The backstory: Saturday’s steamy hot morning found JT out early, warming up for the first cross country meet of the year. T and I headed out to IHOP to score some breakfast before we went to the meet. We made our orders and then sat and talked while we waited. Soon, the IHOP soundtrack began to intrude as we realized that it was an odd array of songs, all of them with an ear worm quality and none of them like one another. Abba, Glen Campbell, Leonard Skynard…..it was a dizzying assortment of songs you never wish to hear again. Pancakes arrived and we tucked in while the disordered playlist sang on. We finished eating and T made an announcement:
T: Let’s get out of here before Karma Chameleon comes on.
