I hate the Gangnam Style song. Yes, this makes me a hater. And of the filthiest kind, because I can not deny that when that quirky Korean beat comes on the radio I bust out the moves. Sadly this song always comes on when I’m in the kitchen in the middle of baking cookies. I look like a mess with flour all over my leggings and a dough covered wooden spoon in hand. Is it bad that I know all the dance moves by heart? I’m going to have to say yes, yes it is.
I don’t even know what he’s saying. Does anyone know what this song is actually about?
And then it hit me, similarly to the way my English bull dog ploughs into me while I dance. It’s his way to prevent me from public humiliation. There is a breed of human beings that tend to hate things we don’t understand. I say we because I think I have this problem. The accepted vernacular for this breed I believe is the Control Freak.
You’ve met us. Fact. We’re the people who make up answers to questions that we don’t know, we’re glued to technology or anything that can give us more information, and most importantly of all, we insist on doing things our way. Because let’s face it, we know what we’re doing and everyone else is stupid. Not a clear enough picture for you? Try this. We have an expert opinion AND solution to all the worlds problems, we pretend to entertain your ideas while secretly thinking “what a noob,” and last but not least – we pick the movie. Every time.
Other symptoms include a resounding dislike for Justin Bieber, pink slime and pretty much anyone that doesn’t fall under our spell and do absolutely everything we tell them to do the first time.
I think I’m stupid.
I think Darwinism was tossed out the window generations ago and we have left humanity to procreate idiots like me. People who think that we know all the answers and secretly loathe anything we can’t explain. But can this change? Can a you undo an obsessive personality? Preferably without drugs?
Can I listen to a Psy song without abhorring myself?
What if we understood the lyrics? What then. Would humanity be different?
Let’s find out.
So this is my challenge to everyone like me – for the next week ( I don’t think I could last any longer) I am going to embrace the world’s endless flow of love and let go. What will be will be. I’m already rolling my eyes. But no, I am going to do this because we should project what we want to see in the world.
Wish me luck. Good night, sleep tight, and of course, don’t let those bed bugs bite.
