You want to say something? I have a song for it!

It's that time again where I tell you, BLOG friends, of another annoying or endearing habit of mine. A few weeks ago I introduced to you that I stare. And I loved that you guys were honest with me in your comments. Some of you said how much you hated that...and others admitted to the habit. I loved it.

Well if you don't already know...I grew up in the "dance" world. My mother had her own studio and I started taking at the ripe ol' age of 3...but I started watching long before that. With dancing comes music...and it has also been an extremely HUGE part of my life. Which means I know a lot of songs. Maybe not all the right lyrics and maybe not the WHOLE songs...but I know a lot of choruses of songs and they stick in my head to be used later.

One of those other annoying (maybe endearing) habits that I have picked up is: when I am talking with someone...if their words, or mine, trigger a memory of a song I start singing the song right out! Or if a song stays in my head...I'll find myself singing, in the grocery store, at the library, during class in college and high was crazy, and sometimes very embarrassing!

Remember when Ace of Base came out with "The Sign"...

there were many moments where I found people laughing at me because I would be singing, "I saw the sign, and I opened up my eyes I saw the sign...". No one that hung out with me for even a few minutes could get away with saying "sign" out of any context and me not break out into chorus!

IN high school...someone said "Friends" or "I'll tell you what I want"...forget it, I would break out in this song: "Wannabe" by Spice Girls

In the present day and co-workers suffer daily with my weird and annoying habit. When the song "I kissed a Girl" by Katy Perry, came out I continued for well over a week singing that song every morning because I couldn't get it out of my head.

It was in my "WORKOUT" play list and I would listen to it during my Cardio workout because it has great "timing" to run to...and then I would dress and go to work.

The co-worker that sits in the cubbie right next to me would yell at me and tell me to stop singing (which I didn't know I was doing it out loud) I would then get it into her head...after a week or so, I just would quietly sing it and then listen for her from behind my cubbie to all of a sudden very silently start singing it and then grunt with frustration and yell, "Shelle, I swear I am going to kill you"... I would always just laugh and say, "or kiss me with your Cherry Chapstick!"

Just the other day I was talking with my other co-worker and he stupidly said, "I need to do more sit-ups" or something like that. I broke out into, "My anaconda don't want none unless you got buns can do side bends or sit ups...but please don't lose that butt..." I'll spare you from quoting the rest because I know that whole song...but you catch my drift.

So there you go...I have laid myself open to all your condemnation to judge as you please.

Again I there anything you need to tell me?

Let me just leave you with another song that I had in my head for quite a while when I was in college...and yes I knew every word and when it said H-E-double tooth picks I would say, "heck". Anytime someone said "super" or "star" or "superstar" they were in for it! :)
