Sleep-Deprived And Theorizin' On Billy Joel Lyrics

So, I'm not getting a shitload of sleep lately, and that does some weird things to my brain...For instance, I recently heard the Billy Joel song "Scenes From An Italian Restaurant"...It's the one that starts out as some sort of romantic come on, but then turns into a story song about Brenda and Eddie(you know- the popular steadies, and the king and the queen of the prom, driving around with the cartop down and the radio on ?) and he sings about how they graduate from high school and get married and then fight and divorce...Now here's where I ask you to open up your mind reeeeaaaal wide...He starts the narrative about people being there waving Brenda and Eddie goodbye at their wedding, then he sings about them setting up their home, and money getting tight and them breaking up...Then he ends it with "That's all I heard about Brenda and Eddie, I can't tell you more because I told you already, and here we are waving Brenda and Eddie goodbye"...Now here's what I was theorizing, what if all the post marriage stuff didn't actually happen ? And the narrator was just being this cynical dude at their wedding ? And he was talking about what was going to happen to them ?What do you think ?

Hi, my friend told me about your blog you have here and I too think it's great. I really like it when people compliment my blog so I'm doing that for you. Hope you don't mind, I bookmarked your site.
I too have a site about Rash Guards and Rash Vests, and some other things. Feel free to check it out. It isn't anything special but if you have an interest in surfing, sports apparel or Rash Guards you may find it useful. Tyler - to go to my site click surf rash guards

Wow !! That's a great friend you have...And I might as well count them as a friend of mine, for, in fact, I happen to currently have a rash that I am very interested in guarding !! It is geting some unsavory stares from some of the "characters" in my neighborhood, and I'm afraid they might have designs on absconding with my rash...And then where would I be ? Rashless and sad, that's where !!
