I used to think that I wanted to compile a soundtrack that represented my life--you know, told the tale. I may not have realized exactly how ridiculous that sounded until I just reread that sentence. Well, let's try to move along anyway...

NOW, what I would like is a soundtrack that interacts with my daily life (yes, I know, that sounds much more realistic!). I would like there to be light jaunty tunes to let me know when things are moving along fine (sometimes I'm not sure). Perhaps there could be that horror movie music to warn me of danger...dun, dun, dunnnnnnnnnnn...PTO president one aisle over...Strep throat--call the pediatrician...Go back in the house--you forgot SOMETHING! How about some general slapstick music for when I minorly injure myself? I am sure a stubbed toe wouldn't hurt as bad. If something were to happen that was difficult for me to gauge a reaction to, I could just listen for whether there was an upbeat tempo (I'm Walkin' on Sunshine), or a tune far more sinister. Sure I'd still have my brooding days, but only if the music was right! The basic song list could be the same everyday with just minor adjustments for events out of the ordinary. In other words, my lunch/dinner making music could be the same daily, as could my getting showered/dressed music.

I am putting a bit too much thought into the logistics of my soundtrack, as I am sure there are no specifications or modifications that would make this dream a reality. I do realize that I could wear my ipod 24/7, but I wanted the voices (singing voices that is) in my head to be proactive...and omniscient perhaps!

So instead, I will settle for a personal cheerleader. Not just some random pom-pom waving smiler. There needs to be knowledge of the game. Tell me when to be on DE-fense!!! Tell me when to be aggressive...b-e aggressive..b-e a-g-g-r-e-s-s-i-v-e!!!
