I’ve been thinking about Elvis Costello all day for my song du jour of the day. But I couldn’t settle on one song, until I went over to Vicki‘s. Her Mom passed away this weekend, and now my favorite blogistan sitcom, the Bud and Jan show, is off the air. And even though I went through this myself quite recently, I’m starting to realize that every situation is different, and having Been There helps you empathize, but it doesn’t teach you the right words to say to someone who’s going through it now.
Anyway. I listened to Days a lot right after my Dad died, thirteen years ago. A whole lot. Oh, and incidentally? He used to go into restaurants and ask “What’s the soup du jour of the day?” just to see the waitress look bewildered. Frequently. That’s why I keep repeating that joke, in case you were wondering. It’s kind of a tribute to my Dad. So no, even if you’re really really tired of it and you never thought it was funny in the first place, I’m not going to stop.
And I found this! Neat, huh?
