I never ....


....want to be woken, in the wee hours of a morning, with the question...

"Did you leave the hall lights on or is the house on fire?
"

I had lain down for a nap and gotten into that sweet, sweet spot where you know that sleep is .... just there; don't reach, it'll come to you ...and I got a buzz that told me I had a text message. I, being a normal, selfish sort, ignored it and continued to zone into that sweet, sweet spot....and buzz again. Ok....somebody died. I have to look. So I roused myself and fiddled the phone to see what was the matter.....first text: "Did you take my keys?". Second text: "Never mind".

Yup...what roused me was a "Never mind" text.

There are few things in life as ...(ahem)....bothersome(?)...as a "Never mind" text...
and yet there is always the voice, enchanting and endearing (vocally and lyrically) that, never the less, hangs on like:







You are welcome...and I am

Nope don't much like Paul Williams either.... song's not bad - but depressing.....

Bryan Adams is more my speed - 18 till I die.... but that's my "Peter Pan" complex rearing it's ugly head again..........

Question - why would you take someone else's keys???

Re: music
Ok..the last shall be first:

I think the "didja take my keys" thing is human nature. Whenever I misplace something, I'm immediately sure that it's someone else's fault 'cause, hey, I don't make mistakes. :-)

And the first shall be last:

I was actually doing a joke to myself with Paul Williams. One of my earliest posts was about having his voice stuck in a loop in my mind's ear singing a line from "Evergreen" (the song for "A star is born" with Streisand. It won the academy award for best song for he and Barbara which means, to me, that she was in the room when he wrote it). Anyway...I just meant to tease myself a bit about that...but I guess you don't remember that post.

No worries.

Be well...and be in love...that's a good thing ;-)
