trying to be me

Just a Girl

Leave a comment

There’s a song that appears in a particular scene of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, I believe in the first season, probably in the first episodes.  I remember the song so clearly and I can almost picture what is happening in the scene as the song plays.  But not exactly.  Not quite.

The reason my mind is now plagued with this song is that I was browsing around on OKCupid, a dating site that is mildly amusing but as a whole just annoys me.  I created a new profile, picked a new username, uploaded a photo and started browsing.  Window shopping, if you will, for a girl for fantasy.  Perhaps more, but right now, just for fantasy.  One in particular had the username that spelled out Just a Girl by changing and omitting letters to make it look clever.

Mid-shag, with hubs pounding away behind me, this song just popped into my head.  And it’s funny how just a word can create such a memory.  But it got me thinking.  I’m just a girl.  I can’t control everything or everyone.  I want the things I want and nothing more.  I do for others to a fault.  I want to please my husband even though I have little or no interest in being with another woman.  I’m smart, and creative, caring and kind.  But in the end, I’m just a girl.

What songs pop into your head at the most random times?
