...pretend as you will, Neyrs, but the real nightmare is, it happened...yep...I was flunking out of college, the first time around, grovin' to the indescribable (and better left so) sounds of KC and the Sunshine Band...doing a new dance called the "Popcorn" (Mommy, make it stop!)...TJ was yet to be, and Shat was just finishing up TAS...I owned a pair of Platform Tennis Shoes (google for the image, I dare not post here...all who see will assuredly go blind) and could sing the music and recite every line from Car Wash...every white boy in my area wanted to be reborn as a tough-talkin' Black Man (no Racial Thread nonesense meant, just fact)...I think the BeeGees and Saturday Night Dengue Fever can just get threads of their own...screaming now, they are pullihm ,e awau frm th kleaboerd...ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.........
