The synapses aren’t firing. It’s been a really long day, and I’m completely wiped out. In an effort to keep the Post a Day alive without boring anyone with drivel, I will leave you with a short ditty that we used in high school. It’s not mine and I don’t know who it belongs to, but like the senseless camp songs we used to sing, it’s kinda fun.
Can’t think, brain dumb
Inspiration won’t come.
Can’t write, bad pen,
Best wishes, Amen.
Maybe I’ll be more clever tomorrow.
We had a different one –
(cross your legs and arms)
I am slowly going crazy
1 2 3 4 5 6 switch
(switch positions by crossing your legs and arms the other way)
crazy going slowly am I
6 5 4 3 2 1 switch
(switch positions again)
(keep singing, faster and faster each time)
And then there’s: 1 2 3 4 5 / Once I caught a fish alive / why did you let him go? / because he bit my finger so / which finger did he bite? / the little finger on the right
Funny how these things stick with you…
I love those songs!There were so great. I get a kick out of seeing kids sing them even now.
