Ok, if someone told you that you were "sexy" would your initial reaction be that the person thought you were physically attractive, or that your attitude was "sexy"?My answer:
First I would think EWWWWWW! because the only person at my work that would say that is ******* and he totally gacks me out. ***shudder***And there you have it. The veritable chicken vs. egg and which looks better in corduroy debate.
I would say sexy is physically attractive. But to me it's a package deal. When I feel sexy I tend to look sexy. And vice versa. I can't look sexy in my really long brown, corduroy skirt. I look cute and very Banana Republic, but not sexy. Even if I did the sexy hair and sexy walk, yeah, the sexy is just not going to happen.
Now a simple jeans and cute shirt - that can be pulled off as sexy or cute. Just depends on the attitude.
Hmmm. I'm going to have to change my answer after talking it all out.
I say sexy is in the attitude, not physical.

Thanks for your nice comments. Where did you manage to find the lyrics? The jingle production company calls that "Ah Kansas" that is stuck in your mind "the hook." Once you hear it it's hard to forget.
It has now been 25 years since it first went on the air in 1982! I plan to play some of the various versions on my Saturday morning radio program in the coming weeks. If you live in the Wichita area you can hear them on the air again or on the podcast. I will try and attach an mp3 file of one version to this e-mail. Please let me know if it works. Bet "the hook" will get even your Texas born husband singing along!
all the best, gene
Thank you so much for creating the Ah, Kansas! ad campaign. It was brilliant. I am still singing the song 20-something years later.
I hope you can help me with a little dilemma. I am searching for the Ah, Kansas! ad song so I can let my husband hear the whole song and can't find it anywhere.
This song filters into my head and, apparently, out my mouth on a regular basis. The problem is that the song coming out of my mouth is:Dun dun duh duh dun duh dun dun dah AHHH KAN-SAS!
(repeat this line over and over and over)
The issue now is that this same version of the song is now coming out of my TX-born husband's mouth, too. I guess I sing it a whole lot more than I thought.
I found the lyrics online, but my singing just can't do the song justice. Do you know where I can get a copy of the original ad with the lady singing the Ah - Kansas song?
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
I hope I hear from Gene soon.
