Need You Now

Need You Now

Picture perfect memories scattered all around the floor
Reaching for the phone ’cause I can’t fight it anymore

And I wonder if I ever cross your mind?
For me it happens all the time

It’s a quarter after one, I’m all alone and I need you now
Said I wouldn’t call but I’ve lost all control and I need you now
And I don’t know how I can do without
I just need you now

Another shot of whiskey, can’t stop looking at the door
Wishing you’d come sweeping in the way you did before

And I wonder if I ever cross your mind?
For me it happens all the time

It’s a quarter after one, I’m a little drunk and I need you now
Said I wouldn’t call but I’ve lost all control and I need you now
And I don’t know how I can do without
I just need you now

Oh, whoa
Guess I’d rather hurt than feel nothing at all

It’s a quarter after one, I’m all alone and I need you now
And I said I wouldn’t call but I’m a little drunk and I need you now
And I don’t know how I can do without
I just need you now
I just need you now
Oh, baby, I need you now

Need You Now‘ ~Lady Antebellum~

It’s hot outside….and I think I need a beer! Well, back in the day I’d go to the beer fridge and get one, sip on a tall cold beer, but those days are gone…long gone. It’s been so long since I’ve had a drink I don’t even know what year it was. I guess I could have an alcohol free beer, but I really don’t like the taste of beer enough to want to. It’s more the idea of the beer that I loved, it was just something that said ‘summer’ like nothing else. Standing at the barbecue, the burgers sizzling, a tall bottle of beer in my hand and a gorgeous summer day. I hope you’re not envisioning me in a beer ad with all kinds of beautiful people bouncing around laughing and having fun. You know, the guys are all average looking, the women all drop dead gorgeous, and every one of them with a big grin on their face. No……my idea of a beer and barbecue scene looks more like this. I’m standing at smoking barbecue, waving my hand around and trying to deal with the flare ups that have grown into an inferno. I set the cold bottle of beer down, just 2 sips taken from it, and as I walk around the BBQ to shut it down I tip it over and it all spills onto the ground. I swear a bit, and then hit my head on the BBQ as I lean under to turn the propane tank off. I lift the lid and the burgers are burnt on the outside and raw on the inside, which is the exact way I DON”T want them. Luckily I’m alone so no one has witnessed this debacle and I pick up my beer bottle, and sad sad burgers to go back inside. I’ve got my hands full and as I step through the screen door it shuts to fast and scrapes all the skin off of my ankle, I swear a bit more and as I extricate my leg from the door I drop the plate of raw burgers on the floor, OH…..and here comes the dog, trotting happily in after me, and snatching a burger from the floor before I can stop her. Like a 12lb dog needs a big half-raw burger. She gobbles it down before I can stop her and I swear some more, knowing I’ll be cleaning up dog puke before the evening’s through. I put everything on the kitchen counter and sit down at the table, wondering what to have for dinner. Who feels like eating, I think I’ll just have a beer! Ok, I’m not this bad at barbecuing, really……no…..really, I’m not!

I’m at home for this shot! I’m using one of the poses from the ‘Legs for Days’ set of poses from Foxcity. The set includes 6 poses and a chair for a pose prop, which I’m not using here, plus..if you buy the fatpack there’s a bonus pose in it, for good measure. I’m kneeling on the ‘Accent Gilt Chair’ from Nutmeg, for this shot. This set of poses is available now at the Vanity Event.

The ‘Melissa’ shoes are from **UTOPIA DESIGN**. They’re fitted for the Maitreya, SLink and Belleza high feet and have such rich supple textures. I love these shoes!

The ‘Sideview Bodysuit’ is from [Vale Koer].

The ‘Ruda’ hair is from Monso. This is from the mixed pack.

As always, I’m wearing the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.
