This is quite an old songspeak, but I was reminded of Whoomp! (There It Is) by Tag Team last night while Jamie and I and a bunch of other dudes got together for a GNO (Guys’ Night Out). Usually our GNOs consist of getting together and going out to dinner, but we decided to kick it old school and play some Wiffle ball… then go to dinner.
Speaking of wiffleball, I started singing Bono-style… “wiffle without you” to Kristen in the car on our way home from work in anticipation of the GNO wiffle ball game. She gave me a thumbs down on that one.
And speaking of Old School, on a recent trip to Martha’s Vineyard, I was driving in Edgartown and stopped to let a pedestrian across the street. The pedestrian was, in fact, Luke Wilson of Old School, Legally Blonde, and countless Wes Anderson movies fame. Kristen and Heather were in the car with me when I said, “Hey, look who it is.” matter-of-fact-ly. They shrieked with excitement. Luke Wilson is taller than I would have expected.
Anyway, getting back to the Whoomp! (There It Is) portion of this story… basically, my dad– who is quite the jokester– started singing… Whoops, there it is! one time when he visited me. It’s been so long that I can’t remember the circumstances that led to it, but Jamie and I still joke about the misheard lyric to this day.
