In July 2017 I bought a car. At that time it had 45,000 km on the odometer, which is partly why I bought it.
In our tradition of car-naming my daughter and I named him Thom, short for Thomas. Not Tommy, ever.
He is an indigo Blue Honda Fit.
By now, April, 2018, and Thom and I have racked up another 30,000km together. There have been things to do and people to see.
While we were driving (by ourselves, never when witnessed), a song came.
It became an earworm. Then it grew, longer and longer….
I recorded bits of it into voice memos. A few weeks ago when we parked at home, there were enough bits, so I wrote them down, strung them together and recorded a rough version.
Here it is…
…complete with frogs (one from Costa Rica, another from Toronto) and badly played xylophone (I’m a cello player, not a percussionist, damnit. Also at one point the frogs had a falling out).
Warning – it is an earworm.
