I have friends who live off of a road called, “Heck of a Hill Road”… no kidding.
This winter, my poor car, Bruce, could not make it up to their houses for good, fun times.
So, I’d have to park at the bottom and a friend would have to shuttle me up.
The first time someone picked me up, I thanked them with a mix cd from my collection in my car.
The next time, I rewarded a ride with yet another mix cd from my car collection.
It kinda became my M.O.
And then I gave a mix from my car to my friend, Allison.
– Yes! Oh, I’m excited about this… We listen to your other mixes all the time during car pools.
– Yay! That’s awesome.
– I think it’s so cute that you still make mix cds.
– Oh, thanks.
Wait, what?! Cute?? Still??
I LOVE making mix cds. It’s my love language.
Making mix cds definitely a staple for any package sent, any gift given, any road trip taken, any relationship started.
I just gave one to a friend yesterday!
It reads, “Mix CDs from Rach… Reason #287 to Move Back to Jackson”.
But maybe I’m behind the times… Maybe it’s not cool anymore. Oh well. I very much like the writing on the disc, the packaging in a magazine page, the physical gift of dancing, singing times.
This is not sufficient: http://www.mixpod.com/playlist/47998213 But I did give it a shot. Take a listen if you’d like.
