Ever completely forget that other people were in the house, and start doing something that even you think is kind of weird?
Yesterday morning, I was standing in front of the bathroom mirror, shaving my head, when I started singing:
"Shaving my dome,
Shaving my big white dome,
I don't get razor burn
Because I use a lot of foam!
I wake up and shave my dome
At the break of dawn,
Yes, I'm shaving my dome,
With my bath towel on...."
I was about to start in on a second verse when I realized that, since it was the fourth of July, everybody was off of work, and waiting to applaud as soon as I stepped out.
That night, some friends and I chased each other around with sparklers and traded protest songs. It was cool, but a couple people kept trying to get me to drink.
"Dude, you'll be 21 in, like, four days. We're not going to turn you in or something. It's four days!"
I was dumbstruck - they actually thought that the reason I don't drink is because it wouldn't be legal. I had to explain, like, since when do I care about the law? Fuck the law. I'm not going to be one of those posers who blunts their edges the day the law says that they can.
Oh, yeah - I turn 21 on Sunday.
"I learned all about Liberty.
It's a statue near a harbor in a city called New York.
And I learned that statues are things that we build
To remind us of things that have died."
