Nobody Puts Thunder in a Corner

Posted By Tempest


Suppose you and Thunder were getting your house ready on a Pleasant Valley Sunday* to put on the market,

and you were painting the upstairs bedrooms,

and you started your IPod on shuffle,

and the first song that played was “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life” by Jennifer Warnes and Bill Medley,

and Thunder decided to sing the song at the top of his lungs even though you reminded him that all the windows were open,

and near the end of the song, Thunder yells “CATCH ME,”

and you whip around to see Thunder, arms akimbo and on tip-toes,

and Thunder fake lunges at you a-la a bearded and rotund Jennifer Grey to your squatty, considerably less-muscled Patrick Swayze,

and you don’t realize it’s a FAKE lunge,

and you let out a blood-curdling scream, drop the loaded paintbrush on the only nice wooden floor in the entire house and run screaming from the room,

why is it YOUR fault that he has to spend the next 15 minutes cleaning up paint splatter all around the room?


* We live right off of Pleasant Valley Way¬† – near the place where Carole King lived and wrote about in “Pleasant Valley Sunday,” a song made famous by The Monkees.
