OK, I'm going to be up front with this. My exboyfriend absolutely broke my heart. I loved him more than anything in the world and out of nowhere, he blindsided me and called things off. I was absolutely devastated. He was the love of my life.
You have to understand something about me... and radio people in general, for that matter. We're creative. You can't do what we do without being creative. In a few unsuccessful attempts at a reconciliation, my creativity took over. I left him a can of nuts in his mailbox along with a letter explaining that he would be "nuts" to not give the relationship another try. I pointed out that nuts are good for his heart and that we were good for each other's heart. Yeah, that didn't really work. Neither did the shot glass I mailed him with the attached note that asked for him to give our relationship another "shot."
While I thought I was being cute and charming, he saw it as- quote- "crazy." I still maintain that I was being cute and charming. Likewise, he still thinks I'm crazy... to which I respond by saying that he obviously doesn't know what "crazy" is.
I had a friend whose boyfriend broke up with her and she slashed his tires. THAT'S crazy. Giving somebody a can of nuts? NOT crazy. I know somebody who received a box of turds in the mail from their ex. SOMEBODY SENT A BOX OF TURDS TO THEIR EX. I sent a shot glass. Again, not crazy.
Which brings me around to this song. I LOVE this song. While watching the video, I couldn't help but think of my exboyfriend and his lack of understanding "crazy." I have never aimed headlights at a bedroom window, thrown beer cans at shadows, or shown up at his house at 3am. I have never rolled his yard, as they did in the video. And what's with the war paint? I have never applied war paint.
Suddenly, a can of nuts and a shot glass ain't so bad, is it?!
I hope you realize that I am writing this blog while cracking up. I hope you see the humor in the situation that I have come to see. And I hope you love this song and enjoy the video as much as I do!!
