Numerology – VJs Weekly Challenge 44





The Dope I Mean

If you’re woke
you’ll know what’s dope
I mean
I sure do
eight, eleven and two
I’m always happy with you
smiles are your signature
love is your strength
with you I can move
and I can remember,
you bring feelings alive,
in you I take pleasure.

  8. I also agree that this is a very clever use of the signature numbers of the feel-good hormone. It`s interesting that just faking a smile can increase dopamine levels. 🙂
