The Toe Truck and Singing MaMa.....by Diane Ogden
I am not sure why there is a row of port o poddies sitting in the background of the cutsie Toe Trucks but there they are. Maybe the Toe Trucks haul around butt shelters?? From one end to the other I would say... I don't think so but then I didn't do my research. I happened to get home in time to see Howie Mandel drive up to America's Got Talent in one of those Toe Trucks. And I knew that was something right up my alley. That would be the alley in back of my house. Kidding, I don't live in a house by an alley.
Maybe I will invent the Nail Truck.... or copy the Toe Truck and go around doing house call "Nail jobs"... look out now its going to get deep in here if I don't stop.... The other truck I saw in my "head" would not be legal or proper. I cannot help where my head goes sometimes. My mind thinks by association, therefore I sing by association. For instance when I see my clients dog named Benny....I start singing "Benny and the Jets" for hours and hours until I get over it or find another association. I work with a girl named Maria which means I hate the song Maria from West Side Story! I have sung it to death. An ambulance passes me and don't ya know I start singing "Teen Angel, Can You Hear Me, Teen Angel Can You See-ee Me.... Then if I see a hot guy who might be (is) much younger than myself, it reminds me of an old love and I start singing all those ballads Taylor Swift sings right on into the night. Sometimes I wake up at three a.m. and darned if the song doesn't try to get me again. Once I watched the movie Walk the Line and I sang that song for a week. If any of them come on the radio I quickly change stations. I have no control over the noise in my head. That is why I know I was Steven Tyler's twin sister in a past life. I rhyme things too. But I don't do drugs. I was not Howie Mandel's anything in a past life. Back to my point! And the price of gas is not conducive to making house calls for any reason. I did hear some doctors were starting to do that again....
Soo, lets hope I don't end up driving a Toe Truck around town singing Maria and Teen Angel and Walk the Line dressed like Steven Tyler. Humm, might just be a very happy good time!
