FRRRRRRRRRRRRRimuh! I mean day.
Can you hear radio broadcasts in teeth fillings?
You know, like when one “feels a storm brewin'” in their knee joints or their shoulder pins. Is it the same?
I’m reading All The Light We Cannot See (first of all, I can already tell it’s going to be one of the most special reads of my life. the writing is spectacularly delicious, even if it’s describing Nazi bombings) and in one of the chapters there’s a mention of hearing a radio broadcast in a tooth filling and I was like OHHH YEAH THAT’S A THING. I THINK THAT’S A THING. …is that a thing? Surely that’s not a thing, you guys. I seriously hope that’s a thing. Maybe you have to wear aluminum foil hats like they do in Signs for it to work.
At least maybe you can tell me this: when the weather shifts, or the barometeric pressure drops, can you feel it in your body? Can you tell if “somethin’s a comin'”? And if so, how. I need these specifics.
Please tell me you can hear radio broadcasts in your teeth. Please. Why else are we even here?
Listen, I have question for you. And I’m okay if the answer is no. I’ll be totally okay, okay?
Instead of me doing a deep dive on this on my own, I thought I’d come to you first, to perhaps save me the frustration and the general feelings of let down over and over.
Are there any songs off of Taylor Swift’s new Fearless album that I’ll even kind of like a little bit? And you can give it to me straight. Are there? And by that I mean, they need to feel like bonus tracks on Folklore or Evermore. They need to fit right into those albums like (salted) butter on (grainy) toast. So far I’ve listened to three and have had to skip past. They feel like Miranda Lambert or something. They’re lacking that sultry, dreamy, woodsy maturity that FL and EM ooze. These just feel like cheesy arena country with a bad perm. Bleh. BUT LIKE I SAID, I might not be listening to the right songs! Can you help me?
Also can you hear them in your fillings?
I don’t like rhubarb.
There, I said it.
I do not care for rhubarb.
It’s PRETTY, yes. However, I feel its only purpose is to look farmer hip in Instagram photos.
Plus I feel like the stringiness would get stuck around your tooth filling and how else would you be able to listen to your favorite radio program?
And you’ll dig this, I promise.
Okay, I already have our next round of five books chosen and on the night stand for after ATLWCS. BUT – I’m curious to know your suggestions for LIGHT, FUZZY, FUN, BEACHY, STEAMY, SCANDALOUS SUMMER reads. All caps obviously necessary. I’ve thrown in some already, and I’ll announce books in about a week, but I’d love to start gathering titles for our summer. And I know you’re going to have the goods. Old and new, anything goes so spill it.
Also can you read a kindle in your teeth fillings?
My parents are up! Hashtag thank you vaccines. However, the HIGH today is FORTY NINE with steady rain and I’m trying to hold it together. Tomorrow’s much better, so I think we’ll show them the spring market at Fox and Pearl, and perhaps some Gypsy Jazz at French Market. Obviously.
From this week, in case you missed it!::: Your April mixtape. ALL LIVE MUSIC, so please please please get your ears in that. At least just skip to the last track and listen to Coldplay’s Amsterdam because nothing is better than that swell of guitar paired with the bass line. Nothing. And then some Cilantro Turkey Meatballs with Lime Rice! Insanely simple and absolutely scrumptious.
Wait, could you read this entire blog post FROM YOUR TEETH FILLINGS?
