I write because I have come to an interesting conclusion as a result of the Johnsica union that no one else seems to have mentioned yet. And to me, personally, this is a big deal. Here it is:
She must be cool.
I italicize "must" because up until Johnsica, there was no real reason to think of Mrs. Chicken of the Sea as cool. I think popular opinion of Simpson through her break up with Mr. Chicken of the Sea (Nick, if you're reading this, I had to do it) is as follows:
- Attractive, possibly even hot
- Decent singer
- Allegedly religious
- Alleged pre-marriage virgin
- Often cavity ridden
- Dumb as rocks
My other reason for italicizing "must" is based on my personal opinion of John Mayer. I could really try to explain it to you, or I could explain it in the way most of my bros would explain it to you - "Luke would have John Mayer's butt baby." Which is a much cruder way of saying I have a severe man-crush on the dude. In defense of my man-crush, I find the dude to be the best guitar player I've ever come across, I find his lyrical subject matter to be truly unique and often thought-provoking (at least personally), the few personal interactions I've had with him (sadly, they were non-romantic) along with all his blog entries reveal him to be extremely intelligent, humorous and having not only a great taste in music, but one that is remarkably congruent with my own. Also I appreciate the way he's handled fame and musical success. I think he's still a normal person and hasn't gone Maroon 5 on us (read: turned into a pompous d-bag). I also think he has really put out the albums he's wanted to put out at each turn in his career (and even possibly in doing so introduced an entire generation of screaming 15 year old girls to blues music via his album "Try!").
Ok, I probably would have his butt baby.
So, play along and assume all my thoughts about John are true. Why in the hell would he date a pop-singing platinum blond that can't do laundry (literally) and thinks buffalo wings are made from actual buffaloes (she basically has no idea what she's ingesting at any moment)? When rumors of Johnsica first popped up, I chalked it up to "Go 'head, John. Get your groove back." But you have to disregard that John was only interested in bullet #1 above now that this "relationship" has gone on for months, right? After a while, you have to be able to enjoy each other's company, have interesting conversations, etc. Along that lines, I suppose it's possible to think that John has shunned all his apparent intelligence and now enjoys dining while wondering and really not knowing what type of animal he's eating, but that just doesn't seem likely to me.
With all that in mind, we have to assume that Jessica is actually cool. She can keep up with a someone from the Berklee School of Music in a conversation about the history of the blues. She has a full understanding of dry, sarcastic comedy. Maybe she even learned to do laundry.
She must be cool.
Otherwise, I've been impregnated by a long-haired falsetto-voiced idiot.
