I have this
I try to tell a fan
of the band Destiny’s Child
that there can be no
musical merit within a group of
singing ladies so eager to describe
their own bodies as “Bootylicious”.
The young fan retorts, “you’re just jealous
because you’re not Bootylicious!”
And it is true;
I am not.
Say “La Vie” (or whatever it
is you’re supposed to c’est?).
At that point I always wake up
with the realisation that this
young fan is 100% correct; on the
money; spot-on; they got me!
Then I go back to sleep
straight away thinking: but what if I was?
