Singing The Go-Go's "We Got The Beat" In Wawa. Busted.

I'm not making this up. I was in a Wawa in Chaddsford PA yesterday and while I was taking a leak, the Go-Go's song "We Got The Beat" was on. So I was mouthing the song in an intentionally annoying way that I would do to a friend if he were there. As you know, I do this to amuse myself.

And I was thinking that it would be funny if I got caught doing this and it would be a good blog post. See. I'm thinking about you people during the day.

Well the music was so loud in the bathroom that I didn't even notice that in a split second some dude was standing next to me at the other urinal.

I washed my hands with my head down and got the hell out of there.

So on that note, "We've Got The Beat" is actually a pretty good running song. And I need to get my black underweared ass back running. So I dedicate The Friday Send Off Song to a long distance and long time reader Michelle. Check out her blog damn it!



203 Followers strong. But sadly, yesterday there were 204. Hopefully that person died and it wasn't a choice to stop following me.

Hmmm...you think of us while urinating. Thanks?

I'm going to follow you today. That should make up for the follower of yours I killed yesterday. My bad.

The Go-Gos played at my college once. They were great. I've always had a crush on Jane Wiedlin.

Wawa? And I thought In-n-Out was a funny name for a burger joint.

Kristen said...

You thought about us while singing we got the BEAT and holding your lil' (or not so little) man. Thanks :)

I don't know why, but the fact that the show is the Old Grey Whistle Post makes me very happy.

Saw the Go-Gos years ago at a Race Track Concert in Pa., along with the Coasters, the Specials, and the Police.
Michelle is inspirational. I tried to leave a comment, but I'm not sure if she got it. xo

One of my first cassette tapes back in the 80's...I thought I was being uber cool by taking a tape recorder to school and playing it during lunch...god I was such a dweeb!!

*dweeb for having dweeby tape recorder and not cool boombox like everyone else.

What an odd, yet strangely attractive, man you are.

The last sentence made me choke on my tea

Philly said...

You wawa has public bathrooms? Must be some fancy smancy wawa. I always enjoy the music I hear in wawa. Is there a wawa cd?

Scope said...

Little too up tempo for me if I was going over a 5K.

When settling in for, like a good 7 mile run, nothing beats "My Sherona."

Radar Love, I Can't Drive 55, you can't help but speed!

Phat Mama said...

"Hopefully that person died and it wasn't a choice to stop following me." - It's this soft side to you that I find so sexy.

Cowguy said...

Running is against my purpose in life... but back in the day I would have ate dirt to be Belinda Carlisle's man bitch.

Totally.

Dr Zibbs said...

Phat Mama - thanks. I do have my tender moments.

Dr Zibbs said...

And Philly, out here in the suburbs where homeless people are sent packing, we have Super Wawas that are equipted with b-rooms.

I've been caught muttering nonsense before in a similar urinal setting. There's something about taking a leak that gets the creative juices flowing.

Andy said...

I always like watching people sing to themselves in the car, and guessing what they are singing. It's even better when they realize I've caught them.

I'm creepy.

Dr Zibbs said...

Andy - I love the rare occasion when you see someone singing in their car and they're singing to the song you're listening to. I've only seen is twice.

Cameron said...

I like to see those fools sing AND dance in their car, the suspension giving as they throw their lard from side to side.

Dr Zibbs said...

Cameron - "throw their lard".

That's a great line. I'll put that in my bag of tricks and keep it there as ammo next time I'm having a verbal argument with a fatty.

"Fatso" is getting kind of old.

Fancy Schmancy said...

We got the beat is awesome! Also, I don't run unless I'm being chased. Do with that what you will.
