File this under “the brain is a weird and wonderful thing”.
I don’t know about you guys but I suspect I haven’t watched an episode of “Alice” since the early to mid-1980s. I don’t spend a great deal of time pondering the show but I have to admit it’s come to mind at least twice in the last year. Once when Vera died and once because Linda Lavin played a small role in “The Intern“, a really crappy De Niro film my wife made me watch with her. I do also tell people to “kiss my grits” every now and then.
Still, waking up with the the theme from “Alice” in my head was unexpected. It proves the brain is capable of doing some really throw-back things early in the morning. I woke up singing, “there’s a new girl in town [and she’s feeling good]*. She was just passing through buuut if things work out, she’s going to stayyyy!”. I had to Google the lyrics just to make sure it actually was the theme from Alice.
Anyway, if you are unfamiliar with the song, you may watch it below. God bless America for inventing Youtube.
* Not an actual lyric. Brain was filling in gaps, apparently.
