Too Much Macho?


Have you ever had one of those days where everything was just perfect?

I did, last Saturday.

It was one of those days where everything was in sync. From the weather being perfect, not hot or humid, to everything I did that day going smoothly and easily. There was a calm and relaxed energy in the air, and not only for me, but for everyone else in the city as well. You could feel it.

These are the kinds of days that would great if we could just store them in a bottle and then pop open the cork on days when they seem to SUCK, wouldn’t it?

I relished Saturday.

I sat in the park and communed with nature for about an hour and half, while getting some sun and not SWEATING to death. Later, I made myself a delicious lunch and then took a nice long walk throughout the city; snapping photographs. Afterwards, I went to Starbucks and had a fresh cup of dark roast coffee, while sitting in a window seat; watching urban life on the street. About 6:00 PM, I ate some dinner and then walked over to F.Y.E. I purchased one of my all-favorite comedy films (on sale, btw), My Big Fat Greek Wedding. I then went home and poured myself a nice glass of red wine, laid on the floor and watched my movie.

Yes, it was a perfect day. Actually, it was a perfect weekend!

However…..

*insert suspense music*

Earlier in the week something utterly strange happened.

Monday, I went over to You Tube to watch some music videos and found, Macho Man, by the Village People. I spent part of my early twenties in NYC during the 1970 -80's, and the Village People were very popular in Greenwich Village back then. Therefore, hearing this song again brought back a TON of great memories for me.

Suddenly, I got a brilliant idea!

I thought, I wonder what would happen if someone listened to this song five times a day for five days in a row?

Would they suddenly become exceedingly MACHO?

And would their body suddenly transform into something more virile, just by repeatedly hearing the words… “Macho, macho man…I want to be a macho man?”

So I put it to a test.

And here’s what happened….

Update: Keep your fingers crossed that my body DEFLATES soon because I can't fit into any of my clothes.

  2. I'll finish commenting when I stop laughing ............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................ Okay, I've calmed down now. Yes, Macho Man, that was some transformation; you definitely should have stopped at Day Two. The last one was kinda sick-making....lol. All that right on top of reading about your relaxing day was a shock to the system. Mine! Bet you had fun doing it though.

    Happy Monday.

  9. Hey there Barb~

    Silly Billy indeed! Aren't I INSANE???

    It took me about three days to put this video together, but it was so much fun. The hard part was finding photos that got progressively bigger in size. Editing it was a challenge too, but I've learned so much using Windows Movie Maker!

    Thanks so much for stopping by, dear friend! Happy Monday to you! Have a great week!

    X to you and D!

    Have a wonderful week, Ron. Thanks for the Monday morning laughs.

    Ye. gods, Ron, who needs steroids when they've got the Village People! I think athletes all over the world will be ditching the roids in favor of your video! Of course, that last day may have been just a little excessive. Oh, well, keep flexing, buddy and have a great week!

  24. Well.......I LOVE those times when everything just feels RIGHT and it's all good! Of course, you realize in my case 90% of it's my attitude. That other 10%--stupid people doing stupid things? LOL Ah well--I think it's awesome you had a sweat free, stress free, photo filled, ON THE FLOOR with the wine movie IN, day! Well done, you!

    Is this where I confess--never seen the movie....... *blushing* But I DID watch the trailer you have here--and maybe renting it would be okay! (without the wine....LOL)

    As for the transformation--ummmm.....ewwww.

    But I gotta tell ya........I'm now filled with fear!
    The damn song is stuck in my head thanks to you--and I know what happens when I get stucksongitus!

    Five days, five times a day could happen!

    I don't EVEN wanna know what results I could reap from that.
    I will, however, blame YOU.........

    You know, you're absolutely right...it's all in the attitude. And for some reason, that day (weekend) everyone (including myself) had a great attitude. There was this really great energy in the air!

    "Is this where I confess--never seen the movie....... *blushing* But I DID watch the trailer you have here--and maybe renting it would be okay! (without the wine....LOL)"

    Mel, it's SUCH a cute movie and the trailer doesn't even do it half justice. It's both funny AND touching. It has the most AWESOME cast too! Save it for a night when you and himself feel like sitting back and just laughing.

    "The damn song is stuck in my head thanks to you--and I know what happens when I get stucksongitus!

    "Shit...what the hell happened?!" Heh....man, that's awesome! Heh. You're too much.

    Oddly enough, I was listening to the radio last week while driving home, and the host was talking about the time he interviewed The Village People. He said that he was approached by their manager who pulled him aside and said, "Don't talk to the indian."

    "What do you mean?" the host asked.

    "He's too high. Too high. Just...don't talk to him," the manager replied.

    Heh....

    "Not that I don't think you're a macho guy already, but I just have to say - having a bit of fun with Photoshop, are we? ;)"

    HA! Gee...do you think?

    Actually, it's not Photoshop, it's this free online website (Face In Hole) that allows you to play around with your photos; superimposing them onto other peoples bodies. It's so much FUN!

    "Mine was, too. Communing with nature in the morning, watching a great live concert in the evening, and getting blitzed in between. Ahh...life doesn't get much better than that!"

    It sure doesn't! Isn't it great to have a weekend like that?

    I'm glad you "deflated" because that last picture was just a bit much. I don't know why any man would want to be that "macho"!

    I'm really glad you had a great energy weekend. I hope I get one of those soon. I've been "thinking" good energy thoughts and I do believe the energy is surrounding me but I'm so exhausted that I'm not sure my body is up to letting it in! I may need to meditate or something.
