Float On

This morning while driving to work I heard Float On by Modest Mouse.  I had forgotten how much I liked this song!  And honestly, until I heard the d.j. say who was singing it I had forgotten the artist as well.

Some tunes are just so cheerful they really make me want to smile.  This is one of those songs.  I was picturing an upcoming event that I'll be participating in... floating on an inner-tube down a river in New Braunfels, Texas.  To be quite frank, I'm not looking forward to tubing.  I don't want to fry in the sun.  So, I'll update you next month after the adventure takes place and let you know how well I fared.   This song temporarily served as my anthem while I visualized myself looking all cool and stylish with water-shoe-covered feet dangling over the side of the innards of a tire. 

I quickly snapped back to reality.  I'm not going to look cool at all.  This pasty white chick will be donning a big sun hat and a zinc covered nose.  I just don't think that warrants any level of coolness.  But a girl can dream, right?
