100 Word Song: "The Friend Zone"
Mi amigo Leeroy, and his human pal Lance renew the 100 Word Song Challenge this week with the mighty Rolling Stones and a track off the first album of theirs I ever owned (vinyl, bitches!). The disc was "Tattoo You" and the song was a mellow track, "Waiting on a Friend". I call this "The Friend Zone".
Her voice was blubbering, with gulps of air between the words. "And he was there, with her, and they stopped kissing, and they looked at me. It was like they thought I was stupid, stupid for not knowing, stupid because I was the only one who didn't know." I couldn't see her, but I knew the way her face got red and hot with emotion, the way her blonde curls shook when she was angry. I always knew he was wrong for her, now she knew too. "I wish the boys I liked were like you," she said.
