Bowling for soup and a trip to the vet.

Luckily, I don't need to wear this blue donut necklace anymore and my bottom feels better.

As you may be aware, Philomena our min pin is recovering from anal gland issues.  Over the course of the past few weeks, we have spent lots of time at the vet and getting to know the “nice ladies” at the front desk.

The radio was on in the waiting room and it was on the oldies station.  You know, the hits from the 1980’s and 1990’s. What?  The music we grew up with is classic rock and considered oldies?  CRUD!  We didn’t get the memo…wait…email about that.   Somehow, we got to talking about music when one of the receptionists, Rosie, who was around our age, said, “My niece is 15 and she doesn’t know what good music is!”  The conversation about good music ensued.

We had to call the vet yesterday to schedule a follow up appointment for Phil and Rosie answered the phone.  She reminded us that Chachala is due for her senior wellness exam.  WHAT?  When did she get to be a senior?  Rosie said, “Chachala is 7 years old.  They grow up so fast don’t they?”

Then, this song comes on Pandora…

Bowling for Soup’s song,  “Preoccupied with 1985″…



Debbie just hit the wall
She never had it all
One Prozac a day
Husband’s a CPA
Her dreams went out the door
When she turned twenty four
Only been with one man
What happened to her plan?

She was gonna be an actress
She was gonna be a star
She was gonna shake her ass
On the hood of Whitesnake’s car
Her yellow SUV is now the enemy
Looks at her average life
And nothing has been alright since


Bruce Springsteen, Madonna
Way before Nirvana
There was U2 and Blondie
And music still on MTV
Her two kids in high school
They tell her that she’s uncool
Cause she’s still preoccupied
With 19, 19, 1985


She’s seen all the classics
She knows every line
Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink
Even Saint Elmo’s Fire
She rocked out to Wham
Not a big Limp Bizkit fan
Thought she’d get a hand
On a member of Duran Duran

Where’s the mini-skirt made of snake skin
And who’s the other guy that’s singing in Van Halen
When did reality become T.V.
Whatever happened to sitcoms, game shows
(on the radio was)


She hates time make it stop
When did Motley Crue become classic rock?
And when did Ozzy become an actor?
Please make this stop
And bring back


Someone at the controls has a sense of humor.

Now, if you have chuckled at any of the above, you are probably feeling our pain.

    I’m so glad that Philomena is feeling better. I do feel your pain about good music. I do like the 1985 song, and the other guy singing in Van Halen is Sammy Hager. I never missed one of his concerts until he joined Van Halen, I never liked the two of them together.
    I miss the big hair and fun of the 80’s.
