Friday Flashback...

Let me take you back 20 years...

For those of you who may be younger than me...and 20 years takes you back to a embryonic, or fetal , or even a seminal stage in your life...I just have one thing to say...FUCK YOU...move on. This post is not for you! Leave us age-ed folks alone and let us reminisce about our youth. Let us remember days when we didn't need things like Weight Watchers, eye-glasses, coffee, moisturizer, hours in the day, peace and quiet, and anti-depressants. You'll get there one day, yourself...and when you do, I'll laugh my ass off. I may be in a nursing home drinking my dinner through a tube, with orderlies wiping my ass...but, by God...I will be laughing!!!

Back to my post...

When I was...about...well, let's just say younger. I was on the tennis team and took lessons in the evenings in a small neighboring town along the interstate. One night, after our lesson, my friends parents took us to McDonald's for dinner. We noticed a huge bus outside, but didn't think much of it. When we got inside, we were the only ones there and approached the counter to place our McOrder. When, lo and behold...guess who walked in and got in line behind us? Milli FUH-KIN Vanilli!!! I know, I know...they were fakes...but, this was BEFORE they were outed as fakes. So, it was exciting. We're whispering and giggling and pointing...just like school girls...daring each other to ask if it's really them. We did...and they were! Their manager offered an autograph, so my friends mom dug through her purse and offered up a bank deposit slip for each of us and a pen.

I remember when Milli...well, maybe it was Vanilli...hell I don't know...I remember when one of them handed the autograph back to me...we shared a moment. Our eyes met, and I knew this was what he was thinking....


But, as fate would have it...my Quarter-pounder with cheese, no lettuce, tomato or onion, with extra pickles...was ready and I had to move on. I'm not gonna lie...the pain in his eyes was heartbreaking. As I walked past the statue of the guy with the flaming red hair and pimpin' yellow jumpsuit, I turned back and looked over my shoulder....this was what I heard him say....


So, there you have it...a brief encounter love affair I had with one of the two most raddest, dread headed, fake-crooners out there!

What a cool experience you had. I can't believe they stopped at McDonald's though. That is funny in itself.

Well, I for one am not surprised that they had to stop at McDonalds, the fries are the shiznit!
Very funny post, brings back memories of time when it was ok for men to wear shoulder pads.

Which one is the cute one? Milli or Vanilli?

Remember Color Me Badd? And that time they were on 90210 and David, Donna, Kelly and Brenda snuck into the hotel to meet them and Donna caught her mom cheating on her dad?

Ahhh, I loved Milli Vanilli.... I would sing & jam to some of that back in the day... I am pretty sure I cried real tears, when I found out they were big fat fakers.
