I can't decide...

Last night we had some people around for dinner and were listening to some music when my administrator pipes up and says, 'hey, this song reminds me of you.'

'Really?' I say 'Who sings it? Why does it remind you of me?'

'Well,' she says. 'I could just imagine you saying the chorus. Wait for the chorus - it's the type of thing you'd say.'

The song continues. It's 'I can't decide' by the Scissor Sisters.

We come to the chorus...

I can't decide
Whether you should live or die
Oh, you'll probably go to heaven
Please don't hang your head and cry
No wonder why...

Oh I could throw you in the lake
Or feed you poisoned birthday cake
I wont deny I'm gonna miss you when you're gone
Oh I could bury you alive
But you might crawl out with a knife
And kill me when I'm sleeping
That's why

I can't decide
Whether you should live or die
Oh, you'll probably go to heaven
Please don't hang your head and cry
No wonder why
My heart feels dead inside
It's cold and hard and petrified
Lock the doors and close the blinds
We're going for a ride
I can't decide whether to take it as a compliment to my management style or not.

Your administrator meant: You always weigh up the options to avoid making reckless decisions.

Oh, you'll probably go to heaven
Your administrator meant: You are charitable and wish people the best.

Oh I could throw you in the lake
Or feed you poisoned birthday cake

Your administrator meant: You are imaginative and innovative.

Oh I could bury you alive
But you might crawl out with a knife
And kill me when I'm sleeping

Your administrator meant: You have foresight and anticipate problems magnificently.

My heart feels dead inside
It's cold and hard and petrified

Your administrator meant: You are able to keep a healthy emotional distance from the difficulties around you.

Your administrator thinks very highly of you, and isn't afraid to admit it.

WHAT the?!!
Whoever Tom is, I like his take on it. :) And, well, your mom's, too, if I'm being honest.
