I was driving to the YMCA, and I turned on my local Hip Hop station to get psyched up, and they were running this segment called Throw Backs. It's where they play an old song, quote unquote, old...older. From '98, they played Lauryn Hill's Doo Wop (That Thing). And you know what? I was thrown back. I heard this song a lot in those days. I heard it on the dance floor...yeah - the dance floor, I actually was on the dance floor...or on the edge of it...but sometimes I'd get on the dance floor...like if I'd had enough to drink and it was crowded enough and somebody grabbed me by the hand and dragged me. I'd go out there. But I remember hearing it this one time, I was walking into the 7-11 to buy a twelve-pack - this guy was coming out of the 7-11 with a twelve-pack - and he was singing it. He was singing it well. And he was smiling REAL BIG. And he had it right. That song was in the air everywhere, you understand. And it was Friday evening, you know, The Big Quitting Time. And I just remember how terrific and awesome that night was...a great song on the airwaves...got my twelve-pack...was going to be meetin up with people later... You know what? I HOPE THAT GUY WON THE LOTTERY. Here's why: Because life is a party. Life is a workout. Life is a lottery ticket. And you do have to watch out. But you can still have some fun too though see.
