I had to stop by Dick Blick’s Art store to pick up some materials for silk screening this past Saturday. As I walked in, I heard the sweet melodies of Journey playing over the loudspeaker. I strolled over to the silk screening section to investigate photo emulsions.
As I stood, perusing the options, a store dude, Jonathan, approached.
Mike D: hi!
Jonathan: How are you doing today?
Mike D: quite well, you?
Jonathan: Well, being that Journey is playing, I’m doing awesome.
Mike D (in partial awe): YES! I… I totally agree!
Jonathan: Journey makes everything better.
Mike D: Yes! Absolutely!
so then we talk briefly about silk screening and I go about my business. I finally make my choice and move up to the counter. Jonathan and co-worker Kayleigh(sp?) are talking more about Journey.
Mike D: You know, there’s something about Journey. No one does not like Journey.
Mike D: Once I was traveling with a friend who was only partially okay with Journey, and there was a rock block on the radio. So we heard two journey songs in a row. Then, I switched stations to find yet ANOTHER rock block of journey. 4 more Journey tunes! We got 6 songs in a row!
Kayleigh: That’s awesome!
Mike D: It was great!
Kayleigh to Jonathan: there’s a karaoke bar in Prospect that has a Huge selection of songs. And they totally have Journey. We should really go.
Jonathan: Yes we should.
Jonathan then turned to me.
Jonathan: You should come too.
Mike D: I’m totally game! Yes.
Jonathan: Leave your e-mail address, I’ll send you an e-mail.
Once again, Journey has brought people together.
What an awesome band.
