I have no original thoughts today, so here are the lyrics to this morning’s best song, “Smothered in Hugs”:

In the summer that you came

There was something eating everyone

And the sunshine fund was low

We couldn’t greet you

With a simple hello

And the watchers of the flood

Were busy in their chambers

Making sure there was new blood

To sustain their dying veins

But I believed you

No need for further questioning

I’m gonna leave with you

You can teach me all you know

Which way will we go now

On our trip to taller windows

I really don’t know now

I really don’t know

In the winter that you left

There was business as usual

With the same old fears and frustrations

But the word got out

It was really such a pity

But the judges and the saints

And the textbook committee

Decided you should be left out

Not even mentioned

But I believed you

No need for further questioning

I’m gonna leave with you

You can teach me all you know

Which way will we go now

On our trip to taller windows

I really don’t know now

I really don’t know

WHY I’M ANGRY TODAY

I wasn’t named the MVP of my Little League All-Star Game in 1983, despite going 2-2 with the game-winning RBI.
