Rocket Man thinks its going to be a long long time, but I don't, I am sure I am going back to that bar soon.

Having a rain storm hit while you are at an outside bar in Miami, means the following: First of all, you pay up your tab. Then you go inside, but the inside is packed out the wazoo. As soon as it trickles down a little, you go back outside, so now its just you and the bartendress, that still happens to be working the outside.
She is glad to have someone to talk with and pour for.
If you get some old school music in your head, say, "Rocket Man" from 1972 by Elton John and you start singing along, cause it makes you feel good, that would be a good and decent end to your Thursday Night.
If the other people that trickle out of the inside, because the rain subsided and they sing along with you , then all the better.

Life can suck but even when it does, it will give you spurts and pieces of not sucking.

Rocket Man is one of those songs you can sing at a bar, and if the mood is right, the entire bar sings with you. I love that song.

So true, but in reality it wasn't the whole bar it was just three of us...

Yeah, you stick with any Elton John or Billy Joel hits & you're sure to get a few people chiming in. Those are always fun songs...especially with a beer in your hand.
