A Voice That Would Scarcely Reach The Second Story Of A Dollhouse
My MP3 player freaked out at some digital outrage, probably visited on my Fronkenshteen pixelbox by my inquisitive son, and I had to press the big button that goes all Carthage on its ass. I lazily swept the dustbin of songs on my desktop back into it, and the juxtapositions are jarring, to say the least. My wife says if she hears "Freddie's Dead" one more time, Freddie's going to have company.
I don't need a lot of entertainment while I'm working because I never hear much of it. The machines and the earmuffs drown it out, so I can listen to the same old stuff over and over.
Blossom Dearie appeared during a ceasefire, and I actually stopped for a moment and listened to it. It's like applause, except she's dead and I just glued something instead of clapping. But the sentiment was there for a fleeting moment. Hope it carries her another furlong through the hearafter... er, hereafter.
I like the mistake better.
