And I'm not afraid to say it!
See, we have an unspoken rule around these parts. Both parties have to agree on a song to download it. Ok, not really (because I seriously doubt Colin would ever agree to anything on the Falling Slowly soundtrack or the entire Obadiah Parker album and I would never agree to anything Sara Evans...and yet here we are) . But we don't just download with reckless abandon either. If we did that, we would forget we had certain songs and download them more than once. Which I may or may not have done.
I mean, we have some freedom. You don't get an iTunes library with over four days worth of content by sitting on your laurels, folks.
But then there is the whole giftcard issue. In the past three years, there has rarely been a time when Colin did not have an iTunes giftcard in his possession. Whether through birthday or Christmas, or whatever, he always seems to have one. And the rule is...if it's your giftcard, you get to download whatever the heck you want, throw caution to the wind and disregard the other's musical taste. Which is fine. If you're Colin. How many iTunes giftcards have I received? None. Zero. Zilch. Nada. I KNOW! Sniff. Tear. Wipe it away. And Colin just leaves out his giftcard, taunting me. Whenever I get giftcards it always to a clothing or makeup store. Which, don't get me wrong, I love. But sometimes a girl wants to download a Patty Loveless song from 1994 without having to answer for it! I don't want a huge giftcard, just a small one. Just one for my little hands to look at and love on a little bit before I run off and spend it all on Rump Shaker, some Jack Johnson, and maybe a little Coldplay thrown in (eclectic, yes?).
So there you go. There's two confessions for you. I have never been given an iTunes giftcard and I want to download Rump Shaker. Go ahead. Search for it in the iTunes store. You'll want to download it too.
