A while back, one of my Twitter friends posted a photo of a funny trend going around Phoenix, wherein people put up flyers in coffee shops and cafés featuring Lionel Richie’s somber, yearning face and the text: “Hello … is it me you’re looking for?” Now perhaps you need to be somewhat of an 80′s music connoisseur to appreciate this, as the song “Hello” had its heyday back in 1984. But as one who grew up listening to Lionel Richie on vinyl, rocking my little tush out to “Dancing on the Ceiling” and “All Night Long”, I have a soft spot for his music – and as one of his most romantic/haunting ballads, it tickled me to think that “Hello” was turning into some kind of meme. Imagine my surprise when I found it on a t-shirt as well!
Maybe it’s my goofy sense of humor, but I think it would be kind of epic to wear this shirt on a first date. If she’s got a good sense of humor (and even better, an appreciation for 80′s music) you are so golden!
