Just moments ago, I returned from Walgreen’s. I went to pick up a little sleep aid and some chocolate since it was on sale. (See that excuse for chocolate?) Upon arrival, they were piping in “Love of a Lifetime” by Firehouse which I find to be an interesting song to be playing in Walgreen’s. It’s also “our song”.
The next song that came on was “Stray Cat Strut” by the Stray Cats. I really love me some Stray Cats – Brian Setzer Orchestra too. I was singing along as I stepped up to the cashier. The cashier, a young man of about 17 at most, said to me, “I end up singing these songs all of the time. They just repeat them over and over.” Without even thinking, I replied that I sing along with these songs because I had ALREADY BEEN BORN when they came out. I guess I should’ve just taken my shoe off and started eating it right then.
His response? “Oh yeah, my mom listens to this stuff all of the time.”
I must’ve made some sort of face because he tried to clean it up with, “Well, at least it’s good.”
Damage done, kid. Damage done.
At least I have chocolate and I’m getting a good night’s sleep.
