Who's With Me on This?
Justin Timberlake's HBO Special
Okay. So he teeters just a hair on the not-so-cutting-edge of dweebie. But consider this: How many dweebazoid boys (or girls, for my 1.75 male readers) did you know in junior high and high school who grew up to know exactly what they were doing and now you could just smack yourself silly in the forehead for passing them right on by?
S.B. rolls his eyes like the end of the world were 2.5 seconds away and I was still figuring out what to wear whenever I mention just how underfreakingestimated I think Mr. Timberlake is in the greater pantheon of Popular Music. But I don't care. I've always been able to sniff out the diamonds amongst the rough. And I'm going with my instincts here: Justin Timberlake is very sparkly.
Besides, he's from the south, despite S.B.'s protestations to the contrary. (To my beau if it ain't Louisiana, Mississippi, or Alabama, it's "up north.")
Anyhoo. Admit it. You know you wanna turn around so he'll pick up the slack.
