- Cal: I have an imagination. It's enough
- Kate: Please refrain from telling me all the ways that imagination out that photo to use when you got it. Thank you.
- Cal: I only did it once!
What? Everyone with a brain in their head knows Dashboard. How else do you think we made it through our teen years? Just wait until we get to the fun stuff. Your socks are gonna be blown off. [She reached over and teased his side]
I know what we need. This song always, without fail, works. Give it a listen. If you’re not smiling at the end of it, I’ll buy you a stock in Taco Bell. [Kennedy focused on the road, her fingers tapping along the wheel to the beat] This is sort of how I imagine marijuana sounding like, if it had a song. I know how silly that sounds, but I stand by it nonetheless.
We’re still in our teen years, unless you’re not telling me something. I thought fun was overrated?
[At first Cal thought it was just an old song Kennedy liked then the song morphed and he smiled a little to himself, tapping a hand on his knee lightly] I like the way you see things, even stuff like that.
This night is wild, so calm and dull— [Kennedy sang along with the song, looking over at Cal with a smirk] Still one of my favorite songs ever. I can actually tell you what I was doing the first time I heard this. Was just after school, my mom was on my case about something. I think it had something to do with buying a vintage Valentino gown on her charge card. Anyways, I had the radio on, another thing she hates, and it kinda forced a chillness in the room. I love that. When one song can literally change the mood of a situation.
[Hearing Kennedy sing, Cal snapped his head over to look at the brunette on the driver’s side, and smirked while giving her a curious look before she explained herself] Learning new stuff about you all the time, it’s exciting.
You’re right though, about a song being able to change a mood. Or keep you in the one you’re already in, that could happen too you know?
