Time seems so surreal lately…Do you ever feel like that too? My oldest son will be 7 in April…(How does that happen so quickly?!) I know it’s only February but there are so many things that reminded me of younger days, days that seemed like just yesterday, when in fact they are closer to 10 or 20 years ago.
I had a dentist appointment Tuesday, when N’Sync’s song Bye-Bye-Bye came on. I got all excited… this song was practically my anthem in college. I was immediately transported back to days in my dorm room day, when I literally had hundreds of mini dance parties to this song.
My roommate at the time was a dance major and always appreciated a song with fun beats. We loved to ‘hate’ those boy bands like Backstreet Boys and Brittney Spears, since we were so cool as college freshman, or so we thought. 🙂
But hating really meant cranking it as loud as possible and dancing all craazy to it… I even set my computer to shut down singing the chorus. You can tell I really didn’t like that song, right? 😉
Well, about a month while driving my oldest to school, my boy band love came out again. It was during the usual morning rush hour where there’s nothing but talk and commercials on the radio, that I first introduced my boys to the Backstreet Boys. I flipped to the CD’s that I never use while sitting at a ridiculously long red light. Of all the CD’s to chose from, it was Backstreet Boys: Backstreet’s Back. (Go ahead and laugh… you know you love them too! BSB FOREVER!!!)
Anyways, the boys ended up loving the songs. So much in fact, then request ‘We’ve Got It Going On’ every morning… of course those silly boys don’t call it that but “The Farting Song” instead. *sigh* Boys.
The irony of choosing this particular CD is how much it reminds me of being a kid. Fast forward and it’s been 20 full years since the to the BSB came out in full force. In fact, the BSB just celebrated a 20 year anniversary with releasing a documentary at the movie theatre.
Not gonna lie, I want to go see it. :p
