Sunday night

Just your average American end of the weekend: I’m watching the aftermath of the Patriots’ win over the Colts, planning my work-week, drinking a Corona and eating Frank’s Red Hot sauce over… Boca meatless “chik’n nuggets”.

As DK and David Byrne would say, How did I get here?

  1. Who is this “me” character?

    They didn’t show the Pats-Colts game here, instead being tortured presented with the Texans-Raiders game. At least the Texans won.

    Are you sure the average American would be eating meatless “chik’n”? I made some sweet-and-sour chicken feet made with real chicken feet.

    It’s a real good time to be a Boston sports fan right around now.

  2. “Talking Heads – Once In A Lifetime

    ‘And you may find yourself living in a shotgun shack
    And you may find yourself in another part of the world
    And you may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile
    And you may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful wife
    And you may ask yourself-Well…How did I get here ?

    ‘Letting the days go by/let the water hold me down
    Letting the days go by/water flowing underground
    Into the blue again/after the money´s gone
    Once in a lifetime/water flowing underground.

    ‘And you may ask yourself
    How do I work this ?
    And you may ask yourself
    Where is that large automobile ?
    And you may tell yourself
    This is not my beautiful house !
    And you may tell yourself
    This is not my beautiful wife !
    Letting the days go by/let the water hold me down
    Letting the days go by/water flowing underground
    Into the blue again/after the money´s gone
    Once in a lifetime/water flowing underground.

    ‘Same as it ever was…Same as it ever was…Same as it ever was…
    Same as it ever was…Same as it ever was…Same as it ever was…
    Same as it ever was…Same as it ever was…

    ‘Water dissolving…and water removing
    There is water at the bottom of the ocean
    Carry the water at the bottom of the ocean
    Remove the water at the bottom of the ocean !

    ‘Letting the days go by/let the water hold me down
    Letting the days go by/water flowing underground
    Into the blue again/in the silent water
    Under the rocks and stones/there is water underground.

    ‘Letting the days go by/let the water hold me down
    Letting the days go by/water flowing underground
    Into the blue again/after the money´s gone
    Once in a lifetime/water flowing underground.

    ‘And you may ask yourself
    What is that beautiful house ?
    And you may ask yourself
    Where does that highway go ?
    And you may ask yourself
    Am I right ?…Am I wrong ?
    And you may tell yourself
    MY GOD !…WHAT HAVE I DONE ?

    Exactly! And now I feel so old at age 49.1 seeing these lyrics again, and remembering those years, when this was so new and hip in my day, in 1984 or so, when i came back from South Korea and Japan.

  3. Egg – I was attempting to be humorous. However, I bet the number of non-Asian folks eating Boca nuggets as = or > the number eating chicken paws.

    p.s. “me” declines to be identified other than as “someone none of you know.” It’s not my alter ego.

    DK – I can picture you in the Enormous Suit.

  4. DK and Derek, that is my favorite song! I forgot to add it to my list of underrated songs in the earlier post.

    I have found myself driving a large automobile.
