MI... the most incredible

I’d heard about MI long before I listened to ‘safe’ - his hit track. And then, one sunny morning, as I drove down to the office, it came on the radio. And I thought to myself, this most be the most creative stuff I’ve heard in a while.

And like a typical writer, I was dying to write a piece on him, something sweltering with ingenuity.
But things went awry with some manager who told me, ‘I’m sorry we will be delivering some invitation to some people, BUT you have to come down to pick yours’.
This piece of information was in regards to his Listening party.

Ok… so what’s wrong with this statement? Everything!

Everyone is a brand; if you are too ‘modest’ to recognise that, then you can let others walk right on top of your head.

I am not immodest, but I know who I am. Etiquette demands a certain procedure when delivering a message like that.
Of course, there are a number of dispatch guys working in the company, and I would have had no qualms sending one over to get the IV since I was taking the whole thingy as an official assignment, but after been warned in advance that I’d be squatting on the floor close to someone ‘better’ at the event, I hissed and said, what the hell, I’d rather watch pinky and the brain than bother with this charade.

But I got the CD, and it’s the best gift I’ve given to myself in a long while. He’s got this sexy husky voice. And no matter what y’all say, ‘Forever’ is the best song ever!

Word!

Hmm haven't heard of MI...what does the MI stand for?

Isi said...

sade, loool!!! u too? at least they didnt tell u to trek down to collect the IV. anyway, i like him just as much as i may like kanye or Jay Z, i try not to playa hate, as much as i think the whole crew can get me sick with their childishness. i want to face the fact and say, MI did a good job.
