An awkward story of me telling my wife about me falling in love (not with her)
“Play the best songs by AC/DC”. That was me this morning as I started my 1.5 hour drive from my dentist. (If you think that’s long, consider it’s a 5 hour flight from my house.) Up until last night, I never thought I’d say those words conjuring up an AC/DC playlist.
If I’m being all the way real, the only AC/DC I knew involved alternating and direct currents. (Yay for science!)
Anyway, here’s how it happened, which was so fast you might even day I was … Thunderstruck.
I was sitting next to one of my favorite clients and somehow the conversation turned to music.
“You won’t believe the music I listen to,” she says.
So of course, I start guessing. “Drake. Kanye. Taylor Swift. Eminem.”
Not even close. She hesitated to spill the tea but eventually she let out a quiet, “I listen to Metallica.”
She was right about me not really believing it.
From there it turned to Kiss. (Apparently, they haven’t worn face-paint for ten years.)
Then Pink Floyd.
And before I knew it I had a list of songs to listen to so I could see if there was a rocker hiding inside of me.
It just so happens that, I was carpooling with some co workers after dinner and that’s when it really set in.
A song came on that sounded familiar.
Me: “Who’s that?”
Me: “I know that one. That’s pretty good.”
I guess that got stuck in my brain because that’s how I ended up playing AC/DC this morning. And every song that came on was great.
When I told my wife about my new found love of AC/DC, you could say her response with my new “finding” was lukewarm at best. She said she (and a whole lot of other people) already knew about this gem. I never heard her listen to it though and we’ve been together since ’99 so I don’t know.
And then I find out the band was formed in 1973!
I guess you could say I’m the Christopher Columbus of rock music.
