Life above the Laundry-O-Mat
At the Suds and Duds,
It can be interesting,
I live above the Mat,
But not for long, I hope.
I met my boyfriend, Jim Bob there
Said he needed to do a load once
That’s how we met.
Today the Import guy from India
Came in, He said he is a consultant,
Or something like that, he said,
He makes systems for big hotel chains,
But I think he sells washers and dryers.
He calls me Princess, that’s funny,
He said he wasn’t selling anything today,
Just needed to do a load maybe,
Then he said, Princess, I feel like dancing,
So I turned on his favorite station,
And he danced, while i just watched.
I could not believe it, so funny,
He was twerking and clapping to India Rap,
It was all I could do to fluff and fold,
Then he ask me to join him.
And I said, “What do you think this is,”
Bollywood or something, I said;
I can’t do that, he was twerking his neck,
Stomping one foot, then the other,
Then, he clapped three times and repeated,
And I just laughed and I tried it.
So I told him, at the Laundry- o-mat,
“Hey Import man, “I need my music to dance,
Looking for none of that.” I said,
I can’t do the Indian dance.
When I told him that, he laughed,
Then we did a number together,
My girlfriends just watched,
They were so jealous.
How about it, it’s the first time,
I’d seen anything like that,
But it made us happy,
And that’s all I know about that.
Life above the Laundry-O-Mat
It ain’t so bad, because today we laughed
And we danced, and it felt good,
Something like that,
If you know what I mean.
Growing up my friends lived above the laundromat so when Saturday wash day came around I loved it. I have been wanting to do a photo shoot in a laundromat
You should do something like that. Always something fun going on. I think we are planning a block party on the street this summer. Bring a dish to share, BYOB and your lawn chair. And your camera and hang. Your invited.
What state lol. I’m in SC. Thank you
California, but any of them will do, I’m sure.
Yes I have a local one here that I been thinking about. Now I’m looking fir the person to do it with me
To do what with you at the laundromat?
Sorry lol .. To do a photo shoot with me.

I lived above a bakery when I was in university. Guys I dated always wanted to know what perfume I was wearing because I smelled..so..good…LOL. I have to just wonder where this was done – manhattan???? people just look dazed.
We shot this at Heathrow.
ahhhh. that makes sense. I enjoyed it thoroughly. good dance. reminds me of my long gone youth!
Its just how I dance. Thank you. I nominated you for the Angel award: http://lifewithcatnip.com/2014/06/12/angel-award/
I liked the dance -lots of fun. If I had been in line, I’d have danced with you! I thank you for the nomination but I do not accept awards. But this makes me really smile that you would nominate me for such a wonderful award. and since you are nominating, that means you received the award. Congratulations to you! I always like it when bloggers I enjoy get awards, especially something like the angel award.
Wonderful, enjoyed it, never thought the “Laundry-O-Mat” could be such a great muse. “Dance Like Nobody’s Watching” great video paired with your words!
Thank you and I have so much fun writing it. She is always waiting for something or an event to make it interesting. But mostly readable. She is quite a character the way she looks at things. If you know what I mean.
