Life Revisited - Music Part 2
These are the thoughts that go through your head as the room starts to spin on your first of many trips to come to the best place on the planet...the music store! There is a lot of money that needs to be spent here. But first, the mission is clear. It became clear in the second ten seconds upon entering the store. The first album of what is going to be an addiction...I mean a collection. I knew what album I came for. But on the way over to where my first album's location was in the store, there on display like prostitutes in the windows in the red light district in Amsterdam, were soooo many other albums I had to have! I, of course, did not know of the red light district at that time but I'm writing this now so the analogy stays. The room starts spinning again. I pick up the other albums, look at the cover, turn it over, read down the song list. I've got to have this one...and this one. Doubt enters into your mind as to your initial album selection. Followed by "maybe I can get two albums." Addition in head. That banner would look great on my wall. STOP!! I gotta get out of here. Just get what you came for. Go home and strategize how you can acquire everything in this store...legally. As I bought my album up to the counter the owner smiled at me, told me how great the album was AND asked me my name. He pegged me. He knew I'd be back. As I left, he said "Thanks, Mark. Come again." First name basis, first time in. Pegged.
