s wife. If I hadn’t shown them my non-church side, I don’t think they would have let their hair down. We now see Andy from two perspectives…AM and PM (Andy M. and Pastor M.)! We can SO tell which personality is out at even given time…and it is NOT always the one you expect.

    oh, i did the dance. and i did it good.

  6. You are definitely not the only one who finds any of this funny! LOL. I can just picture the look on the pastors face. He probably loved it! LOL

    i wouldn’t know. as soon as i realized what was going on i hightailed it out of there. didn’t look back or anything!!

  7. OMG, Monica, we SO lost in trivia last night because of TV trivia. And you would have know at least ONE of the stupid people on some show called The Office, right? We were tied for third! Against a buddy of mine’s lame-ass team. And we’re super smart, right? We had SIX for heaven’s sake. And yet, between the 6 of us, we only had one name out of four from The Office. What does that say? I believe people without lives and who already worship the TV tube are responsible. That means Glenn 😉 But no one at all had a clue. And we came in 4th.

    sadly, my oldest could have handled that one! michael, too. can’t believe glenn couldn’t get it. he probably knew just didn’t want it to be known that he knew!!
