Today’s post comes from Verily Sherrilee
I’m on vacation this week. I’m not doing anything special – just hanging around the house. A little gardening, a little cooking, a little studio time, a little reading. OK – a lot of reading.
I’ve gotten a couple of earworms this week, which is way more than usual. First I got a Beach Boys song stuck for most of a day (Help Me Rhonda) and then yesterday it was The Girl From Ipanema. I don’t remember what started this and I don’t even know the lyrics to this song, but it stuck around all day. Finally after several hours I started to hum and then eventually, as I was working in my studio, I began to sing the tune out loud.
I can carry a tune. I’m in a choir. I’ve even sung at the Guthrie (as part of the choir, not on my own). But when I started to sing, both dogs, who had been snoozing away on the floor near my feet, got up and left the room.
Both of them.
Do you sing the car or the shower?
