Maybe it’s because I love her so much, but my wife possesses the uncanny ability to put together a mix with hardly any effort at all.
Last night I came home from work to find my wife slouched forward at my laptop wiht her mouth slightly ajar browsing my iTunes collection. I should say ‘our’. I was like, “whatcha doin?”
This morning I asked her if she’d like to listen to her mix. Of course. I synched it onto my iPod and placed it in the dock that is hooked up to our stereo.
Even the name of the mix was better than all of mine. It was titled, “Christi’s Coolio Mix”.
This is what it looks like (click on image to see it larger):
Each song locks in seamlessly to the mix giving tired tracks new vigor. I have no idea how she managed to toss in the obscure Monkey in Your Soul, Steely Dan tune between two new indie bands, but it totally works.
Christi’s ability to make a perfect mix is matched by her complete genius when it comes to decoupage.
Case in point:
To me, it’s seeing the mix.
