Chocolate Country Disgrace
So sometimes I get songs stuck in my head and the only way to live out the horrible pain is to listen to it over and over and over.
Today’s song is brought to you by the letter S. Smile by Uncle Kracker.
Why does it seem all the cheesy, terrible songs get stuck in my head? I’ve been listening to it all morning and I literally cannot. stop. They played it during hot yoga on Saturday and it has just now surfaced to my consciousness to haunt me.
I typically don’t like country songs, but there’s something about this song that is so melonchaly and sweet. Previous songs that I’ve listened to repeatedly include The Republic Tigers’ Made Concrete, Paper Route’s Are We All Forgotten, Jack Johnson’s No Other Way and Griffin House’s Better Than Love. I suppose there are worse songs to get stuck in your head.
Besides listening to
my future wedding song smile all morning, I’ve been prepping for truffle day. I usually suck at eating candy, or so I’ve been told, because it takes me seriously 6 months to go through a box of chocolates. I find I tend to crave salty snacks over chocolate or candy. I know, I know. I’m a disgrace to my gender.
In typical me fashion, I’ve had these truffles since either Christmas or my birthday, I can’t remember. The point is that it’s been awhile. Good thing chocolate doesn’t spoil easily. Lindts is my favorite brand, obviously. It’s real and not full of corn syrup like some other brands.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go curl up with some truffles, a good country song and my monogrammed blanket like a good little South Carolinian.
Ha! Just kidding. I’m going to be watching this video and wishing I was in New Jersey with jughandles.
