Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

Ready, Steady, Bob

bobby old over it

You look nonplussed.

“Y’know, I’m gonna be honest with you and say I never quite zeroed in on the meaning of that word.”

I am so glad you said that. Me, either.

“I’ve had it explained to me a number of times.”

Looked it up.

“Sure, sure. Just won’t stick”

Let’s get past it. What’s wrong?

“You know I’ve lived in the same house since 1970, right?”

You don’t like the changes.

“Not these specific changes, I suppose. Just in general. I still got Snake T-Shirt.”

What about Madonna T-shirt?

“Ah, you know: one of the girls had an 80’s party and swiped it. Haven’t seen the thing since.”

Sad. Bob, you’ll get used to it.

“I’m barely used to Mickey being back in the band.”

This time or the previous times you let him back in the band?

“Whichever. Also, you know: play the same guitar for years.”

All guitarists do that.

“Still on my first wife.”

Nicely done.

“And my first kids.”

Doesn’t work that way.

“One band, kinda.”

A lot of people do that.

“Dio didn’t.”

Don’t bring Dio into this.

“Noticed you’ve got a Donate button on the side and down at the bottom now.”

Don’t bring the Donate button into this, either.

    i like the sexy chest hairs juxtaposed with the cheap nylon zipper. speaks volumes.

  3. plussed, ruly, couth, gruntled etc…love those words

  4. Thank God Bobby married and has a family of women to keep him on track, imagine his outfit if left to his own devices.

    Sure the zipper shirt and the jacket are an imperfect combination, and the beard is as it is. Imagine however what bachelor Bobby would put together.
