On This Day In History 2nd February


On This Day in 1977, Shakira was born.
Shakira is an internationally successful recording artist and judge on the American version of The Voice.
She once told a friendly squirrel that she'd get Underneath Your Clothes, Whenever, Wherever and didn't care about the Rules, so long as that squirrel was The One.
It turned out the squirrel was Ready for the Good Times and wasn't a Fool. Although what Shakira didn't realise was the squirrel had all ready read a Poem to a Horse but was willing to partake with some Animal City with Shakira as the horse had Eyes Like Yours.
Shakira was quite taken aback, but, not willing to tell the squirrel "Don't Bother," she ignored the mutterings of the dancing unicorn in the back of her mind telling her it was Illegal, and although she knew the Costume Makes The Clown, was willing to make Dreams For A Plan and told it, "I'm waiting for Your Embrace."
Wait, are there no Men In This Town?
Nope, she wanted the good stuff anyway and Did It Again. And again. For a real Long Time, watched by a She Wolf and a Gypsy.
Of course, The One Thing you have to remember, is not to use the Spotlight, and also to take your Medicine because that squirrel can Cut You Deep.
Other Celebrity Birthdays
