Pasta

Looks good, doesn’t it? Before you do a double take, I haven’t turned this into a food blog overnight, I just wanted to change things up a bit.

This post is about a song. One of my new favorites actually. It’s called “Pasta” by New Rules, and it came out last year. When I first heard it, I wasn’t sure what to make of it, but when I came across it again recently it gave me, as one might say, all the feels.

All she wanted was a bowl of pasta

Without anybody lookin’ at her

So I asked her “Baby, what’s the matter

With that?”

Sweatpants, hair up on the sofa

It’s way down yeah,

that’s how I know you

She said “Do I look alright?

I, I don’t wanna go out tonight.”

So we can stay in and I can make you something

We ain’t gotta dress up for nothing

Feet up with the TV on

And all she wanted

All she wanted was a bowl of pasta

Without anybody lookin’ at her

So I asked her “Baby, what’s the matter

With that?”

She said “I know it’s

stupid, but it’s

complicated

There’s been a lot of

pressure on me lately

To wake up every day

and look amazing”

So I said “You’re the

prettiest thing in the

world”

Look at what we’ve

done to the girl

From just the first verse and the refrain, it’s clear that this song is about a girl frustrated with society’s expectations, and so her boyfriend tries to comfort her. It’s about a simple night of staying in, enjoying a judgement free zone with comfort food (and presumably a good movie or a comfort TV show)

This song hit me so hard in the feels because I can’t wait to get to that point in my life. And by that I mean 1) having a romantic relationship of some kind, and 2) that romantic relationship taking place in an unconditionally judgement free zone where I can just relax and be myself. I will finally be able to unlearn being so self-conscious about what other people think of me.

But first, I have to test the water …
