This past weekend was pretty mellow/low key for me.....which I love. I was pretty much a homebody all weekend, with a few exceptions. Here's some of the highlights of what went down in my world over the weekend:
On Saturday, my folks came by & treated me to dinner. My parents had me laughing so hard that my tummy was sore for awhile after they left. They're comedians, but they don't know it.....oblivious to their own joke....and they fart.....a lot....and then they yell at each other in Spanglish when the other one farts......you better believe that my house was all aglow in Glade scented candles, as soon as they hit pavement.
Sunday afternoon, as I was scrubbing my Jacuzzi Whirlpool 8-jet bathtub, appointed with 24kt fittings leaky bathtub, I heard a strange sound coming in through my bathroom window. It was a sound I've heard before, coming from my neighbor's apartment. Someone was playing what sounded like a didgeridoo. One, long, single low note was being played constantly. Then a bell began to ring.....next, someone started to chant....and then there were others chanting. I couldn't recognize the language, but there was something very hypnotic & musical about it. I estimated that there were at least 10 people (maybe more)....I shit you not, they chanted for at least 25 minutes, non-stop. I know this to be true because that's about as long as I listened...standing in my bathroom, wearing nothing more than a well worn loincloth pair of ratty old PJs.
It got kinda funky sounding at one point (for real), and the chanting sounded a bit like that song "Tootsie Roll", from the early 90s....so there I was, 'chanting ' along with them: "Cotton Candy, Sweet and Low, let me see your Tootsie Roll"...
I called a friend and asked him to listen to the chant, to see if he could recognize the language, but it wasn't loud enough for him to hear through the phone....then he sorta freaked me out by saying that they could be satanists....it was at that point that I shut my bathroom window and decided to mind my own damn business.
