Legal Quandary

Wednesday, July 27, 2005


Is there anything worse than lying awake at 2, 3, and 4 A.M. knowing that everyone else in the house is dreaming blissfully?

Probably not, unless it’s the song The Candy Man from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. The DVD was on sale at Target the other day - packaged together with The Wizard of Oz! Watching it with Lil Q the other morning, I was reminded of how much I hated that song from the very first time I heard it.

I was in kindergarten. It was our Christmas concert. We all had to sit on stage holding these lame construction paper candy canes while some redheaded and out-of-key 6th grader sang that stupid song. I hated it so much that I started covering my ears during the rehearsals. When I covered my ears during the actual performance, my teacher was horrified.

I like to think my parents were amused though.

hehe.. you were young... you should be forgiven (esp since it was an honest reflex).
