I just want back in your head
is a line from a song by Tegan & Sara off ‘The Con’ which was released in 2007 during which time I was crazy for a boy who lived in a bad neighbourhood and drove a silly silver car and used to make comic book jokes that always went over my head.
One day after driving around for a while we went to a park and, because it was fashionable at the time, I was wearing this ridiculous ankle-length hippie-style skirt which faded from white to sky blue at the bottom but was totally brown by the end of this story.
Which is that we decided to roll down a giant hill together.
Which, like all bad ideas, seemed like a good idea at the time.
Turns out at the bottom of the hill the grass wasn't nearly as soft and dry as the grass at the top of the hill.
Turns out that, in fact, the grass at the bottom of the hill had a secret layer of mud which
yr girl rolled straight into like a pro.
Completely covered in mud, white/blue hippie skirt totally ruined.
Of course he managed to totally miss the giant mud puddle and was totally fine
which annoyed me to no end until he walked over to me and picked me up, totally covering his clothes in mud as well
and carried me back to the car.
As we drove back to his place while our fingers played along to the piano in this song on the dashboard and
later, once we were clean, on his headboard.
