Last night at the Alleycat

Cute waitress: Oh, do you like the music?
Me: I like it just fine. What about you?
Cute waitress: It's the 60's. Usually I don't like it but tonight I do.
Me: What do you like?
Cute waitress: I really love 80's music. But they don't let me play it.
Me: What about 80's music do you like?
Cute waitress: Well, I especially like 80's punk rock bands.
Me: Oh, really?
Cute waitress: Yeah, you know, bands like Led Zeppelin and Def Leppard.
Me: Def Leppard were pretty great.
Cute waitress: I love their album Hysteria. "Pour Some Sugar on Me" is my favorite.
Me: Oh, absolutely. No doubt.
Cute waitress: Of course, "Rock You Like a Hurricane" was good too.
Me: Yeah, that was a good song.

My favorite 80's "punk rock" band has got to be White Snake. They were so . . . ground breaking.

I hope the waitress was REALLY cute.

I'll have whatever she's having.

"pour some sugar on me" = my all-time favorite punk anthem performed by a one-armed drummer...

but it's nothing compared to "I'm a cowboy, on the steal horse I ride...I'm wanted...Dead or Alive."

I'm envious of that kind of oblivion.

Glenn Ingersoll said...

The Ramones' "Taking Care of Business" ... now that was a classic.

Wow. But, to have some compassion on the poor waitress, she probably wasn't born until the nineties. It's all "golden oldies" to her.

And soooo...did you get her digits??!
You could introduce her to some "Round and Round" by The Damned....uggh, maybe it's just that her iPod's database got corrupted. That's hilarious and sad and hilarious. I'm praying to Odin I win the ticket lottery for Zeppelin's reunion show in Nov. Don't know how I would get to London but I will find a way.
