J and I aren’t as cute as Erin and Ted (few people are), and will probably never sing a song for you on camera (unless we’re incredibly inebriated, yet still somehow able to operate the camera and post effectively). But, like Erin and Ted, we have a habit of making up new lyrics to old songs.
Our recent composition came to fruition a few days ago, while we were sitting on the couch with our laptops being nerdy.
To the tune of “You Sexy Thing.”
J: I believe in manticores. Where you from? You sexy thing.
Me: I believe in manticores. But it’s kind of hard, since they don’t exist.
J: (Laughing) I especially like the part where you say you believe in them, but then you admit they don’t exist.
Me: It’s the same way I feel about Bigfoot.
We go back to work for awhile.
Me: What’s a manticore?
J: I have no idea.
And now, WE CAN’T STOP SINGING IT. Help!
