The thing that I love today is an old CD that I happen to stumble across over the weekend. It’s Janet Jacksons “Janet”. I believe it came out in 1993. I was in middle school then. I have always been a Janet Jackson fan. I remember watching her earliest videos on MTV with my Mom. So, I stumbled across this, among others that I’m too embarrassed to list, and I couldn’t have been happier. I popped it right into the CD player and got my groove on while I finished my cleaning. The music alone is great. But, I think that it makes me happy because it brings me back to when things were easy. No job, no bills, no problems at all. As soon as I saw the cover, I instantly thought of the time in homeroom that Mandy started doing the dance from the IF video. Mandy was a fantastic dancer and I was jealous because she had the dance down to a T.
But, I listened to it after I dropped my son off at daycare, I don’t dare listen to it in front of him. By the time I was down the road, I was well on my way to being pumped up to go to work on such a rainy day. That’s why I love this CD.
