This song came on the other day while I was exercising and I just started shadow boxing.
It was something I did everyday in my room for a long time.
I was convinced one of the boys would proclaim me “Faggot” to my face. I was the one they called pussy all the time but they never touched me so fuck those lil’ bitches.
(I used the corner of my wall to bounce off so I could put my hands out on both sides.)
One day I bounced off my bed to kick and ended up stuck in the wall.
So what happened was I did the kick but I had no thoughts about landing.
I had gotten out of control and ended up in the Built-in shelf at the top of my back wall up by the ceiling. (where people used to put suitcases and hat boxes and shit? Just a big empty-looking rectangle up by the ceiling?)
I lost my adrenaline and I was left hanging with my front half in the wall on the incredibly deep shelf. My ass and legs are hanging down.
I had no room to wiggle free and land on my bed.
I started weep-screaming and
He comes in…
“What the fu-?”
He went quiet. “-How did you get up there?”
“I was playing.”
His look said he knew exactly what I was doing.
“You’re going to have to jump down.”
“I can’t”-Dangling feet.
He said, “Use your arms, throw yourself back.”
I wailed that I couldn’t.
Eventually, I Got mad and did it, making all kinds of “delicate” noises on my way down. I can still hear the sound that came out on me when I hit the bed.
He has never laughed so hard. Because they are both me. The Panicked Queen and Kung Fu Panda.
Depends on the moment.
That was a teachable moment.
It was certainly useful information- I didn’t know you could do that. He could’ve just helped but he built me a boat, or whatever.
What was I saying?
This song is freaking IT.
