talking about. That stuff that you see that makes you strain your
eyeballs with all the rolling, but when you yourself are in the midst of

Experienced: The screaming! The penis whistles! Being drunk with all of your girlfriends! While wearing your old prom dress! Too awesome.Being (by far) the tallest person in the crowd

hear my tender singer-songwriters over all that thumping.
“I love this song so hard! And the only way to truly experience it is
to turn is up as loud as I can, roll my windows down and nod my head emphatically to the beat!”Wearing a band’s t-shirt to their concert, then yelling all the lyrics and jabbing your finger in the air

tattoo of one of their album covers you could get the point across more
Experienced: “I have been looking forward to this for. ever. I must communicate my love for this music in every way I know how.”What things annoy you when witnessed but float your boat when you’re doing them?
