Tonight at dinner someone said "A long, long time ago ..."
Then I started to sing "I can still remember how that music used to make me smile."
I know all the words to Don McLean's American Pie, so this went on for some time. Then I explained to my daughters the tragedy about which the song was written. Then when my husband couldn't immediately name The Big Bopper's big song, I was forced to sing Chantilly Lace. I know all those words, too.
Both my daughters looked at me as though they were seriously considering having me committed before I could make good on that promise to coordinate a flash mob at their respective schools.
Then as I was editing photos tonight, I thought the branches behind this pretty tulip blooming in my back yard looked an awful lot like Chantilly Lace had a pretty face and a ponytail, hangin' down.....
Obviously I still have some catching up to do on my sleep post-time change.
