#SLS for 9/27/20

The prompts are brother/sibling/sister. I picked “Stressed Out” by Twenty-One Pilots. Writer: Joseph R Tyler. Why? Just because. haha. Hope you enjoy!

I wish I found some better sounds no one’s ever heard
I wish I had a better voice that sang some better words
I wish I found some chords in an order that is new
I wish I didn’t have to rhyme every time I sang

I was told when I get older all my fears would shrink
But now I’m insecure and I care what people think

My name’s ‘Blurryface’ and I care what you think
My name’s ‘Blurryface’ and I care what you think

Wish we could turn back time, to the good old days
When our momma sang us to sleep but now we’re stressed out (oh)
Wish we could turn back time (oh), to the good old days (oh)
When our momma sang us to sleep but now we’re stressed out

We’re stressed out

Sometimes a certain smell will take me back to when I was young
How come I’m never able to identify where it’s coming from
I’d make a candle out of it if I ever found it
Try to sell it, never sell out of it, I’d probably only sell one

It’d be to my brother, ’cause we have the same nose
Same clothes homegrown a stone’s throw from a creek we used to roam
But it would remind us of when nothing really mattered
Out of student loans and tree-house homes we all would take the latter

My name’s ‘Blurryface’ and I care what you think
My name’s ‘Blurryface’ and I care what you think

Wish we could turn back time, to the good old days
When our momma sang us to sleep but now we’re stressed out (oh)
Wish we could turn back time (oh), to the good old days (oh)
When our momma sang us to sleep but now we’re stressed out

We used to play pretend, give each other different names
We would build a rocket ship and then we’d fly it far away
Used to dream of outer space but now they’re laughing at our face
Saying, “Wake up, you need to make money.”
Yeah

We used to play pretend, give each other different names
We would build a rocket ship and then we’d fly it far away
Used to dream of outer space but now they’re laughing at our face
Saying, “Wake up, you need to make money.”
Yeah

Wish we could turn back time, to the good old days
When our momma sang us to sleep but now we’re stressed out (oh)
Wish we could turn back time (oh), to the good old days (oh)
When our momma sang us to sleep but now we’re stressed out

Used to play pretend, used to play pretend, bunny
We used to play pretend, wake up, you need the money
Used to play pretend, used to play pretend, bunny
We used to play pretend, wake up, you need the money
We used to play pretend, give each other different names
We would build a rocket ship and then we’d fly it far away
Used to dream of outer space but now they’re laughing at our face
Saying, “Wake up, you need to make money.”
Yeah

Sunday Reflections ~ 9/27/20

Tired and overused but man, where has the time gone? Almost October. Here in San Antone we have an autumnal feel. Maybe we get a fall this year? Maybe I jinxed us?

After losing count of the number of rejections, Lulu finally got a win. She had made an interview video submitting it for consideration about two weeks back. She had not heard anything, assuming in only a matter of time she’d get the dreaded “you suck” email. But they called her Wednesday, asked a few questions, then set up a committee interview for Friday.

After that phone call, she came into my office, said she thought it went well, and that they’d let her know by the middle on next week. Instead, in less than an hour, her phone rang again and she was offered the position. While there are still a few things that need to fall into place to make this real, background check, drug test, you know the drill … thank you sweet baby Jesus! Lulu Belle has her first “real” as opposed to fake job.

Alrighty, now that I have blathered on enough, here is a short sweet roll call for last week:
