Did you catch the news this week that KISS and Mötley Crüe are gett’n together for a big double headline summer tour. Seriously. On the very same day, like a nostalgic call from my past, Nissan has announced that they’re bringing back the Datsun name plate. I know crazy huh.
So uh, if I get this right I could be going to to see KISS in a B210. Sheez if I could just find my 80’s girl friend, this could be the greatest night of my recent life. Oh wait, you know what, I married my 80’s girl friend, she happens to by my 1st wife. She’s also my current wife. Well, maybe, just maybe if I ask nicely she’d perm her hair again, heck we’d be all that and then some.
Who doesn’t love a little KISS, both onstage and in the seat of genuine Datsun. I wonder if you can still get the black shades for the back windows? Mrs S, that’s who. Yeah, she’s rejected the idea of a perm flat out and isn’t all that interested in seeing KISS, especially at $85 a ticket. She isn’t even all that open to necking in a car, the ultimate 80’s experience, if memory serves.
Than again, at my age I’m probably not as tolerant to climbing over a stick shift to get my curly haired cutie. As a matter of fact I’m pretty sure that I’d do one of those moves where I pull a muscle in my lower back and spend the next few days doubled over on the floor.
Sort of how I would see this playing out, given my past experiences. Nothings easy you know.
