The other day I had the privilege of seeing three individuals using music to Escape Adulthood.
I saw the first person on the highway during the morning commute. She was driving along in her cute VW Beetle, with her flowers popping up over the dash. Even though I couldn’t hear her, she was obviously enjoying singing her tunes as she drove along. It was cute!
The next person I saw twice in one week at the local grocery store. I think he works for one of the bread companies and he’s there early in the morning stocking the shelves with fresh loaves. Both days I saw him he was sporting his iPod and grooving to the music, as he carefully placed each loaf on the shelf. He even had a little smile on his face, as he mouthed the words.
The third person I saw was also in his car, waiting for his red light to turn. He was drumming on the steering wheel. He wasn’t “just drumming,” he was rockin’. It was fun to see.
Seeing these three people in the same day helped me to recognize how the simple act of listening to music can really help manage Adultitis.
For instance, if you add a little tuneage to some bland routine events, the tasks will get done with a tad bit more fun.
Coldplay can help you clean the toilet.
Harry Connick, Jr. can assist you as you pay your house payment.
Lionel Ritchie will be happy to help with the laundry.
Madonna can help get you through the morning traffic.
Little did you know, your favorite musicians are there to keep your Adultitis at bay.
