My Covid Diary: March 26, 2020

Dear Covid Diary,

Ever get a song stuck in your head for no reason? Oh yeah, you don’t have a head. You are just a journal… but this peculiar thing happens a lot to humans.

I woke up this morning with The Waitresses’ I Know What Boys Like stuck in my craw.

I haven’t heard this song in forever. There was no reason for it to suddenly appear.

I know what boys like
I know what guys want

I hadn’t thought about that song since the ’80s. I didn’t go to a restaurant with a waitstaff yesterday…

I see them looking
I make them want me

Arrrgh! The brutal part is that the song followed me to the grocery store. Worse. I am a chronic whistler (Hey! Shut up. I am over 50 and I can annoy the general public as I see fit!).

People looked at me as I grabbed my pesto and some sausage.

I got my cat moves
That so upset them

A good friend once said just sing a bit of A Kind of Hush and it will knock any other song from your brain.

There’s a kind of hush all over the world tonight
All over the world you can hear the sounds of lovers in love

Of course, now that is stuck in my head,

Covid Diary. I need a song to knock that one out. What’s that, Diary? What do you say?

I know what boys like
Boys like, boys like me

Until tomorrow,


P.S. Is “The Loose Stool Pigeons” a good band name?
