I recorded a video on my phone today to post tonight. The video didn’t save like it was supposed to (meaning it didn’t save at all) so now I have nothing to show for it. I’m not too bummed by it, though. It was more of an introduction of a possible new video series (even though I haven’t done any more installments of previous videos).
But I get an A for effort, right? I did try to record something. And I feel confident in my use of the word “try” because I did do it even though I failed. Plus it wasn’t my fault, I don’t think. (I don’t like using the word try because it suggests the possibility of failure, and one might not try as hard as they could if they believed they would ultimately succeed.) Call it a mind game, if you will.
I’m going to blame it on the boogie, which would be the second time I’ve done so today. That’s going to be one of my new things now. When something goes wrong, blame it on the boogie. Why? Because I can’t be mad at something that might make me dance or is the result of dancing. (Am I not interpreting that song correctly?)
My other new thing is calling someone that annoys me a “rube” which is defined as a country bumpkin. Both are fun to say, but in terms of brevity, I’ll tell the next rube that fails to blame it on the boogie.

But I have started vocalizing the sad trombone. And there’s also this gem that I hope will get stuck in your head:
