Bad Time for Bonzo
In highschool I had a couple different groups of friends. I had my (very) small group of girlfriends and then I had all my guy friends. Danny, Brad, Clay, Tom, Joey, Dano, Tyler, Erin, etc. It’s not the lyrics that mean a lot to me, but every time I hear this song I think of highschool afternoons and weekends at Danny’s house. Bad Time for Bonzo was a song in a snowboard video they’d all watch (and I’d watch just because I was there, duh). It reminds me of all of them. And it reminds me of really easy and happy days. And now, were all over the place. We have families, jobs. Clay is gone and another of our friends is having a rough go of it. We don’t see each other as often as I wish we did, but it doesn’t matter. When we do see each other, we pick up right where we left off.
Check out my friend Matt’s Project 52. Matt happens to also be my kids’ teacher and reading what he has to write makes me feel so lucky that my kids are with him every day.
