I Kissed a Girl and I Liked It… the taste of her cherry chapstick…
WHY oh WHY do I have to like this song? And why does it get stuck in my head for hours and hours on end? The lyrics… oh so silly. It’s SOOOOOO corny and something I totally do not relate to (no offense to my girlfriends, lol). Yet when it comes on I turn up the radio and sing along. It’s kind of embarrassing.
Then it hit me. I can’t NOT like this song. It’s going to forever be associated with an awesome memory. In all it’s corniness and stupidity, I will always associate this song with fun times.
When we were in California we rented a limo at the suggestion of our hotel receptionist to transport us to Medieval Times. (Amazingly it was the cheapest way to get nine people 30 miles away from our hotel in SoCal.) For most of our kids it was the first time in a limousine. It was a very fancy limo with lights all over the inside, free drinks, DVD player, and an awesome stereo. As I was messing with the stereo this song came on and the kids made me stop and turn it up. So I obliged and all of them (the older ones at least) sang this whole song in unity while dancing in their seats, etc. They had such a blast being all cool in the limo, singing this song.
So, that’s my confession. I like this song. Please don’t hate me.
