At bedtime last night, Car was (for some reason that I cannot, for the life of me, remember) singing the theme song to Mr. Ed. Except he was singing it totally wrong. If you know anything about me, you already know I had to immediately rectify this by singing the entire theme song. Yes, I have it memorized. Shut up. I also know the theme songs to Gumby, Green Acres, Small Wonder, Silver Spoons, Who’s The Boss, Growing Pains, Gummi Bears, G. I. Joe, Transformers, and The Greatest American Hero, to name just a few.
Don’t even get me started on the theme songs for the cartoons my kids watch.
I’m pretty sure this is why I’ve been unsuccessful in college thus far. There’s no room left in my brain.
After I finished singing the Mr. Ed song, Car said, “I’m pretty sure you’re the only person I know who can sing that whole song.” Well, obviously that’s wrong. After all, he knows my father, and I guarantee my father can sing it. But it got me to thinking (a dangerous pastime, I know), which made me decide it’s time for a little reader poll!
