Best story from behind the wood | I am really into streaming long playlists at work. There is one that I have been rocking called “I Miss 90’s Hip Hop”. It mixes genuine hardcore rap with some pop hits and over the course of 7 hours there is at least 2 songs an hour that make you feel good. I had a couple discussing the status of their relationship and whether they were each others “primary partners”. As you can guess the conversation became tense. Towards the end of their date they asked for the bill and as I was dropping it “Let’s Talk About Sex” came on the playlist and they both rolled their eyes SO hard. I swear it wasn’t planned.
