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!
*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….
