I wrote this song on January 24, 2011. My mother had fixed a really awesome meal -- chicken tenders and french fries, a real treat for gluten-free girl like myself. I came home and saw the meal and thought it was wonderful. Panic ensued when I checked the fridge and discovered that there was NO DIPPING SAUCE-- no honey mustard, no barbeque sauce, not even ketchup. It was at this point-- when I found myself exiting the house and leaving hot food behind in pursuit of the local grocery store-- that I realized just how central condiments were to my existence. It was during that short trip to the store that I wrote most of the song and in a crazy three-hour creativity session in my room that night (I did eat the food first, don't worry) I laid down this love song to condiments.
Special thanks to those who helped me turn this crazy music video idea into reality:
- My friend Sally Lok, who shot and edited the video and took me way more seriously than she should have.
- My sister Nicole, who shopped for props and storyboarded with me while sitting beside a flowing stream, among other things.
- My sister LaKisha, who did my makeup and an outstanding job holding the fan to blow my hair, among other things.
(Both sisters were also forced to attend planning meetings).
- My nephew Isaiah, who shared his cuteness, after much coaxing.
