Sing it Mick! “but if you try some time, you just might find, you just might find, you get what you...need!” We waited three months for our couch, four months for a coat hook, and are still waiting for the window cleaner’s bid, so we get it now. Bike helmets never arrived in our shipment, and the weather now is perfect for a ride, so quick to the bike shop to replace them. Four bike shops and a bunch of rejected bike helmets later. Lady, you want blue? Mister, you want one that looks like something a boy would actually wear? No pasa nada, two weeks to order! Never mind we say. Khaki is sort of like a shade of blue, and the bandana one is black, boys can wear that right? And who cares if the box is damaged and it’s probably been on someone else’s head. We’ll be safe with these. You can’t always get what you want, but you get what you need! Is that also why when I ordered an orange juice and a coffee at 9:00 this morning, the waiter brought me an orange juice and a beer?
