Well, it's true that my personal bucket thing has gone empty. For a lot of reasons, I'm just all tapped out every which way these days. But whatever. That's not the point of this blog. The point is that I'm trying to refill my personal bucket thing and to wit--this story.
I felt like some soothing, calming music might be in order to restore my ragged nerves, so the other day when I was driving around I saw a Deseret Book and the thought did occur unto me that MAYBE a cd by the Mormon Tabernacle choir might be just the thing for me.
Yes. I know.
So I pulled into the parking lot, went inside, and impulse-bought a cd (a double cd, even!) of the Mo-Tabs singing patriotic tunes.
Yes again. I know.
Anyway, I popped it into my car's cd player and after listening to the chorus of "Over There" (THE YANKS ARE COMING! THE YANKS ARE COMING!) I went what the hell.
Moral of this story: resist the temptation to impulse buy a cd of the Mo-Tabs singing patriotic tunes when you need to fill your bucket thing.
